The new fish in the development pond, EDGE Technologies, is working on its second office building in Amsterdam. Thanks to advanced technologies, they aim at the strictest ecological sustainability criteria. The company co-works with architects who originally designed the former building back in the 1970s.
It’s high time for you to move over to a healthier office. Why? In a recent test (published in Building and Environment, 2017) performed by American scientists, workers in certified green buildings performed 26.4% than workers in “sick” buildings. And above all, it’s said that they make more money.
Companies from a variety of fields are aiming for a plastic-free office. Among them is for example the consulting firm Horton International Czech, where they make a point of sorting all their waste: you won’t encounter a single water bottle or plastic cup anywhere in their spaces. Butterflies & Hurricane, a company in Prague’s Karlín district, or Skanska as its neighbour likewise maintain a zero-waste policy focused on fighting the plastic evil. Will you join in too?
Enter the mixed-use development of two 30-storey blocks of offices and two 34-storey blocks of luxury residences on top of a four-storey retail block, and you’ll find a lush tropical biodiversity garden. Enter the Marina One complex in Singapore, which has received the MIPIM 2018 award for Best Innovative Green Building.
No matter whether the coming of spring has awoken your green thumb, or you’ve jumped onto the eco-hipster bandwagon, we’d like to offer you an original way to minimize at least part of the waste you generate. (And we really don’t mean your latest report, or that presentation for the boss, but real waste.)
