Supporting Local communities
Redevco is convinced that businesses have a broader responsibility to the communities in which they operate. Through the Redevco Foundation and by offering our employees a volunteering day per year, we have created an opportunity to ‘give back’ and go beyond ‘simply’ maximising our operational sustainability.
The Redevco Foundation enables us to support projects or initiatives in three categories:
- improving the lives and living environment of the less privileged;
- sustainability of the environment;
- historic and cultural heritage.
IMPACT ON SOCIETY
Our employees play an active role in proposing charities to support in the above mentioned categories with a preference for the cities where we operate. Each of these initiatives is intended to have some degree of positive societal, environmental or cultural impact for the respective stakeholder group that is targeted.
In addition, we encourage our employees to spend one day each year as a ‘volunteering day’ for the charitable organisation of their choice. This can be done with a team or individually. In 2017, a total of 72% of employees used their volunteering day.
Being involved in decisions on where the money is spent and the opportunity to spend one day doing volunteer work are highly appreciated by our employees and a source of great pride.
