Our environmental approach

Our environmental commitment is also reflected in the choice of installing our offices within the Darwin ecosystem, a rehabilitated urban wasteland and ecological transition laboratory. Within this ecosystem, businesses, non profits, sports, social and cultural associations cohabit and create innovative synergies. The space also hosts a grocery store providing local/organic products and the largest organic restaurant in France.

We are powered by renewable electricity and choose low carbon mobility for our trips. The energy consumption, the transportation modes and even the waste production of Darwin settlers are public and measured by a unique ecosystem tool, MIUSEEC.
