In terms of the order intake for the year, the situation is quite good!

  • We have to make €675 million of order intakes over the year (to end of March 2022).
  • We are halfway through the year and at nearly €400m, which is very reassuring.
  • Special kudos to Italy, which has €140m of order intakes to date! Bravo!
  • Congratulations also to GSE France, which will be close to €100m by the end of September.
  • What is all the more reassuring is that we have several very large deals ahead, both in terms of number and of size… We have never been in this situation before.
  • We can therefore be confident… but being confident does not mean letting our guard down…
  • Our competitors are more aggressive than ever. Their sales and technical teams are keeping their eyes wide open, on the lookout for each of our deals. We don’t let go of anything… We put our heart and soul into each deal… Because the Must-Win Spirit is with us more than ever.

Eco-friendly buildings


Why adopt an environmentally responsible building programme? To:

  • Anticipate future regulations
  • Meet our clients’ expectations
  • Increase the entire company’s skills in environmental matters
  • Complete the current certifications and labels


How should we apply it?

  • Create a new commercial offering tailored to each client
  • 5 environmental topics, each with 3 levels of options:

1/ Energy performance

2/ Low carbon

3/ Biodiversity

4/ Enhanced interior comfort

5/ Low-impact construction site


  • Dedicated tools for each stage of the project, from the sales phase to construction:

o For sales teams: presentation materials, brochures and via Jack-In-The-Box and GSE World

o For design teams: integration of additional functionalities – particularly carbon analysis – into existing tools

o For the construction teams: simplified management and monitoring tools on site

o For the entire company: explanatory factsheets, training, to understand the challenges of eco-responsible buildings today and tomorrow



We’ll launch the tools dedicated to the sales and design phases in late 2021, the other tools in the first quarter of 2022. In the meantime, tailored support can be obtained by contacting the Sustainable Building team directly.
