Producing more and better

It is our shared challenge on the planet and one of the ambitions at the heart of InVivo’s strategy: to help all of our stakeholders enhance their capacity to produce more and better, by means of a wide range of innovative solutions improving economic, social and environmental performance and optimising our own environmental footprint.

This ambition is expressed by three commitments :

  • Deploy smart agriculture
  • Offer responsible solutions and assist our stakeholders
  • Optimise our environmental footprint to look for efficiency in our activities

A member of EpE since 2017, InVivo actively participates in working groups looking into critical  environmental issues: climate change, biodiversity, the circular economy and the bioeconomy.

In parallel to the biodiversity plan launched by the government, InVivo and 64 other companies have committed themselves to the Act4nature initiative sponsored by EpE and multiple partners.

InVivo’s 7 commitments include:

  • Increasing the R&D effort in order to maintain the biological quality of soil,
  • Development of the responsible range offered by Gamm Vert,
  • Construction by 2025 of pertinent indicators for tracking the progress of our activities,
  • Raising awareness among all employees of the importance of preserving biodiversity,
  • Examining the most effective solutions to massively reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

BiodiversiTerre event took place at the Place de la République on 2-5 June 2018.
After Avenue Foch had been pedestrianised in 2017, the plant-based and socially responsible work of the artist Gad Weil this time extended over some 20,000 m2 in the heart of Paris to promote the preservation of biodiversity, the circular economy and urban agriculture. Visitors were able to discover a giant model of a stretch of the A1 motorway transformed into a “Happy Vallée” : planted noise barriers, urban agriculture on roofs and wasteland and new plantations on neglected sections of motorway.

This ambitious project of the agro-ecological reconquest of the A1 is set to be extended over 20 km between Roissy and Paris by 2024, to bring about the emergence of a new model of sustainable city and community living. Created in 2017 by senior managers from InVivo, Paris and the firm of architects, Wilmotte, it is sponsored by the Happy Vallée association.

Three InVivo sites commit themselves to Ademe

Three InVivo Retail sites have committed themselves to the plan sponsored by the Ademe environmental and energy agency, designed to help SMEs and VSEs reduce costs: the Frais d’Ici store in Chenôve, Néodis Billaud Grains (specialist in feed for birds, rodents and farmyard animals) and Néodis La Braconne (manufacturer of biscuits for cats and dogs) in Mornac.

This Ademe programme targets establishments with between 20 and 250 employees.
It aims to analyse losses in terms of energy, materials and waste and to propose reduction action plans in order to make savings.
