NAD CSI Initiatives


NAD's approach to their shopping centre developments is interwoven with their aim to benefit and empower previously disadvantaged communities, particularly in rural areas. Their retail developments stimulate economic growth and result in nodes which become the heartbeat of a community. They encourage local job creation and social activities, enhance a sense of belonging and pride, and restore dignity and hope.

"We strongly advise our tenants to employ people from the community," says CEO Japie van Niekerk. "Ultimately, our developments should not only increase the quality of living and service levels in the area, but also nurture an environment that is conducive to growth and future development."
