Faced with the far-reaching changes to people’s ways of living and working and the urgent need to reduce its environmental impacts, the real estate sector is in the midst of a transformation. Icade is mobilising on all fronts to meet social, societal and environmental expectations. To offer relevant and creative solutions, we have chosen to work with our stakeholders to co-construct our property products and services. Together, we create value at every level and by doing so, we help to build cities that are more sustainable, more inclusive and more resilient and that bring real comfort and well-being to their users.

What is Icade doing to address the environmental, social and societal challenges of tomorrow?

Read the answer

« Icade’s CSR goals are a central part of its strategy. We have made ambitious commitments to reduce our carbon footprint and follow a 2°C or even 1.5°C pathway. Icade has set three environmental priorities with demanding goals—namely to facilitate low-carbon transition, promote biodiversity and support initiatives in favour of the circular economy. As Icade is also constantly attentive to its stakeholders’ needs, our objective is to offer our customers desirable places where they can live and work. To accomplish this, we co-develop innovative and sustainable real estate solutions and services. In addition, we contribute to local social and economic growth through initiatives promoting professional integration and diversity, local partnerships, community events and skills sponsorships. We have also initiated innovative programmes to attract top talent. Creating a stimulating, collaborative work environment, developing expertise, ensuring a healthy work-life balance and encouraging diversity are initiatives that we consider key to promoting the quality of working life. »

A dynamic CSR policy

Icade’s CSR policy is built around three areas: 

- low-carbon transition and preservation of resources;

- new habits and lifestyles and partnerships with local authorities and communities;

- employee skills development, workplace well-being and diversity.

Five priority issues have been identified by our internal and external stakeholders. Particular attention is paid to these issues in the CSR commitments set out in the 2019–2022 Plan:


CSR priority issues for Icade

One of the ways the CSR issues were prioritised was by analysing the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Icade has determined eight priority goals and five significant goals, which it is working hard to achieve. These relate to operational efficiency, developing new products and services, and engaging with society.
