Environmental policy

Thanks to its ISO 14001 certification, Paris Nord 2 is recognised for the implementation of its Environmental Management System.

Sustainable commitments and innovative solutions aim to ensure the quality of the working environment for the employees and at the same time preserve the environment

  • Soft transport
  • Collective and sustainable waste management
  • Protection of water resources and biodiversity
  • Processing and recycling of green waste
  • Commitment to renewable energy,…

The Management Centre is ever conscious of the park’s future in sustainable terms and commits to a responsible future.

Paris Nord 2 has many green spaces which promote the development of flora and fauna.

The Management Centre performed a study on the environment with regard to management of the green spaces and the protection of biodiversity.


Survey of the spaces and analysis of the management methods

The survey of almost 95% of the flora and fauna brought detailed information on the species present in the Park.

We then analysed our methods of maintaining these spaces in order to make improvements.


Actions on the ground

In this context, we developed a partnership with the “Lycée professionnel” Fénelon and the General Council of Seine-Saint-Denis.

A trail was created in order to explain to employees and visitors our actions promoting biodiversity: hives, insect hotels, flowered meadow, vegetated geomesh in the pool.

By using new forms of management and organisation, the Park employees can live together with a larger variety of natural diversity, ensuring a pleasant working environment.

Pilot site

Pilot site for biodiversity in Seine-Saint-Denis

Paris Nord 2  is associated with the Lycée du Paysage et de l’Environnement Fénelon [Landscape and Environment Lycée] in Vaujours, as well as the Nature, Landscape and Biodiversity  Department of the Departmental Council of Seine-Saint-Denis, for the enhancement and respectful management of the green spaces.

The students of the lycée designed and realised from A to Z a flowered meadow (between the A1 and the commercial zone) and an insect hotel (in the wood).

In 2013, in the framework of a tender for projects for the national biodiversity strategy, Paris Nord 2 became a pilot site for the departmental project: “The green and blue belt in Seine-Saint-Denis: from scientific reality to operational adaptations”.

The actions implemented to promote biodiversity in the Park are the object of technical data-sheets to be used as a reference for other activity parks.


Open orchard


An open orchard was planted in 2013 behind the sports club in rue de l’Etang.

To design this orchard, the students of the second year of the Agricultural Higher Technical Certificate (elective: Countryside Landscaping) gave free rein to their creativity while rendering work of a very high technical quality.  Three plans were selected among the twenty of dossiers which were drawn up.

Waste management

Environment – Partnership with Veolia Propreté Île-de-France

Collective and sustainable waste managementParis Nord 2

Paris Nord 2 and Veolia Propreté Île-de-France went into partnership to offer the companies in the park a collective waste collection and processing service.  More than a third of the waste managers of the Park now benefit from this partnership, which has multiple aims:

  • Reduce the Park’s environmental footprint,
  • Reduce management costs
  • Guarantee service which is compliant with the regulations
  •  Inform and raise awareness among the companies on collection methods, recycling, etc., and propose innovative solutions.

This collaboration is thus fully integrated in the environmental approach of Paris Nord 2. It was launched in 2009 with ISO 14001 certification.

Water management

The park is supplied by the network of the Syndicat des Eaux (Water Union) of Tremblay-en-France – Claye Souilly. This improvement is being implemented using two reservoirs of 3,000 m3 and the water is transported to the Park using piped with diameters of  Ø900, Ø800 and Ø700 mm. The average test results (physico-chemical and microbiological) of the analyses of the Park’s water are compliant with the regulations. Each year, a little over 2 million meters cubed of water transits through the park’s networks.

Renovation of the networks
To prevent the risk of flooding in the Park, 
Paris Nord 2 renovated its sewage systems (storm water and wastewater), and every year a televised inspection is carried out.


Prreserving drinking water resources 
In order to quantitatively manage the drinking water supply network Paris Nord 2 also called upon Veolia Eau for the installation of remote water meter readers.


Combining radio and internet technology, this facility brings instant information on drinking water consumption.  This system, placed on the meter, permanently records the volume of consumption and communicates them by radio waves to a sensor.  This information is then relayed via internet to the data processing centre of Veolia Eau and then made available to its customers.


Paris Nord 2 - veolia eau

This system therefore contributes to the preservation of our water resources. Thanks to remote reading, it is possible to identify and rehabilitate “sensitive points” (loss zones) of the network. This collaboration is thus fully integrated in the environmental approach of Paris Nord 2. It was launched in 2009 with ISO 14001 certification.

It also makes Paris Nord 2 the first business park equipped with a remote reading system.

Online monitoring of water consumption
As an owner in
 Paris Nord 2, you can monitor your water consumption and receive an alert in the event of an abnormality.  To benefit from this free service, you simply need to create your account at: www.veoliaeau.fr

Electromagnetic fields

Paris Nord 2

Electromagnetic fields are part of our daily environment but we cannot directly sense them.

We are indeed exposed to “natural” low frequency electromagnetic fields, such  as the atmosphere of the earth’s magnetic field, as well as electric or magnetic fields linked to human activity. These originate from devices which run on electricity, or those used to transport it, and are increased by technological progress;

Electromagnetic fields are thus part of our environment but we cannot directly sense them.

In terms of legislation, the actions of the European Union regarding electromagnetic fields is based on recommendation  1999/519/EC of the Council of 12 July 1999. The latter lays down basic restrictions and baseline levels. It uses the same values advocated in 1998 by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP).

Paris Nord 2 is exemplary
The management centre of 
Paris Nord 2 regularly carries out tests and relies on the expertise of the independent firm AExpertise.


According to the measurement ANFR/DR15 of the National Frequency Agency in force, the measurements are performed at multiple points with a wide-band isotropic probe, in order to identify the most sensitive zones.  Then the contribution of each frequency range is analysed (FM, mobile telephony, TV, radars, etc.) with respect to the total measures at the sensitive points previously identified.

For the mobile phone transmitters (the service with the largest identified fields) the total field is 1.71 V/m, i.e. 16.4 times lower than the regulatory threshold of exposure (28 V/m).

The employees of Paris Nord 2 can therefore work and circulate with their minds at ease. The regulatory exposure limits are respected to a huge degree.

What is an electromagnetic field?

This concept explains the influence which an object can exercise on its environment from a distance. Gravity, for example, explains the attraction which the Earth exercises on living beings and the objects located within its orbit. In the domain of electricity, we distinguish two types of field: - electrical fields linked to voltage This exists when a device is connected to an electrical current. Measured in volts per meter (V/M), it diminished with distance and may be strongly reduced by obstacles (trees, walls, etc.) - The magnetic field linked to the movement of electrical loads. This exists when a device is connected to an electrical current and operational. Measures is Teslas (T), it diminishes almost solely with distance. The combination of the two fields is the “electromagnetic” field.
