At SICE, we put the interests of our clients first to find the best solution that integrates technologies and systems, our own or third parties, that support their objectives and propel them towards the future. But we are also aware that innovation and progress must be accompanied by a sustainable perspective that puts people and the environment at the center. That is why we integrate sustainability into our business model, optimizing the performance of the resources used and promoting Sustainable Development.
Currently, sustainability encompasses a variety of trends ranging from the climate emergency to the digital transition, including mobility and social impact. And climate change will continue to increasingly affect current lifestyles. The pressure on natural resources and the environment is increasing, sometimes exceeding their capacity for regeneration or adaptation. But this is not the only challenge we face: technological acceleration poses new risks related to privacy and data protection every day, while opening up immense opportunities thanks to the development of artificial intelligence, among other advances.
Social inequality makes it essential to promote policies and offer guarantees of inclusion and integration, improving human rights in value chains and maintaining regional social cohesion. Social and demographic changes and the climate emergency have shifted the focus towards mobility: it is urgent to create sustainable mobility that resolves these emerging needs.
Environmental Protection is a fundamental value that we share with the Cobra IS Group and with the Vinci Group, to which we belong.
We seek to actively contribute to creating a better future, maximizing our positive impact on society and people’s well-being. Together, we work for environmental transformation through the optimization of resources and the preservation of natural environments. At SICE we believe that it is possible and necessary to develop our activity while minimizing its effects on the environment in all the countries where we operate. Therefore, we continually apply improvements to our processes to reduce their environmental impact.
The VINCI Group’s objective is to reduce direct emissions by 40% by 2030, developing solutions that accelerate the energy transition and promoting the circular economy and the preservation of natural environments. And in a context of climate emergency, the environment is a strategic priority for SICE.

As experts in mobility solutions, at SICE we are very concerned about optimizing their use in all areas to improve people’s quality of life and reduce the negative impact of transport on the environment. Therefore, both inside and outside the company (through Chairs and collaborations with research centers and universities), we promote research and development of innovative mobility solutions, which use new technologies and intelligent systems to optimize use. of resources.
