A European CSR framework for public and social housing providers

EURHO-GR® is the only European CSR framework specifically designed by and for public and social housing companies to help them implement and account for their Corporate Social Responsibility.

It was developed in 2007 together with key sector stakeholders: tenants, local authorities, shareholders, professionals from the construction sector, employees, financial institutions. It was then progressively improved and updated, taking into account users’ feedback and evolutions in the CSR and the housing fields.

Providing an overall framework to identify key CSR issues and support CSR planning, EURHO-GR® is also a reporting standard. Quantitative and qualitative indicators enable housing organizations to measure their global performance, monitor progress and inform stakeholders on their results and impacts, according to the key CSR principles of accountability and transparency. Some of these indicators are common to all countries; others have been defined at national level in order to take into account local specificities, requirements or expectations.

National reporting frameworks and tools have therefore been developed, based on this common European structure. As such, in each country, the same indicators and calculation methods are used by all EURHO-GR® users.

To get more information on the national EURHO-GR® reporting framework and tools in your country, please contact your national EURHO-GR® focal point. If you are located in another country than the ones listed below, please contact the European focal point.
