We greatly value supporting groups in society that are less privileged and in need of some extra help. Therefore CBRE supports various Dutch and international aid organizations and charities.

Proud of our partnership with Plan International
Plan is a truly inspiring independent global charity. They have been working for more than 75 years to change the stories of millions of children and offer them a different life.
Therefore we, along with all offices in Europe, Middle East and Africa (CBRE EMEA), selected Plan International as our EMEA charity partner. For the period 2017-2019 we are working with Plan International:
Creating Safer Cities Cities need to be safe and tolerant, provide equal opportunities for all and exclude none. Together with Plan, we are committed to putting children at the centre of transforming cities.
Ebola Crisis. Following the deadly Ebola outbreak across West Africa, we are working with Plan International to ensure that children are protected, and as the outbreak is contained, to help thousands of Ebola orphan children.
