Bloomberg Headquarters is “the Most Sustainable Office”

The administrative building located between St Paul’s Cathedral and the Bank of England in London is quite likely Europe’s most environmentally friendly administrative building. The newly completed European headquarters for the FinTech and data company Bloomberg was given a rating of Outstanding (98.5% out of a maximum of 100%) by the BREEAM assessors, who rank projects on their environmental, social, and economic sustainability. The building is designed to use 73% less water and 35% less energy than a standard office building. For example, the ceiling panels are covered in 500,000 energy-saving LEDs. “We believe that environmentally friendly practices are as good for business as they are for the planet,” said Bloomberg’s founder Michael Bloomberg.
