Build sustainable relationships
and well-being

Through its Purpose, Covivio expresses its role as a responsible real estate operator to all its stakeholders: customers, shareholders and financial partners, internal teams, local authorities but also to future generations and the planet.

Respond to major social, environmental and economic issues

Covivio has helped shape and develop major European gateway cities, building offices, hotels and housing for its customers. Through its new identity created in 2018, Covivio has strengthened its ambition to get even closer to customers for whom we produce space in which to work, travel and live. Covivio’s Board members and teams have decided to go a step further and express how we intend to contribute to major social, environmental and economic challenges by involving all our stakeholders.

"The concern we all shared was to successfully translate, in a simple and obvious way, the history of Covivio, our CSR commitments and our ambitious environmental and societal policy. In the end, the Purpose we express perfectly reflects the philosophy of Covivio and its values, focused primarily on building relations of trust with internal and external stakeholders whilst fully integrating our actions into the environmental and societal processes we have engaged."

Christian Delaire, member of the Board of Covivio

"The point of working on Covivio's Purpose very quickly met with a consensus among Board members. Adopting a Purpose is effectively the assurance of being able to fight, whatever the circumstances, the worst temptation facing a listed real estate company, namely the short-term. Our business requires to take a step back and a long-term vision. It also demands meaningfulness and coherence. Covivio's Purpose is all that and more: an unchanging course that must guide all our decisions and all our actions."

"The Board of Directors has worked with Covivio's teams not only to declare our Purpose but also to assert our concrete ambitions with all our stakeholders. This Purpose will shape our development. I am counting on our clients and partners to carry on inspiring and challenging us to meet all present and future challenges, and on our teams to instill real life into this purpose in their day-to-day work."

Christophe Kullmann, Covivio Chief Executive Officer

"After adopting our European identity in 2018, we wanted to go a step further and take a stance in the face of today's social, environmental and economic issues. Formally setting out our Purpose is the opportunity to assert our ambitions with stakeholders, presenting concrete objectives reviewed on a regular basis."
