As you have might have noticed, the “Union des Caisses nationales de la Sécurité sociale” (UCANSS) and Green Soluce launched the Impulsion2021 programme on September 10, 2019 to support the Social Security and its agencies in the energy transition of their housing stock, and encourage the choice of innovative solutions to accelerate its transformation !
Nowadays co-living has become more popular with new generations and its impact on social behavior is well recognized by people. But, what about its impact on urban sustainability? Is this sharing space trend also helping the planet? How can sharing space be an asset towards a more sustainable city?
Among the types of data collected, priority is often given to financial, customer or production data. At the same time, environmental, social and governance (ESG) data are becoming increasingly important in corporate CSR reporting to measure carbon emissions and energy consumption, particularly for real estate.
New regulations, such as the Tertiary Decree (French law requiring companies to reduce CO2 emissions), new international reporting frameworks, such as the Sustainable Development Objectives (SDOs), or a trend for companies to create their impact reports, make this data increasingly relevant.
Social housing represents about 19% of the French housing stock. Social landlords are therefore major players in the transition towards more sustainable real estate. Chroniques Urbaines™ met Romain Dubois, CEO of ICF Habitat group, and Patrick Jeanselme, Chairman of the Board of ICF Habitat La Sablière and head of the group’s CSR project.They enlightened us on the integration of biodiversity in social housing and its particular role as a lever for social inclusion and empowerment.
In terms of numeric innovation, it’s been a few years since we hear a lot about “blockchain” and its applications. Today, in Urban ChroniclesTM, you will learn more about it, and especially what opportunities it gives to the ecological transition of our cities.
What if work-related pathologies (such as burn-out, a major personal and professional crisis of the 21st century, often unacknowledged, hidden or even minimized in our societies) find their source, and finally their solutions in the current work organization and associated mobility? Let’s take a look at the phenomenon !
From now on till 2030, 195 countries who signed 17 sustainable development goals (SDG) are mobilizing for the planet in finding sustainable solutions to reduce their carbon footprint.
What roles do the actors of the cities of tomorrow embody, in order to reach these objectives ?
For this interview, Patrick Nossent, Certivéa’s president and Ella Etienne-Denoy, General director and associates of Green Soluce, spoke to Chroniques Urbaines to warn on the necessity of urban development projects to take into their field of action the SDGs decided by the UN.

The transition to “service-oriented” mobility is one of the major developments in mobility and transport at work nowadays. The MaaS (Mobility as a Service), which CEREMA defines as “an integrated system offering information, reservation, purchase and validation, for the widest possible range of mobility services”, is part of this transition. There are now about fifteen MaaS applications in Europe, a growing phenomenon, particularly in large urban areas. But beyond the concept, what reality can the MaaS cover in the field?
To find out more, Chroniques Urbaines met Denis Rambaud, Vice-President of Mulhouse Alsace Agglomération in charge of transport and mobility, who shared with us his feedback on the Mobility Account, a pioneering MaaS initiative in France launched in 2018.
The transport strike at the end of 2019 led to the emergence of alternatives to the car and the usual means of transport, and initiatives are multiplying to ensure that people can travel from home to work. This strike allows us to question our resilience in the face of the transport stoppage and to bring out new low-carbon solutions, which ones?
