Ten companies in the construction sector have formed an alliance to reduce the industry’s carbon footprint.  

The Community of Sustainable Equipment Players, or the Communauté des Acteurs du Matériel Durable (CAMD), is made up of Bouygues, Colas, Eiffage, Haulotte, JCB, Kiloutou, Manitou Group, NGE, Salti and Volvo.

They will follow five core principles, such as devising a common decarbonisation strategy, working to promote the cause of sustainability within the industry, and improving its image in the public eye.

CAMD is a non-profit company with a collegiate governance structure representing equipment hire companies, and building and civil engineering contractors.

Olivier Colleau, Kiloutou’s chief executive, is CAMD’s chair. He is flanked by Michel Denis, Manitou Group’s president, and Patrick N’Kodia, Bouygues Construction’s director of transformation.

The team will monitor regulatory developments and work alongside trade federations.
