Investing in communities

Have a meaningful and sustainable impact on communities

Our properties contribute to local vitality, and the direct and indirect benefits of our activities drive prosperity and enhance societal well-being. We also foster the engagement of our employees and support non-profit organizations, with the goal of having a lasting and significant impact on the communities we serve.

Contribute to community prosperity and well-being

In addition to caring about the current and future needs of the users of our living spaces, we are a leading economic player, investing with conviction in the life of the communities where we operate.

Support organizations in our communities

Making a positive impact by giving back to our communities is in line with our corporate values. We are committed to reinvesting in the community by supporting a number of not-for-profit organizations where we are present, based on a donation and sponsorship policy.

Supporting employee engagement

It is also important for us to give our employees the opportunity to be involved personally in causes they take to heart. Investing in an internal mobility program and encouraging employees to get involved in causes that are near and dear to their heart are two of the ways we achieve this objective.
