Avery’s new HQ gains a BREEAM rating

Avery Dennison has brought its sustainability vision to life at its new EU headquarters and Research & Development centre in Oegstgeest, the Netherlands.

The long-term leased building, which acts as the European hub for the global Avery Dennison Materials Group business, was awarded a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ certificate during a recent ceremony to celebrate its design and construction.

Angelo Depietri, Vice President/General Manager Avery Dennison Materials Group Europe, commented that Avery Dennison aims to break through conventional patterns of thinking and stretch existing boundaries in its drive to improve environmental performance:, He said: “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 regards to  resource and energy consumption.”

A whole range of sustainability features have been brought together to merit the tough BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating. The headquarters features energy efficient ground-storage heating and cooling, heat-reflective glass, elevators that recover energy, motion-controlled lighting, FSC-certified timber, and more than 100 birdcages on a sedum-covered green roof.

Angelo Depietriadded that none of the many sustainability measures implemented have compromised function and reported:  “We now have a 12,000m2 sustainable building that can accommodate up to 450 people, including a 1,600m2 state-of-the-art Research & Development centre for further product innovation.”
