Our employees now work in leafy surroundings – and by this we don’t only mean our Master Growers from our 35 growing countries worldwide. We have a new, green Spanish headquarters in Valencia! True to our philosophy »In harmony with people and nature«, we have taken the needs of our employees into account in the design and construction of the building and have attached great importance to environmentally-friendly and resource-saving architecture. And this is what the implementation looks like:
We’re reducing climate-damaging carbon dioxide.
In our office building, there are 300 square meters with vertical gardens consisting of more than 30 different plant species. They provide a pleasant room atmosphere and help to save a lot of CO2 at the same time. Thanks to the plants, we can reduce stress better, too. For the drivers of electric vehicles, we have set up special parking spaces where they can recharge their cars right away. And soon there will also be a large bicycle parking lot, so that our employees can cycle to work completely emission-free.
We save energy.
In Valencia, the sun shines almost every day. And we’re taking full advantage of it. Our roofs have solar cells that warm our water. But to prevent the sun from shining on our employees’ faces all day long, intelligently controlled slats are mounted on the sunny side of the office.
