Sustainability starts with ourselves
What does Markas undertake to promote sustainability in its own company?
The new Markas headquarters: a building dedicated to sustainability
Our new headquarters is a symbol of our efforts to act in more environmentally conscious way. In addition to the WELL-Gold certification, which prioritises the wellbeing of the employees in their working environment, the new building has also been awarded with the CasaClima A certification. The building is equipped with an intelligent light management system that makes optimal usage of the natural light and (thanks to its sensors) adjusts the consumption in an ideal way. All operating facilities meet the highest energy efficiency classes and also the electricity supplying our offices derives from 100% renewable sources. In order to reduce the consumption of plastic bottles, each floor has been equipped with drinking fountains. Furthermore, each floor has an ecological isle with graphical information for the correct waste separation. We are also increasingly focusing on environmentally friendly alternatives for our service cars to contribute in reducing the NO2 concentration in the air. Of more than 400 cars (electric cars included), 67% belong to Euroclass 5 or higher.
