COVID-19




Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak in the countries where the Group operates, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield’s primary focus has been to protect the health and safety of its employees, tenants, and visitors. We are carefully monitoring the latest health guidelines issued by the World Health Organization, national, regional, and local governments and adapt our operations accordingly.

In response to this crisis, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield has engaged throughout the Group in a number of solidarity initiatives to support the communities in which it operates. A selection of our assets welcome initiatives to support the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak and we have decided to partner with local NGOs to serve the local communities. Our company purpose is « Reinvent Being Together »: in a time when being together has become difficult if not impossible, we are finding new ways to support our communities.
