The new headquarters is located in Madrid’s new innovation district (MADbit), one of the fastest growing business areas in the capital. Located at 546 Alcalá Street, in front of Quinta de Torre Arias Park. This project has been conceived under strict environmental, technological and welfare criteria for all employees, and its implementation represents the launch in Spain of the new work model promoted by the group.
Juan Alonso de Lomas, general manager of Spain and Portugal for L’Oréal, said: “I am particularly proud of this project, as it represents our culture and many of the values present in our corporate purpose“.
The building also has energy efficiency systems for temperature regulation, as well as energy-saving LED lights with presence detectors in areas of permanent non-occupancy, among other features, which ensure the sustainability of the buildingsuch as the installation of solar panels to produce photovoltaic energy that supplies all the area services.
L’Oréal’s new headquarters in Spain has been built to achieve two of the most important international distinctions in environmental sustainability and wellness, in line with the commitments outlined in its ‘L’Oréal For The Future’ program. The new space at Alcalá 546 will request, on the one hand, certification of the LEED Platinumwhich recognizes compliance with the highest standards of eco-efficiency, and rewards the use of sustainable strategies in all construction processes; and, on the other hand, the WELL (Well Building Standard) sealwhich would be awarded for being a structure designed by and for the well-being and health of the employees.
Lola Ortuño, Human Relations Director of L’Oréal Spain and Portugal, has assured that “This new building is a living representation of our ambition to generate a unique working model (…) offering a more inclusive and innovative environment and ensuring a better quality of work and well-being. It is undoubtedly a project that reinforces our position as one of the best companies to work for”.
