The RATP Group engages in a great deal of industrial activity (train and bus maintenance) and coordinates infrastructure construction projects in a dense urban environment. It does all it can to limit the environmental impact of these activities (waste production, industrial waste, energy and water consumption).
RATP has embarked upon environmental management initiatives in an effort to reduce its environmental impacts and control environmental risks at its sites. It is committed to obtaining ISO 14001 certification for its industrial sites by the end of 2010.
RATP is striving to reduce water consumption at all its sites. The renewal of equipment, which began some ten years ago, is generating considerable savings:
RATP is also reducing its use of paper and consumables.
The operation and maintenance of trains and buses generate industrial waste. This is sorted into categories (metals, wood, tyres, etc.) in accordance with environmental legislation, and recycled or reused to optimum effect. RATP is now also aiming for significant waste reduction at source.
Several thousand tonnes of waste are also produced annually in stations. Since 2006, selective sorting has been in place in some parts of the network: specifically line 14 of the metro, Denfert-Rochereau station, the T3 tram line, and Bourg-la-Reine and Chessy RER stations. RATP wants to extend selective sorting across its networks in the next few years.
