Roka's DNA is to improve the operational performance of assets - such as optimising energy efficiency and reducing the carbon emissions of buildings - through ambitious redevelopment projects. For this reason, we focus on acquiring aging buildings and then renovating them in a sustainable manner with the aim of achieving the best possible environmental and energy certifications.

Roka ESG policy also deals with social and governance issues, such as the health and well-being of building occupants, access and mobility concerns.

Our sustainable value creation strategy not only improves our working and commercial environment but also contributes to increasing the value of our real estate assets while reducing regulatory and reputational risks.


Since 2023, Roka is a member of the 1 building, 1 artwork community which aims to bring art closer to buildings. This charter is part of the Ministry's policy of supporting artistic creation and promoting the visual arts to the public.


Convinced that art is a catalyst for social cohesion and a source of purpose, we are proud to be working alongside the French Ministry of Culture by signing the “1 immeuble, 1 œuvre” charter to promote artists and their works in our projects."
