£500,000 works begin to transform BGEN’s headquarters into a net zero building

Work has begun to transform BGEN’s headquarters into a net zero building. The business is investing £500,000 as it continues to reduce its carbon footprint.

“As a business we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint as soon as possible,” says Oliver Groarke, Head of Sustainability at BGEN. “Part of this project will enable BGEN to evaluate new concepts and technologies which we will be able to offer to our customers and prospects as they go on their own decarbonisation journeys”.

The works to be undertaken include:

  • Replacing the HVAC system
  • Fitting solar panels
  • Installing water reduction technologies
  • Establishing renewable energy systems
  • Fitting LED lighting
  • Installing electric vehicle charging points
  • Setting up control and energy monitoring systems

“As a business we’re committed to becoming a net zero organisation by 2035 at the latest,” continues Oliver Groarke. “We have a lot more exciting developments in this area and look forward to sharing more updates in the near future.”

The project is due for completion by September 2022.
