FrieslandCampina’s New Innovation Centre is Highly Sustainable

FrieslandCampina’s New Innovation Centre is Highly Sustainable

The-new FrieslandCampina Innovation Centre in Wageningen has obtained the three-star New Buildings Certificate. The three stars stand for ‘very good’ and this demonstrates the high sustainability level of the building.

The sustainability aspects in the building were applied in close cooperation between FrieslandCampina, Hurks and the Arcadis firm of consulting engineers. The newly built complex features a number of innovative energy concepts, such as heat and cold storage, photovoltaic cells and a sustainable air conditioning system. Renewable energy is also generated using biogas from affiliated dairy farms based on a certificate system.

Gerard Menting, Corporate Real Estate Director at FrieslandCampina, comments: “FrieslandCampina makes high demands with respect to sustainability. During the construction process, the designers and builders took our specific user requirements in connection with sustainability into account. For example, besides constructing the building in a sustainable way, they incorporated many provisions that stimulate sustainable behaviour among the users as well. Charging points for electric cars have been provided and the centre is easy to reach by bicycle and public transport.”

The energy consumption in the new complex is 25% below the norm specified by the government. The centre also includes energy-saving installations and equipment. Heat is recycled. Movement and daylight sensors automatically turn down the air conditioning system when rooms are empty. On the basis of a ‘green certificates’ system, green energy produced by FrieslandCampina’s own member dairy farmers is used.

Sustainability is top priority in FrieslandCampina’s route2020 strategy and it is achieved through energy efficiency, use of renewable energy and reduction of the carbon footprint through measures ranging from sustainable dairy farming to sustainable purchasing and from green ICT to sustainable offices and plants.
