NRE environmental indicators 2006 Comments

5. use of renewable energy sources Part of the Group’s electricity in France is supplied by an operator who is

contractually obliged to provide 15% renewable energy.

In Canada, 100% of the electricity used by the Group is renewable, as is

18% of the energy used by BNP Paribas Frankfurt and Cortal Consors in

Germany.

6. Land use For each project, Meunier Habitat appoints a specialised consulting firm

to carry out a diagnostic review of the extent of the soil contamination.

The consultants define the specifications for a soil identification programme,

contamination studies are performed using tests and analyses,

and a soil report is drawn up. Meunier Habitat uses this report to carry out

any remediation work required to ensure that the soil meets all applicable

regulatory standards.

In addition to these initiatives, the Group applies “environmental housing”

certification provisions to certain Meunier Habitat programmes. These mainly

concern the management of pollution-related problems with a view

to meeting the objectives required in terms of health, ecological balance

and comfort of use.

Klépierre systematically assesses its environmental impact when building

new shopping centres. In Aubervilliers, the construction site and the

operating plans for the future shopping centre meet HEQ criteria regarding

land remediation, groundwater preservation, water quality and waste

management.

In 2006, this subsidiary installed new tools, such as multiple distributed

water meters, in its shopping centres in order to improve the management

of water, energy and fluid consumption.
