SPIE permet à RCI Banque d’obtenir la certification Breeam in Use pour son siège parisien

SPIE helps RCI Banque obtain Breeam in Use certification for its Paris headquarters

Published on 15 June 2023

Saint-Denis, 15 June 2023 - SPIE Facilities, a subsidiary of SPIE France specializing in building maintenance and facility management throughout France, is committed to more rational use of energy in the operation of its customers' buildings. SPIE Facilities' teams worked with RCI Banque, a subsidiary of the international Renault group specializing in financing, insurance, and services for the group's brands, to obtain Breeam in Use "very good" certification.


In 2018, RCI Banque decided to relocate its head office and operations to a 7,568 sq. m. building in central Paris, giving it a more modern and collaborative workspace.

As part of this relocation and an environmental certification strategy, RCI Banque decided to call on the expertise of SPIE Facilities, part of the SPIE group, the European independant leader in multi-technical services in the energy and communications sectors. Starting in September 2022, SPIE Facilities teams supported RCI Banque throughout the Breeam in Use certification process, for a period of 6 months. This involved site visits, an audit and a feasibility study, leading to the design and implementation of an action plan with weekly monitoring. The action plan includes monitoring energy consumption, maintenance waste and equipment changes. As a result of the action plan deployed, the building was awarded "very good" certification on 11 April 2023, with a score of 62.9% for asset performance and 59.1% for management performance.

Thanks to the support and expertise of SPIE Facilities, RCI Banque has taken a major step forward in its strategy to obtain environmental certification for its assets at the highest possible levels under the Breeam in Use standard.

Since obtaining certification, SPIE Facilities teams have continued to support RCI Banque to monitor developments at the site. In December 2023, a visit will be made to the premises to carry out a review of the certification assessment.

"We are delighted to have been able to support the RCI Banque teams in obtaining this first Breeam in Use certification for their Paris head office. The work carried out by the SPIE Facilities teams, from the initial site visit to the deployment of the action plan, has enabled us to develop tailor-made solutions that meet the highest standards of environmental excellence," says Sophie Delaitre, CSR Manager for SPIE Facilities.

"Obtaining Breeam In Use certification illustrates our ambition in terms of sustainable development. This certification consolidates our position internationally as one of the best sites classified by BRE, which recognises the comfort and well-being of our employees, rewards our efforts in terms of sustainable development and enhances our image with our customers and suppliers, while complying with the Green Bond eligibility criteria. Over the next few months, we will be pursuing this environmental approach in order to build on our achievements with the support of SPIE Facilities," says Olivier Chagnou - Director of Facilities and HR Projects for RCI Banque SA.
