PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT

Preparing for sustainable motorways

Reducing our ecological footprint is a goal for all Group activities. Through network construction and maintenance activities, customer service and energy performance improvements, APRR departments work together to organise the emergence of sustainable motorways

APRR operates a biodiversity, soil and natural resource preservation policy. The Group is also committed to cutting greenhouse gas emissions and fighting pollution. 

In 2013, AREA became the first motorway operator to receive QSE (Quality, Safety, Environment) certification vindicating APRR’s sustained effort in this area.

MANAGING THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF OUR ACTIVITIES

MANAGING THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF OUR ACTIVITIES

Like Eiffage, APRR believes that the challenges facing the living world and the environment are best addressed by considering every link in the chain formed by the Group’s activities, including network construction and maintenance, customer service and improvements in energy performance.
Implementing the environmental protection policy accounts for 12% of the cost of a new motorway. Protecting the environment and reducing the impact of our activities are key goals of all APRR projects.
