Covivio wins the “Sponsorship & Community Solidarity” award in the “Societal Commitment” category
Committing to greater equality of opportunity
Covivio established its Foundation in 2020, which, in line with its Purpose to “Build sustainable relationships and well-being”, responds to the company’s wish to play a more active role in urban life in order to help people live better together.
Through its Foundation, Covivio supports non-profits working to improve equal opportunities in France, Germany and Italy, through access to education and training, access to employment, access to housing, support for integration, social inclusion and the reintegration of vulnerable populations
The Foundation currently supports around twenty non-profits over periods ranging from one to three years through calls for projects to offer practical support and long-term guidance.
21 non-profits supported in 2023
Committed employees in Europe
Through its Foundation, Covivio also aims to encourage the commitment of its European employees by involving them as much as possible in joint projects or skills sponsorship workshops. To achieve this, Covivio has organised the annual Socovivio Week in France and Italy since 2022 to encourage team involvement. And the challenge has been met, with over 200 employees taking part in 2023, contributing a total of 900 hours of volunteering across ten non-profits and 26 missions.
Moreover, Covivio employees have eight working hours off each year during which they can take part in a solidarity initiative of their choosing.
In the future, the Covivio Foundation intends to continue to offer comprehensive support to its partner non-profit organisations, to link its action ever more closely to its business and portfolio through targeted initiatives, and finally, to make it even easier for its teams in Europe to participate
It is an honour to receive this award recognising the commitments and initiatives of the Covivio Foundation, which currently supports over 20 non-profits across Europe. This award also highlights the commitment of Covivio’s German, French and Italian employees who work closely alongside non-profits. It will inspire us to go even further and to continue our commitment to equal opportunities, a cause that Covivio holds dear.”Alix d’Ocagne, Chairwoman of the Board of Covivio Foundation
