During 2020, we created a portfolio-wide Community Investment Fund that supports investments made into the local community by tenants.
This adds value beyond just the investment value of the asset, enabling us to support local communities by working in partnership with tenants. A recent example includes supporting micro charities that help those most affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
For example, we have collaborated with our tenant at Rumst in Belgium Cummins, who has partnered with a local food poverty charity De Welzijnsschakel. De Welzijnsschakel have supported over 50 local families who have been impacted by the Covid-19 crisis. We have supported De Welzijnsschakel by providing an emergency grant to buy food vouchers to support an additional 20 families for six weeks.
