CSR at Nexity

Create value and be useful to society by means of the group's business activities

The Group’s CSR approach is underpinned by the desire to provide concrete responses to major social and environmental issues (demography, urbanization, climate change) to propose products and services to promote, among others: access to housing, the emergence of the sharing economy, the digitisation of exchanges and energy efficiency renovation works.

This approach is translated internally into putting in place a responsible governance system and a responsible human resources strategy.

The four pillars of our CSR policy:

 

 

The CSR is integrated in Nexity’s strategy and is translated into practice by the direct connection of the CSR department to the Group’s Executive Committee.

Others strong signs of the full integration of CSR issues in the Group:

  • The participation of the CSR Director, Valérie De Robillard, to the Nexity 2020 Transformation Committee,
  • The board added CSR to the remit of the Remuneration and Appointments Committee,
  • The CSR Department has officers within the main business lines.

The CSR Department conducts 3 main duties:

  1. Establishing a formal CSR approach and consolidating performance,
  2. Supporting the CSR efforts of subsidiaries for responses to consultations and tenders,
  3. Identification, operational management and dissemination within the Group of innovations offering social or environmental added value.
 

Player of responsible real estate, Nexity goes even further in its commitment to participate in think tanks and working groups on CSR issues (C3D, OID, APC, BBCA association, AFNOR, AFEP on the circular economy, etc.).

The commitment to citizens and society of the Nexity’s Group embodies also through the initiatives undertaken by the Nexity Foundation that is committed in particular to combating poor housing, getting as close as possible to the people concerned and perpetuates philanthropic efforts to make housing increasingly accessible.
