Avery Dennison EU HQ awarded sustainability certificateMonday, February 8, 2016
The long-term leased building acts as the European hub for the global Avery Dennison (NYSE:AVY) Materials Group business - a leader in labelling, packaging, and graphics solutions. A BREEAM1 ‘Very Good’ certificate was awarded at a ceremony on December 10, during a celebration for all of the partners involved in the building’s design and construction. The building is located in the BioScience Park in Oegstgeest, which is among the top five science parks in Europe.
Angelo Depietri, vice president/general manager Avery Dennison Materials Group Europe, said that Avery Dennison aims to break through conventional patterns of thinking and stretch existing boundaries in its drive to improve environmental performance: “Our sustainability vision involves thinking about much more than our own operations. We work to support sustainability initiatives with our customers, our partners, and across the wider community.
This new building was conceived from the very start to create a place where our employees could collaborate, innovate, and inspire our customers – and also to offer exceptional performance with resource and energy consumption.
