Sustainable accommodation

We are also seeking to make our accommodation more sustainable, with a good example being the expansion of our head office in the Netherlands. This involves the realization of a new building in accordance with the Dutch ‘Greencalc A label’ standard. The building is being fitted with various sustainable energy solutions, such as the use of water sources at a depth of 90 meters below the surface for heating and cooling; this will reduce energy consumption and therefore carbon emissions. The building work is being executed by a contractor that complies with our sustainable criteria, including our strict safety standards. The contractor’s corporate staff and their subcontractors were all given a NINA training at the start of the project.
