The Development of a Global Example- Our Headquarters are becoming a "Green Building"
MetadataShow full item record
The Deutsche Bank towers in Frankfurt-am- Main, headquarters and emblem of one of Germany's largest banks are being converted into one of the world's most environmentally friendly high-rise buildings. This comprehensive modernization is turning the towers into a "Green Building", a structure whose operation is ecologically sustainable, boasts low resource consumption and offers a highly-user-friendly architecture. This holistic approach not only offers an improved working environment for employees, but also delivers greater economy as a result of the space gained through the conversion, not to mention greater openness. Thanks to the utilization of modern building technology, the consumption of heating energy, water and electricity will be reduced by 50 percent on average, resulting in a reduction in CO2 emissions of 55%. This conversion is setting new standards internationally, and represents another milestone in the sustainability strategy of Deutsche Bank.
