Groupe Terre is the association overseeing the activities of the group (its General Assembly taking the strategic and political decisions of the group) and housing the transversal services common to all structures (General management, staff department, financial department IT service etc.). Autre Terre asbl is in charge of the development of projects in the South while Fleur service social asbl deals with social housing and relocation in Belgium as well as the sale of second-hand textiles.

Finally, Pan-Terre safs manufactures insulating panels which are sold by Acoustix sa and placed by Co-Terre safs (which also deals with positioning device for sliding sides and ironwork).
