Below are some benefits deriving from the new building:
• URBAN REGENERATION Conversion of the previous building into a building with a low environmental impact, able to reduce urban heat through special green areas located both on the terrace and in other outdoor areas. This increases local biodiversity and absorbs more CO2.
• CO2 MONITORING Continuous monitoring of CO2 emissions in each individual area of the building , in order to keep the environment always safe both in terms of employee well-being and reduction of risks related to Covid-19, with an average of about 10 square meters 2 for location.
• CHARGING Installation, within the company car park, of free electric charging stations, in order to encourage the use of electric and plug in cars.
• ECO CERTIFICATION To demonstrate the ecological quality of the building, we have obtained the BREEAM certification that evaluates a series of factors, such as: management, water, well-being, materials, energy, waste, transport, usability of the territory, innovation and pollution.
We also received the Silver certification of Ecovadis, the most reliable company providing holistic sustainability ratings services, whose evaluation is based on 4 themes: Environment, Working Practices and Human Rights, Fair Business Practices and Sustainable Purchasing.
