Unibail-Rodamco is pleased to announce the appointment of Ludovic Flandin as Managing Director CSR as from January 1st 2017. He will continue to assume his current duties as Managing Director of URLab. Amongst his new assignment, he will lead the implementation of “Better Places 2030”, the Group’s new CSR strategy, reporting to Astrid Panosyan, Chief Resources Officer and Member of the Management Board.
|In September 2016, Christophe Cuvillier, Chairman of the Management Board of Unibail-Rodamco, unveiled a new Corporate and Social Responsibility agenda, “Better Places 2030”. The goal the group hopes to achieve by 2030 is to reduce by 50% the carbon emissions resulting from its activities and from its stakeholders.
Ludovic Flandin, 38 years, graduated from HEC Paris and joined Unibail-Rodamco in 2003 in the French Retail Team as Operating Analyst. He was promoted Operating Manager in 2005, then Group Operating Manager within the Group Operations Team in the Corporate Center in 2007. In 2008, he joined Unibail-Rodamco Spain where he became Director of Operations. In 2011, he was promoted Group Director of International Leasing. He has been the Managing Director of UR Lab since 2013.
Following his appointment as Managing Director CSR and UR Lab, Ludovic Flandin now has to help implement a strategy which is incorporated into the entire value chain of Unibail-Rodamco. As a matter of fact, he will be the ambassador of a disrupting programme impacting the way the group does business and makes decisions, testing innovative solutions in development or operations, embarking all UR employees to take an active role to make the group’s CSR agenda come through, and, most importantly, accelerating collaboration with external stakeholders.
This makes Unibail-Rodamco the first listed real estate company to engage on such an ambitious and global strategy and to address the scope of indirect emissions generated by construction works, consumption of energy by tenants and transport used by all users of its sites (visitors and employees). The group is a pioneer in the field of Corporate and Social Responsibility, placing the matter at the center of its strategy. Ludovic Flandin’s challenge as new Managing Director CSR and UR Lab is to contribute to building innovative and responsible solutions for the hundreds of millions of visitors Unibail-Rodamco shopping centres welcome every year.
