When we build new production and logistics facilities within our group, we need to consider the green transition in the process. Read more about our investments in i.a. solar energy, here.
Inviting the green inside
As you may have noticed, STANICO has decided to embark on a green expedition in the core of the company – the THORNICO Building in Rotterdam.
As you may have noticed, STANICO has decided to embark on a green expedition in the core of the company – the THORNICO Building in Rotterdam. The aim is to transform grey concrete into a green urban environment which has been initiated by planting moss and succulent plants on the rooftops of the two towers of the building.
As a further benefit, the green rooftops have, subsequently, been accompanied by three separate beehives housing around 120,000 of some of Europe’s highest living urban bees that have helped bring more flowers and birds to the neighbourhood, not to mention delicious honey!
Another project, which has literally given the THORNICO Building a green profile, is the ‘Green Park’. The project includes covering the 5,000 square metres of the facade of the THORNICO Building’s car parking facilities with ivy, thus making a fully-grown living green wall that has the same filtering effect as 200 mature trees.
THORNICO moss logo
Most recently, STANICO has chosen to invite the nature inside the THORNICO Building in Rotterdam. In cooperation with MOSWENS, the office space has been decorated with a real moss THORNICO logo – giving the office a greener, unique and personal touch.
