Our environmental commitments

As a responsible player in the Real Estate sector, we are committed to reducing our environmental impact.

Our activities positively impact the environment through energy-efficient renovations and densification projects, contributing to a significant reduction in CO2 emissions.

Despite not being obligated, we voluntarily align with the European Taxonomy, focusing on the Paris Agreement's environmental criteria.

In 2023, we also decided to calculate our positive impact on the environment, through an "avoided carbon" calculation, which estimates that the carbon normally emitted in 2023 was divided by 3 thanks to the densification and energy renovation works carried out by Colonies.

Our social commitments

Make housing more accessible

Today the housing renting market is very tense, and it is more and more difficult for a young adult to find an accommodation. By densifying, and converting office buildings into residential solutions, we contribute to expanding the market to help students and young professionals to find their dream accommodation.

More than just a furnished flat

The current housing market doesn't fit young people’s needs. We aim to provide more than just a simple furnished flat by designing our spaces carefully with the tenant in mind. Whether they prefer living in a community or on their own, we prioritize their needs to offer them a valuable living experience with a convenient all-inclusive package and a fully digital booking process.

Our governance commitments

Equality policy and employee development

Because the ones who work for us are the very reason of our success, it is important we provide a fair environment where everyone can grow and develop regardless of their gender, age or origins. All our employees can now have access to trainings to develop personal and professional knowledge. A reward policy has been put in place in 2023 to make sure everyone is rewarded fairly.

Our Gender Equality index is 85/100.
We have a commitment to reach 95/100 in 2025.

Corporate ethics

Corporate ethics is important for us, as we want to conduct our business fairly, respecting the one who work for us or with us. We conduct a supplier risk analysis each year, and request to our most significant suppliers to prove they are conducting business in a fair and legal way, especially with their sub-contractors. We trained all our employees on anti-corruption practices, to make sure we recognise and adress all problems related to this.

100% of our employees trained in anti-corruption.

TESTIMONY

"After taking part in la Fresque du Climat, I realized the extent of our impact on the environment. It's a brutal realization of the magnitudes involved, which raises questions about our daily actions and pushes us to rethink the way we live and work for our own well-being, and that of our planet."

Alexandre Ferreira, participant of the Fresque du Climat
