Technopolis provides workspaces, yes. But we’re all about business. Companies move here to do better business.
However, the traditional ways to do business have outlived themselves and the whole planet is now everybody’s business. People, business, planet. When all these are seen as vital elements of business, we really mean business. Sustainable, good, modern business.
Our firm belief is that if people have a chance to flourish in their work, they make the world a better place to live in.
There are many things we’re already doing to make the planet a better place to live and work in. And Technopolis is doing those things for its customer companies and their employees. This is a constant work in progress, and we will continue to find new ways to improve people’s wellbeing and minimize our environmental footprint.
In Technopolis premises, sustainability starts with a well-planned, functional layout that ensures fresh indoor air, optimal lighting and good acoustics.
All restaurants offer vegetarian options, while many of our campuses include gyms, bicycle parking areas and shower facilities that encourage cycling to work. Most of our premises are centrally located and easy to reach by public transport. The work-life balance of our customer companies is furthered through campus services, such as family movie days and daycare centers located on some of our campuses. Comfortable shared areas and networking events give rise to everyday social encounters and a sense of community.
Eco-efficiency is a top priority in the maintenance of our properties.
It leads to savings in emissions as well as euros. We develop the efficiency of our buildings with active optimization measures and investments. Technopolis premises in Finland and Vilnius use green electricity, while roof solar panels are becoming more common.
Technopolis uses LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) environmental certificates of the buildings as management, minimization and measurement tools of environmental impact.
The rating is used to guide us on new constructions and the management of existing buildings. LEED certificates are verified by a third party and include several measurements: Indoor air, energy efficiency, materials and waste, water consumption and innovations.
Technopolis customers can proudly cite the sustainable maintenance of their premises when reporting on their own sustainability.
