Joint interview: on the road to biodiversity
The development and maintenance of the road network have been associated with revegetation initiatives for forty years now. These practices are constantly changing to meet environmental challenges, but also to involve all project stakeholders, and to include other environmental issues such as carbon intensity reduction and the circular economy. In this interview we explore the current major trends and new prospects with Anaël Mayeur, PhD student at AgroParisTech working on the lab recherche environnement’s Research & Solutions programme, and Nicolas Durvaux, Végéneration project manager at VINCI Autoroutes, an initiative which won the VINCI Environment Award.
