For episode 3 of the seventh season of the Urban Chronicles™ devoted to the theme Climate Risk & Real Estate, we interviewed exclusively Guillaume Piton, Director of Ile-de-France Tertiary Promotion within the Icade Group.
Together, we discussed the major sustainability issues facing the Group and its strategies for adapting to climate change.
Initially addressed from a mitigation perspective (reduction of greenhouse gas emissions), climate change is now a reality that must be taken into account. Climate is becoming a relevant and unprecedented element of risk to which the real estate sector must adapt.

The French Social Security Institution (in French: Sécurité Sociale) is divided into five branches: Disease, Accidents at Work, Family, Retirement, and Contributions.
