The different fields are based on the Code of Conduct which guides and commits Responsible Housing providers to integrate Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) principles into their business strategy and translate them into concrete practices. 

  • Fair financing for housing affordability

  • More than a roof – supporting communities of equal opportunities
