The new office building is built and equipped according to the latest energy-saving standards. The project developer has implemented a holistic concept that includes all aspects of state-of-the-art sustainable building development and control. With measures such as rainwater recovery, energy-saving lighting as well as heating/ cooling/ ventilation control and green roof areas, the building benefits from the highest LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification level – Platinum. The building also has a Well Health-Safety Rating, an evidence-based third-party verified rating focused on operational policies, protocols and emergency plans to address a post-Covid 19 environment, as well as broader health and safety issues into the future.
“We at Citi are on a clear path to Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions of our own operations by 2030. Our new Romanian headquarters is an important step, as it combines the latest technologies for saving resources with a focus on well-being in the workplace. The new building offers our team of around 200 employees space for modern, flexible and hybrid working methods, space for creativity, collaboration and even quiet rooms” says Samir Karia, Citi Country Officer for Romania.
Kristine Braden, Citi’s Head of Europe, who recently visited the local office for the inauguration of the space, commented: “Citi Romania joins other important Citi branches in Europe who have recently announced either plans or actual moves to new, more sustainable office spaces, including in Milan, Paris and Frankfurt. Romania is a successful and important market for Citi in Europe and this new headquarter space will help us further enhance both the employee and client experience”.
