BOULOGNE-BILLANCOURT, France, October 18, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
Carmila (Paris:CARM), has once again picked up two EPRA* Gold Awards, as well as climbing to the top of the GRESB** rankings in the Development Component.
For the fourth year running, EPRA has recognised Carmila for its commitment to transparency in financial reporting, with a Gold BPR Award. This distinction is all the more impressive given that a more stringent EPRA methodology was introduced this year for the 181 property companies surveyed.
Carmila was also awarded a Gold sBPR for the second time, in recognition of its alignment with the highest sustainability reporting standards. This prize shines a spotlight on Carmila’s efforts as part of its CSR strategy to promote the values of proximity and transparency with all stakeholders – employees, customers, retailers, tenants, investors, partners and society at large.
In addition, the results of the GRESB 2021 international benchmark reflect the progress Carmila has made in its CSR strategy, which was ranked number one in the Development Component among its listed commercial property company peers with a score 94/100. In the Performance Component, Carmila improved on its last assessment by four points, earning a score of 84/100.
"The EPRA and GRESB awards confirm the ambition of Carmila CSR strategy, "Here we act", which is organised around three pillars: climate action, support for local regions and employee engagement," commented Marie Cheval, Chair and Chief Executive Officer of Carmila.
