Additional Details

At the heart of innovation IntenCity is Schneider Electric’s new flagship building located in the Scientific Polygon (Presqu’île) of Grenoble. It is a building of 26,000 m² and is exemplary in many aspects. It is part of a vast project of reorganizing Schneider Electric’s facilities in the city of Grenoble which began in 2016. It’s objective: to regroup around 5,000 workers spread out over 13 different sites into 4 major buildings.The aim was to reduce the group’s carbon footprint, by choosing environmental-friendly buildings, reducing inter-site travel, by strengthening cross-department team collaboration as well as with public and private sector organizations in the area such as R&D, Universities and laboratories. An operating model based on a partnership which is now essential to amplify innovation and development.

Lessons Learnt 

Reducing its CO2 footprint With this new organization in the Grenoble region, Schneider Electric confirms its commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emission in line with Grenoble’s Air Energy Climate Plan.

• By bringing teams together to a reduced number of sites limiting inter-site travel. • By providing electric vehicles for workers to use when travel is necessary.

• By inciting workers to use sustainable transport methods.

• By giving priority to high energy-performing buildings by removing 15% of the floor space occupied in the Grenoble hub, demolishing and disposing of 60,000 m2 of old and energy consuming buildings, and the construction of 43,000 m2 of high energy performing buildings (IntenCity and Technopole).
