Steen & Strøm is a member of the Klépierre Group, which is the world leader of its sector in sustainability. We are delighted by the results achieved 2018-2022, but maintaining status quo is not an option. Given the climate emergency we need to set even more ambitious goals.

In 2023, the Klépierre group including Steen & Strøm has renewed our ESG ambition with four new commitments - achieving net zero, servicing communities, growing people and promoting sustainable lifestyles, concrete objectives and one overriding purpose for 2030.

Manifesto. Consume sustainably? Absolutely. But where? And how?


Consume sustainably? Absolutely. But where? And how?

First, in a low carbon environment.

That’s great news, because our centers have already cut their emissions by 80% and their energy consumption by 40% in the last 10 years. And in 10 more, they’ll be net zero carbon. Because they’ll have kept up energy efficiency efforts and rolled them out at our retailers. They’ll only use renewable energy, when they’re not generating their own on site. And they’ll always be accessible without gasoline.

Sustainable commerce also means providing services, as close to home as possible.

At Klépierre , there’ll always be the best products, but solutions to recycle them, repair them and give them a second life too. And above all, there’ll always be a place for everyone. To welcome you whenever you want. And whenever you need.
Because caring for people always pays off in the long run. That’s what we do for our teams, our visitors and our partners. First, by training and developing them, to unleash their talent. Then, by making them aware of global challenges, and involving them in our approach.

Playing our part in changing consumption habits means introducing our visitors to alternative, responsible services and product ranges. It means showcasing innovative, socially useful concepts. And it means supporting sustainable initiatives and events.
In all of our shopping centers.

Together with our retailers, our employees, our customers and partners, we are going to build the most sustainable platform for commerce by 2030.

Three questions to Clementine Pacitti, Head of CSR at Klépierre

Find out the answers to how a new CSR strategy was created, while we're already the leader. And how the new plan was developed. What was really the game changer?

An independent scientific committee of leading experts

To define the new CSR strategy, Klépierre collaborated with nine leading experts for a year. Together the committee, and employees who gave their input, decided on a realistic and ambitious roadmap.


Achieving net zero

We will manage, renovate and build shopping centers that contribute to the fight against global warming by developing low-energy buildings, producing renewable energy and promoting circular economy principles. We will also include our retailers and visitors in our approach.

Servicing communities

Our shopping centers are more than just buildings, they are true hubs for their host communities. They now need to be considered as spaces where local needs can be heard, understood and met with relevant and inclusive solutions.

Growing people

Our employees’ development has always been a priority at Steen & Strøm. Today, we are taking things further by extending this goal to our partners and communities and by incorporating CSR into everyone’s work.

Promoting sustainable lifestyles

As a leader, it is our responsibility at Steen & Strøm to improve the very fundamentals of our business. We will never tell our customers what to buy, but we will work to promote more responsible lifestyles and retail choices by positioning ourselves as drivers of this change within our ecosystem.


"Being a leader means having the courage to challenge the very foundations of our business, to reduce its footprint and improve its impact on the world around us. Being a leader also means allowing all our stakeholders to join us and together building the most sustainable platform for commerce."
