Challenging and supporting suppliers through the Covivio CSR policy
Since 2011, Covivio has had a responsible purchasing policy, based on three tools: a Responsible Procurement Charter, CSR clauses included in its contracts, and a survey questionnaire on suppliers’ CSR practices. The Charter permanently covers over 80% of expenses.

Promoting equal opportunity
Since 2015, Covivio has been committed to the Article 1 Association in skills development and financial sponsorship initiatives, focusing on solidarity and equal opportunity for young students from low-income backgrounds. Internally, Covivio also has several mentors who coach these young people during their university studies. The group also supports the development of student housing. Covivio also signed the Soft Skills Manifesto June 2020.
Biodiversity is a major issue for the entire real estate chain and the construction industry. It is a strong marker of the group’s CSR policy. Covivio is therefore striving to make each of its sites a driver for protecting biodiversity. Covivio has also defined European biodiversity guidelines for its various portfolios to better integrate its sites into their environment. See more.
