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.

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.
In 2020, most of our volunteering activities were put on hold because of the pandemic. We remained present in the community in converting the volunteering hours of our employees into more than $50,000 donations to charities to support their initiatives.
