MIPIM, the must-attend international event for real estate professionals, has just ended in Cannes. It brought together the most influential players in the sector during four intense days of conferences and events, allowing participants to discover major innovative real estate projects and access international sources of capital.
For the 30th edition, the theme “Engaging the Future” was chosen, proposing participants to consider the next 30 years from the perspective of sustainable growth. During this event, the public sought to answer three essential questions:
What are the best strategies for creating long-term value?
What are the alternatives to ensure a better quality of life for all?
What are the most environmentally responsible practices so that existing resources be used more efficiently?
Let’s discover together the highlights of this anniversary edition!
The French Social Security Institution (in French: Sécurité Sociale) is divided into five branches: Disease, Accidents at Work, Family, Retirement, and Contributions. Within the Social Security institution, the Union of Social Security Branches or UCANSS (in French: Union des Caisses Nationales de Sécurité sociale) is entrusted by the national branches with missions on matters relating to the working conditions of the organizations’ personnel or on any subject of operation of organizations of common interest, particularly for real estate transactions.
The Sustainability and Real Estate Department of the UCANSS ensures the overall asset management and the safety of their real estate operations (approximately 4.5 million m², only tertiary), both on the budgetary, regulatory and legal aspects. Within this department, Dominique Conti is in charge of the real estate operations department.
