Responsible retail offering

As a landlord, Mercialys is a close partner working alongside its tenants, and is committed to cooperating with them within a balanced, long-term relationship.

2030 goal

 
 
100% of our tenants engaged in our “responsible landlord tenant” commitments

How we will achieve this by 2030

  • 100% of leases signed including environmental clauses
  • 100% of tenants committed to reporting their key environmental data
  • 100% of tenants with access to contacts for CSR aspects
  • 100% of tenants offered initiatives around environmental, societal or business stakes
  • 100% of tenants covered by an annual satisfaction survey

Our main achievements

Sharing with retailers: Since 2013, Mercialys has included its environmental clause in all of its new leases, from the first square meter (excluding leases for less than one year). For the concrete implementation of these clauses, meetings are organized with retailers each year to monitor key performance indicators, such as the center’s energy consumption. 

 

Working with retailers: Mercialys has daily exchanges with its tenant retailers, and aims to find synergies to improve the overall environmental performance levels of its assets. For example, it regularly builds their awareness on how to sort their waste correctly, and each year it presents the CSR best practices applied by retailers in its centers, with stickers or signs at the entrance to the stores concerned and on the center websites.
