Stockholm, Sweden 08 March 2010 -- SCA Group headquarters will be relocated to the Waterfront Building, Stockholm’s new landmark, by the Central Station. The move was carried out at the beginning of March and represents a cost-efficient solution that reflects the SCA of today and tomorrow. The Waterfront Building conforms to a range of requirements governing environmentally friendly workplaces of the future.
SCA is vacating its premises at Stureplan, where the office has been spread out over a number of addresses. In efforts to identify new premises, needs-adapted and efficiently utilized premises combined with a distinct environmental profile have been the guiding principles.
“Our goal has been to create a cohesive and thus enhanced working environment, with simpler communication between various departments at head office. We have also assigned great importance to identifying an efficient environmental solution,” said Gordana Landén, senior vice president, Corporate Human Resources.
Gordana Landén also points out the significance of effective communications, which, for a company like SCA, is highly significant for contacts with customers, suppliers, and other parts of the company. Consequently, the proximity to the Central Station is positive from an environmental and communications perspective.
The Waterfront Building, a part of Stockholm Waterfront, is one of Sweden’s greenest buildings. Energy consumption is reduced by, for example, using water from Klara sjö (Klara Lake) to cool the property. In addition, water and ice are used to store energy. The complex has a double-glazed façade that works as a solar collector and the Waterfront Building comfortably meets the requirements of the EU Green Building standard.
