The office and laboratory complex of Research and Development Center (part of the Rosneft Group) has again been assigned the status of a Green Office, confirmed by the BREEAM In-Use certificate.
Experts from BREEAM, one of the most respected international organisations for assessing the environmental performance of buildings, have awarded the Rosneft building on Leninsky Prospekt in Moscow the Excellent* level, an improvement on last year. Currently, only about ten buildings in Russia have a BREEAM In-Use certificate with the Excellent level.
The certificate attests to the high level of performance of the building, its energy efficiency, rational use of electricity, heat and water resources, and a comfortable and safe working environment for employees.
The improved score was made possible by the increased involvement of R&D centre staff in Green Office activities and the continued introduction of innovative energy-saving technologies in the building. This included the installation of water purification units, specialised software and sensors for detecting water and freon leaks, and mobile space alteration elements to improve the functionality of individual rooms.
Responsible attitude towards the environment is an integral part of the Company's corporate culture and one of the core principles of its business. Confirming its commitment to the UN sustainable development goals, Rosneft reduces its environmental footprint both in the implementation of new projects and in the course of ongoing operations and applies best practices for minimizing its impact on ecosystems.
Note for Editors:
BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) is a method for evaluating the environmental performance of «green» buildings, developed in 1990 by the British organization BRE Global. The assessment is made on many parameters that take into account life safety, environmental impact, and comfort aspects and reflect the building's relevance at the development site.
The BREEAM assessment is based on scoring in energy, land use, environment, water, health and well-being, transport, materials, waste, etc.
Research and Development Center LLC is a part of the Rosneft research and design complex. The Centre's modern technical equipment and flexible infrastructure ensure rapid expansion of capacities in the field of commercial research and development in accordance with the new tasks put forward by the Company.
*The BREEAM In-Use grading system has five levels: Pass, Good, Very Good, Excellent and Outstanding.
