Our mission is to host and sustainably accommodate economic activities within the logistics and industrial sector that are essential to everyone’s everyday life. We design projects that will take root in an area and then produce fruits that will benefit everyone. Through our projects, we strive to share economic success, serving everyone and benefitting entire regions.
In response to the climate emergency, at BARJANE we are committed to reducing the emissions from our activities throughout the life cycle of our projects and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We are working specifically on the bio-climatic design of buildings, controlling the carbon impact of construction, imposing and monitoring our Green Building Charter. We optimise the energy performance of our sites by developing alternative heating systems, installing widespread LED lighting and consumption monitoring, as well as offering our customers sustainable mobility solutions (ENGIE NGV station, electric charging stations, bicycle shelters).
We develop buildings that are workplaces for thousands of employees. It is therefore essential we design welcoming, healthy and comfortable working environments for every person present on each site. Maximising natural light, wooden frames, health-friendly materials, acoustic, thermal, and lighting comfort, outdoor relaxation areas, sports facilities and shared vegetable gardens are all measures that ensure that our logistics and industrial assets are fully certified.
In 2010 we made the choice to fully commit to the production of renewable energy. The roof of a building is normally an unused surface, but we see it is an opportunity for the creation of a renewable energy source without impacting the land. To date, the Group has installed more than 20 MWp, which is equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of a population of 13,000. With more than 12 years of experience in this field, we have become the leading producer of photovoltaic energy on the roofs of logistics buildings in France and manage power plant projects from start to finish: design, construction, and ongoing management.
We are increasing our commitment to land conservation by targeting its effective use and limiting urban sprawl. Following the transformation of an industrial wasteland into a logistics platform in Ollainville, and the regeneration of a highly polluted area into a sustainable logistics park in Ensuès-la-Redonne, we are now developing a new land strategy. We aim to seek out wasteland and optimises the building potential of each site with high-rise buildings, multi-storey buildings, silo parking, and other measures.
We prioritise the landscape design of our sites from the very first sketches to provide a careful choice of plants and diversity of landscaping, including multi-strata hedges, flower meadows, fruit trees, aromatic plants and melliferous species. We also provide alternative treatment of rainwater, wildlife shelters and ecological management of green spaces. We are committed to creating and maintaining habitats that encourage biodiversity and assessing the impact of the actions implemented through regular monitoring of the species present.
The development of cultural and sports projects at a local community level through supporting exhibitions, cultural events, sports clubs and teams.
In 2016, our team rescued a Bonelli’s eagle - one of the most endangered species of raptors, that had strayed near the offices. Since this encounter, the BARJANE Corporate Foundation has been working alongside the Conservatoire d’Espaces Naturels de Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur to preserve the species by financing census and awareness-raising operations incuding: exhibitions, life-size models, ringing, population monitoring.
Each year the BARJANE Corporate Foundation is pleased to welcome the children from the nearby town of Les Arcs-sur-Argens to the Parc des Bréguières to raise awareness about the importance of protecting biodiversity and natural ecosystems. Led by BARJANE employees, the children discover the biodiversity present including the observation of bees through the Park’s educational apiary and the creation of bird feeders.
We support the annual festival in Châteauneuf-le-Rouge, which brings together some of the region’s starred professional chefs in the central square to make Provencal gastronomy accessible to all.
La Fondation d’Entreprise BARJANE soutient l’École Comestible, un projet associatif qui fait entrer l'éducation alimentaire "de la graine au compost" dans les écoles.
L'association organise des ateliers de découvertes sensorielles, culturelles et culinaires afin de sensibiliser les enfants au bien-manger et leur permettre d'apprendre en expérimentant.The BARJANE Corporate Foundation supports the work of the ‘Edible School’, an associative project that brings food education ‘from seed to compost’ into schools. The association organises sensory, cultural and culinary discovery workshops to raise children’s awareness of eating well and to enable them to learn by experimenting.
The Foundation supports Nicolas Savant-Aira, a high-level table tennis athlete and logistics professional. He began his career in 2003, in a parasport club, as part of the French Para Table-Tennis team. Today he is a 12-time French Champion, 5-time European Champion and won bronze medals at the London and Tokyo Paralympic Games. Since 2017 we have also partnered the Draguignan Rugby Club youth which helps children discover the sport and its values of integrity, teamwork, discipline, and respect.
We have developed a biodiversity garden in partnership with the Emanuel School in London, and its “Primary Ambitions” programme to invite local schools lacking infrastructure to benefit from its own. The aim is to teach children the importance of respecting biodiversity through shared science and photography activities. It includes facilities and installations that encourage the development of local flora and fauna including: a field flower meadow, a small pond, piles of wood and rocks, an insect hotel, bird shelters and 2 beehives.
