In 2009, a new sustainable headquarter was constructed. Under the building a heat and cold storage plant was installed. In 2015, there have been installed 700 solar panels on the workshop’s roof that have fallen our energy costs by 15% in one year. The payback period is thus achieved within six years.
“Sustainable energy today means working on tomorrow.” – Heinen & Hopman
With initiatives from several departments and ideas from colleagues Heinen & Hopman is active on several innovative solutions. The Research & Development department of Heinen & Hopman will continue its research every single day looking for more sustainable ways of producing.
Geothermal and solar energy
Geothermal energy is thermal energy extracted from and stored in the ground, which gives the office natural warmth and ground water. Solar energy never runs out and does not release greenhouse gases.
Cycling for charity
With every kilometer the employees cycle on a yearly base, we sponsor charity.
Fuel efficient driving
Heinen & Hopman rewards their employees with company cars that run most efficiently on a monthly base.
No matter how much is produced, all of the industrial waste is recycled for 100%!
Sensors in the office will detect every movement and switch on or off automatically depending on the activity in the room.
