L’Echo: Inclusio, social investment at the bedside of low-income workers

June 18, 2020
The crisis will have reinforced the mission of the affordable real estate company, Inclusio. Created in 2015, its maturity is reaching a threshold with 1,250 housing units soon to be reached. Units that will be offered for rent to the most disadvantaged. L'Echo highlighted Inclusio's work in this article.

This is an excerpt translated from the original article of L’Echo.

While the coronavirus crisis may have revealed the weaknesses of some activities, it also demonstrated the relevance of certain models. This is the case of Inclusio, a real estate investment company with a social vocation, born in 2015 in the face of rising rents on the private market. Society forces low-income people to turn to social housing, for which waiting lists are getting longer every year. Some 180,000 households are concerned throughout the country.

Behind the project? The impact investing company KOIS, the bank Degroof Petercam and the urban renewal property developer Revive (co-founded by Nicolas Bearelle and Piet Colruyt). Having realised in early 2010 that all three were moving forward on similar developments, they finally decided to join forces.
