Our “Blue Building” Program – Sustainable Company Buildings Worldwide

With our “Blue Building” program, we work to ensure that our own company buildings meet the highest environmental standards. Furthermore, we have defined specific framework conditions for designing our sites sustainably, examining the full life-cycle of the respective production or office building. Our approach includes saving energy, conserving resources, and above all providing an attractive, healthy working environment for all employees. Since 2012, achieving certification to internationally valid standards for sustainable buildings has been a major criterion in all our large building construction projects.

In 2017, we presented construction plans for a new headquarters complex and a new research center in Hamburg. Beiersdorf is the first company in Germany to target double certification for the construction of its new headquarters to the “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design” (LEED) standard and the “WELL Building Standard”, two internationally recognized seals that certify sustainability and health in building planning. Alongside building efficiency, our employees’ well-being is especially in focus – right from the planning stage, through to the daily use of the new building and its new working environments. Construction is scheduled for completion in 2021.
