Our social responsibility
No fewer than 80% of people find the neighbourhood they live in to be every bit as important as the home itself. As a neighbourhood developer, we strive for inclusive neighbourhoods where people interact with one another and can fully develop themselves. So we developed a neighbourhood with not just homes and apartments but also adapted residences where people with limitations can live under supervision.
The Matexi Award also highlights social cohesion and recognises projects that get engaged on behalf of their neighbourhood. Such initiatives that help bind a neighbourhood together are close to our heart, and we support them with a money prize so that they can continue and further develop.
As a company we also work, via a number of socially responsible projects, on achieving a more inclusive society. Matexi is a founding partner of YouthStart, an organisation that encourages determined and resourceful young people to discover the challenges and possibilities of independent entrepreneurship. Matexi is co-founder of Vicinia, an independent knowledge centre for neighbourhoods. Vicinia focuses on neighbourhood issues without engaging in party politics. Matexi also supports Itinera Institute in order to contribute to the debate on sustainable economic growth and social protection. Matexi is also founding sponsor of Guberna, the Directors´ Institute that promotes good governance for all companies
"Sustainability is translated not only in terms of energy savings, quality and service life of the materials, good mobility and safety, it also manifests itself in the connection between people. That´s why we find it so important to support projects that bring neighbourhood residents closer to one another."
