Health & safety and environmental risks
The Group pays close attention to health and safety and environmental risk management issues across its portfolio. Unibail-Rodamco complies strictly with all applicable health and safety legislation as a matter of course. Minimum requirements are often exceeded to ensure a higher standard of service and safety for tenants, customers and suppliers.
The main subjects covered by the Group's in-house risk management process are air quality, water quality, asbestos, legionella, electromagnetic radiation, and technical equipment such as lifts and escalators. The internal risk management process also provides a framework for responding to exceptional risks and crises.
Unibail- Rodamco’s due diligence process for acquisition includes a complete audit of technical, regulatory, environmental, and health and safety procedures and risks, including soil pollution and climate change.
An independent, third-party health and safety inspector has been appointed in each country where the Group operates. Each managed asset undergoes an annual health and safety risk assessment process in order to secure compliancy with applicable regulation and the Group’s policy.
