The offices

The choice was made to set up Groupe URD’s headquarters “off the beaten track”, in the heart of the Drôme Provençale region in the South of France. Here, we have facilities to accommodate visitors in the tranquillity of a rural “retreat”. Every year, between 250 and 350 people come for training courses, work sessions, conferences or other events.

We have made certain choices to reduce our environmental impact. Our buildings have ecological features such as solar energy, natural insulation materials, rain-water harvesting, wood-chip heating and dry toilets. We also try to be coherent in our actions, through activities such as recycling, tree planting and car sharing.

Groupe URD also has an office in Paris and Annemasse, and a field office in Haiti.
