This study takes a deep look into the IntenCity building, Schneider Electric’s new flagship building located in the Scientific Polygon of Grenoble, France. Through an in-depth Whole Life Cycle Analysis of the building, Schneider Electric highlights that the cumulated carbon footprint of IntenCity is 5 times less than an average European building on a 60-year life with less than 5% of its total cumulated carbon emissions coming from operations. The report also examines the positive contributions of IntenCity at the district level, as well as on the decarbonization journey of a Schneider Electric employee. Last but not least, it demonstrates that decarbonization does not come anymore with a cost penalty.
