Banque Populaire Atlantique and LIPPI support the Connected Environments research through design Chair as part of their sponsorship policy. These two structures have understood the benefits of working with L’École de design Nantes Atlantique and thereby support research in a domain, the intelligent relationship between objects and environments that will change uses in the coming years and reveal new economic fields.
In keeping with its cooperative values, the Banque Populaire Atlantique is actively involved in the economic development of its territory by creating long-term initiatives. To do this, it draws on a network of 176 branches in Morbihan, South Finistère, Loire-Atlantique, Vendée and Maine et Loire.
The Banque Populaire Atlantique also opened its first 2.0 branch in the heart of the Nantes university campus in October 2013. Its goal: to respond appropriately to the mobility of some of its customers without neglecting the "physical" welcome. The Nantes Facultés branch thus offers total freedom to each of its customers in the choice of communication channel with their advisor: "physical" meetings, e-mail, telephone, and especially video conferencing. A first step towards connected environments!
As for the Banque Populaire Atlantique, innovation also involves sustainable development since it obtained the Lucie label in January 2012, which was renewed in September 2013. This French label, awarded to a bank for the first time, is based on the ISO 26 000 standard, the new international standard for social responsibility. The company’s CSR policy is therefore publicly recognised.
Founded in 1963, LIPPI is a family business that specialises in the manufacture and marketing of fences, fencing and gates intended for private individuals (residential or multifamily housing), professionals (commercial and industrial buildings, sensitive sites, etc.) and local authorities (sports facilities, roads and infrastructure).
In 50 years, LIPPI has gone through different stages of growth to become the second largest French manufacturer in the fencing market, employing 230 people and generating a turnover of €38 million before tax.
