What is your career path at Brezillon?   
I joined Brezillon in 2012 in the price studies department. I started working on earthworks and soil, groundwater and air pollution control in 2014. In 2017, I took over responsibility for the works team of the real estate remediation division in Ile-de-France.  
Since 2022 and in connection with the national development of Brézillon's environmental activities, I have been in charge of the South East agency. 
This new perimeter is a challenge with real development opportunities. 

You are currently Deputy Head of Department for the South East and Industry France region. Can you tell us about your daily routine?   
My day-to-day work consists of assisting my clients with earthmoving and soil, groundwater and air pollution control issues in the context of their projects. More specifically, I offer them treatment and recovery solutions to optimise clean-up costs and make their projects more reliable. Very often, these are real estate projects, brownfield sites to be reconverted or urban industrial sites to be rehabilitated. On this type of project, where we must be a force of proposal, I favour the use of the range of Brézillon's patented solutions as well as the reuse of materials on site once they have been treated.  
The future of our business lies in our ability to put the circular economy and low carbon at the heart of our development. 
More generally, I am delighted to be able to contribute to the development of Brézillon's sites nationwide and thus extend Bouygues Construction's influence in terms of the circular economy. 

There is a lot of talk about Net Zero Artificialisation (NZA). Can you tell us more about this and how it works on your site?   
Human activity has consequences on our environment and we are measuring climate change more and more every day. Without immediate action to try and stop environmental change, it will be difficult to do anything about it. 
It is in this context that the Climate and Resilience Act introduces the notion of Net Zero Land Cover (NZL) as a target to be achieved by 2050. 
It is not a question of achieving a zero level of soil artificialisation but rather of finding the right balance, while preserving the biodiversity of sites.  
Every year, France loses nearly 30,000 hectares of land to artificial development. The land loses all its ecological functions (biodiversity reservoir, water infiltration, etc.). The law provides for incentives for construction contractors to reuse previously built-up areas.  
As a company specialising in the environment and in particular in the remediation of polluted sites and soils, we are directly concerned. It is up to us to give a real dynamic to denatured land and thus limit artificialization and urban sprawl. 
To this end, we use our expertise in polluted sites and soils not only to give new life to wastelands but also to compensate for the impact of construction projects through renaturation actions.   
For example, on one of our sites in the Hauts-de-Seine, we removed a concrete pavement and replaced it with a park including an ecological corridor, to connect protected areas and thus maintain the continuity of biological processes. 

As a company specialising in the environment, what are you doing to limit the carbon impact of your activities? 
There are several solutions to limit the carbon footprint of our work sites: 
The use of alternative modes of transport such as river transport, particularly for the evacuation of excavated material to recovery sites. 
On the Cormeilles-en-Parisis operation, entrusted by Urbanera, we carry out 100% of our evacuations by river using barges (5 times less CO² emissions than a conventional truck!)  
On-site treatment and recovery: a solution that we are implementing on the ZAC des Fabriques XXL project in Marseille and that allows us to greatly limit the evacuation and input of materials. To do this, we have set up an ephemeral platform which aims to accompany the various lots until 2025 and thus reduce CO² emissions by 70%.
