The facility meets high sustainability standards, notably through the use of sustainable materials and renewable energy, as well as the installation of water and green spaces to promote biodiversity across the site. Built in Bailly-Romainvilliers and in Magny-le-hongre, Seine-et-Marne, Deloitte University EMEA stands out as a large-scale and innovative project within an urban and economic hub. 

The campus has been designed in collaboration with Dubuisson Architecture, as well as developer Nexity, and operator Châteauform.
