E.ON employs circular solutions of the future
When one of Europe's largest energy groups moved into its new Nordic headquarters, sustainability featured heavily in all elements of the interior furnishings. A unique office project has been delivered thanks to innovative services and creative reuse. “I’m firmly convinced that it is precisely these types of solutions that can inspire others to take action too,” says Carina Tollmar, Sustainability Manager at E.ON Sweden.
“Sustainability is one of the most important aspects of our strategy and needs to permeate everything we do. Naturally, that also includes our offices and work environment. So when we made the decision to move to new offices, sustainability was organically integrated into the new building,” explains Carina.
Architecture practice Tengbom has been responsible for the interior design, while Input interior has served as turnkey supplier for interior furnishings. As a project partner, Input interior has not merely provided expert product guidance, but also helped oversee the company’s existing interior furnishings.
“The project group has demonstrated curiosity, innovation and cooperation, with members pushing one another to find new sustainable solutions. Each decision has been made with the aim of delivering environmental savings – a unique approach for an office with 1,500 employees,” says Erik Lundqvist, Head of Project Sales & Business Development at Input interior.
Instead of fully furnishing the office with brand new items, a considerable proportion of E.ON’s existing furniture has been reconditioned and reused. Input interior’s knowledge and broad range of services has enabled ideas that initially seemed unattainable to be realised in full.
