For several years now, the city of Issy-les-Moulineaux has pledged and implemented a proactive sustainable development policy, particularly in the field of environmental quality of buildings. In cooperation with various partners within the municipality, the City wished to extend the best practices put in place for the construction of public facilities to the building projects realised by private actors, whether in the field of energy, water and waste management, or biodiversity.
Since 2006, flagship measures were taken on the public facilities in Issy, with priority in the energy and water sector. Indeed, 3,500 m² of roofs terraces were planted (that is to say the equivalent of 18 tennis courts) and the installation of thermal and photovoltaic solar panels generated 38,620 kwh of electricity per year. Rainwater recovery will result in drinking water savings up to 250 m3 per day during the summer period for the watering of flowers in the municipal greenhouses. In order to share this momentum with the urban planning actors and developers contractors in Issy, the municipality decided to create a charter of environmental quality, called Isséo.
The municipality decided to formalise this will in a charter of environmental quality of buildings, addressed to real estate developers, builders and contractors working in Issy-les-Moulineaux. Drafted in a very participative context, the paper is a pragmatic, realistic and an innovative tool, whose purpose is to structure, guide and perpetuate the environmental quality of future construction projects (flats, offices, shops). This innovative charter offers the various construction actors the possibility to put into practice an environmental quality approach that can no longer be ignored.
Thanks to the innovation brought by ‘ISSEO’, Issy plans to contribute to the development of the Very High Environmental Quality (THQE) and at the same time bring solutions to the energy problem of the territory.
Sustainable development is a present theme in Issy-les-Moulineaux and all future buildings in Issy-les-Moulineaux will answer the most important issues defined by the Isséo Charter, as for example:
All these initiatives aim at reaching the ambitious goal set at the national level in terms of greenhouse gas reduction, energy efficiency and development of renewable energies.
