  • improvement of the quality of life. 

Each category is divided into two sub-categories: 

  • internal (if you are an intern or work-study student in one of our businesses or subsidiaries) 

  • or external (if you have done your internship in another organization, or if you have not done an internship).

 

...WIN AN ELECTRIC BIKE AND ITS EQUIPMENT

Winner, you will leave with a bike (mechanical or electric) and its safety equipment that you can choose from the partner stores network of our operator Zenride, for a value of 1 800€.

→during the final year of a five-year university degree (European standard) ending in the 2020-2021 academic year

→fall into one of the 4 categories detailed below

►FIGHTING CLIMATE CHANGE

Imagining solutions that will make it possible to reduce CO2 emissions and the carbon impact of human activities, whether for industries or for territories: thinking about tomorrow's energy services, putting digital technology at the service of urban transformation, pooling the activities of industrial parks, developing tools for measuring and certifying the environment. Or how to reconcile productivity and reduction of the environmental footprint of industrial companies. 

Adapting our modes of production and living to better manage the impacts of global warming on populations and territories: continuity of water or waste management services in the face of natural disasters or climatic crises, crisis management to better preserve investments, reuse of wastewater in the face of water risk, energy resilience solutions.

 

►TREATING POLLUTION

Fighting against all forms of pollution by devising new solutions to treat water, soil and air pollution, as well as new and difficult types of pollution, such as plastic pollution, micro-pollutants and the treatment of hazardous waste.

 

►OPTIMIZING RESOURCES

Act on the entire water cycle to better protect and preserve the resource. Develop the smart city by relying on new technologies, artificial intelligence, data science and digital technology for better management, optimized monitoring and greater transparency of services in water, energy and or waste management. 

Wherever possible, implement circular economy loops to limit the consumption of resources, particularly in the management of household and industrial waste by optimizing sorting, recycling and transformation/reuse into new resources.

Developing energy efficiency solutions: green energy from sewage sludge, heating and cooling networks, energy efficiency in buildings, bio-waste management.

 

►IMPROVING QUALITY OF LIFE

Preparing for tomorrow's world by imagining solutions today in the areas of health, urban agriculture, urbanization and the preservation of biodiversity. 

Enabling everyone to benefit from essential services such as access to water and hygiene.

Contribute to the dynamics of the regions where we operate by working daily to create social links, by supporting start-ups and by putting consumers at the center of our thinking.
