An innovative, responsible and committed player
In 2019, Bouygues Construction reasserted its determination to honour its “Shared Innovation” promise by building innovative, responsible and committed projects with its partners and employees for customers, local authorities and the environment.
Innovative, because its products and services are designed to support the transition to more sustainable environments.
Responsible, because the Group factors the challenges facing its stakeholders and their environments into what it does, whether they be its own employees, customers, partners or users.
Committed, because it contributes to the major societal shifts that are under way, whilst creating value and jobs.
Two fundamental commitments: health & safety and ethics
The health and safety of its employees is an absolute priority for Bouygues Construction, reflected in a single global standard: the “zero accident” objective. This aim is expressed in several initiatives, such as workforce training, continuous improvement of construction methods, anti-addiction campaigns and more stringent on-site controls.
Each day, Bouygues Construction helps to build tomorrow’s world in an innovative, responsible and committed way, and to make the worksite the finest place on earth.
Innovation was once again the watchword in 2019 thanks to the Casablanca Finance City tower, whose bold architecture puts Casablanca on the map as a modern city that is reinventing its business district.
On the Clement Canopy worksite in Singapore, modular construction is emerging as a revolutionary solution for tomorrow's buildings.
There were a number of major highlights throughout the year such as the signing of the partnership with Hoffman Green Cement Technologies. This technical and commercial agreement is driven by the desire to innovate and transform our way of building by using more environmentally-friendly concrete.
2019 also saw a number of major construction projects such as Europe’s most modern gas-fired power plant in Kiel, Germany, a timber-structure youth hostel in Paris, the construction of Îlot Fertile, the first zero-carbon district in Paris, the building of a data centre in London and of luxury apartments in Miami (The Arte project).
Furthermore, in 2019, Bouygues Construction inaugurated TopSite, a label of excellence that recognises the exemplarity of projects in all the geographies where it is present.
In the domain of Corporate Social Responsibility, Bouygues Construction celebrated the tenth anniversary of its corporate foundation Terre Plurielle. Since its creation, Terre Plurielle has supported 216 partner charities and 290 projects in the areas of healthcare, employment and education for disadvantaged people. Operating in 36 countries, its success is based on the dedicated employees of Bouygues Construction who have been putting all their energy and skills into these initiatives for the last ten years.
