The workspace adapts its facilities to 100% clean energies aiming to protect environment
Global warming is a major concern that concerns the whole world population. Rising temperatures are a fact, and the forecast is that, by 2050, 77% of the world’s biggest cities will have similar conditions to today’s tropical towns, according to a report that was published last Wednesday by the American magazine Plos One.
Bearing this is mind, Gran Via Business & Meeting Center has launched a new special initiative to fight the carbon footprint that is generated by workspaces. So far, the use of electricity was compensated by an abundance of natural light in all of their offices. But from now on, sustainability will be even higher, and this will be possible thanks to the new supplier, AEQ, which provides 100% renewable power.
“In Gran Via BC we believe it is every business’s responsibility to protect the future of our environment”, pointed out the Center Manager of the workspace, Susana de la Rubia, stressing the joint effort that needs to be made in order to create a sustainable system, not only in households, but also on work areas.
With this project, Gran Via BC aims to convey the value of clean energies not only in their facilities in Barcelona, but to everyone working or visiting their spaces: “With this change, we want to inspire as many people as possible to do the same, and to contribute with their own initiatives to control the environment”, adds De la Rubia.
To have clean energies available is also a way to create a better work environment for the workspace users, as they are aware of consuming clean energies at all times.
“During the summer, many people worry about the increase of power consumption and the pollution which is generated in the city, something we managed to change with a very small gesture”, highlights the Center Manager, mentioning some opinions of users of the center that she could hear after the supplier was changed.
This new way of thinking about the office of the future, with Gran Via BC implementing ecological awareness, has achieved that any workspace can ‘be green’ and have a positive attitude towards sustainability.
