Poste Immo, a subsidiary of the La Poste Group, is the real estate holding company and operator of the group. Its creation in 2004 responded to 3 major objectives :
Modernize the group’s real estate.
Optimize the occupation of surfaces, the costs, and the productivity of real estate activity at the heart of the La Poste Group.
Develop the La Poste Group’s real estate.
It acts both as a real estate agent and as a service provider for the property holdings of 13,000 buildings and 7.6 million m². The company implements the La Poste group’s real estate policy and has developed an ambitious responsible development policy.
To put this ambition into action, the Poste Immo signed a joint-venture with Urbasolar and Omnes Capital for the development and financing of photovoltaic projects throughout its real estate holdings. This process meant that the installation of photovoltaic power plants could be maximized under the technical, operational, and economic constraints. The conclusion of the partnership was accompanied by the creation of a holding company held by Urbasolar and Poste Immo Energies Renouvelables, which manages all the photovoltaic installations jointly.
Today, 52 solar plants have been installed on different sites, mail platforms, sorting centers, and more representing more than 100,000 m² of equipped roofs.
