Environment & Eco-responsibility

A global issue, affecting every area of civil life

Taking daily action to limit the impact of the Group's activities on climate change and the use of natural resources: this ambition unites all of the Group's subsidiaries, which innovate and mobilize, each in their own field, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, preserve biodiversity, and provide our clients with the means to address the environmental challenges that shape the future of our societies.

Aware of the current environmental challenges, Fayat implements concrete actions to reduce its impact on the planet and promote sustainable practices. The group incorporates ecological concerns into all of its activities.

Fayat recognizes that preserving biodiversity, promoting ecological engineering, encouraging eco-mobility, responsible water management, building sustainable cities, and promoting reuse are essential pillars of a comprehensive eco-responsibility strategy.

By combining technical expertise, innovation, and awareness, the Fayat group is committed to minimizing its environmental footprint, preserving ecosystems, promoting the efficient use of resources, and contributing to the transition to a greener economy.

Decarbonisation Fayat Fondations

In 2020, Fayat Foundations launched a programme to decarbonise its activities, based on 3 watchwords: count to know, know to act, and act to reduce. The aim is to join the path to reduction initiated by the Paris Climate Agreement. This programme consists not only of a transition plan and an annual carbon assessment® since 2020, but also a drive to enable staff to develop greater awareness of climate change, through tools such as the creation of their own Carbon Challenge game. 

Château Fayat, A green lung in the heart of the city. Established in 2009, Château Fayat is a vineyard consisting of 32 plots spread over 14 hectares, with the unique feature of being located in an urban environment, north of the city of Libourne, in the Pomerol appellation. This geographical location led its team, under the direction of Emeric Bossuet, to conduct a study of the existing ecosystem and to develop a comprehensive program aimed at both protecting the biodiversity present on the property and raising awareness among the entire neighborhood.


To support environmental attitude number 3 of the guide published by Razel-Bec for its employees, titled "Guide to 8 Environmental Attitudes," a notebook has been made available to employees on construction sites to protect sensitive environments and make this protection visible. Practical and illustrated, it enables teams to identify invasive species that can have a negative environmental impact and learn how to combat their spread.

Ecological engineering

Fayat is committed to ecological engineering by developing and implementing technical solutions to restore and preserve ecosystems.

The group develops innovative techniques, promotes ecosystem regeneration and conserves natural habitats.

Saving energy - Fayat Cleantech

Mathieu / Ravo designed an electric sweeper which tackles decarbonisation without compromising on performance. Each feature (aeraulic, electric, hydraulic or mechanical) and every element has been reviewed, optimised or replaced by technologies with a lower environmental impact. Examples include a stop & go system to reduce energy use, the installation of regenerative braking technology, and modernized vacuum technology. All these changes enable the use of a smaller battery, which is safer and results in reduced environmental impact and lower operating costs for the customer.

Le château de Beaucastel - Fayat Bâtiment

Fayat Bâtiment : renovation and extension of the estate located in the heart of the Quaternary Terrace, known as Châteauneuf du Pape. This unique project is characterized by the construction of authentic, distinctive, and contemporary buildings based on ancestral construction methods, within the framework of a "contemporary vernacular" architecture. The major challenge of this operation is the implementation of "site concrete" (hand-compacted dry concrete layer by layer) and the use of natural elements from the site.

Fayat promotes sustainable mobility by developing sustainable transportation solutions.

The group participates in the design and construction of infrastructure for public transportation, bicycle lanes, electric vehicle sharing systems, and other initiatives aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions associated with transportation.


Nova - Fareco: combining safety with innovative eco-design

Every step in the creation of the range has been designed to reduce environmental impact to a minimum, from the choice of raw materials to the product’s transport and end-of-life management. Less polluting, recyclable materials are used, the product weight has been reduced, and local suppliers are prioritised. In all, some 100 actions, certified by AFNOR in 2022, have been implemented to reduce environmental impact.
