The opening of Bloomberg’s new European Headquarters in London demonstrates our ongoing commitment to global sustainability and environmental conservation in the communities in which we live and work. The new building was rated the world’s most sustainable office design, achieving an ”Outstanding” rating using the BREEAM sustainability assessment method with a 98.5% score. This is the highest design-stage score ever achieved by any major office development. Employees at Bloomberg are also doing their part to support the environment with over 2,000 employees dedicating more than 12,000 hours of hands-on action supporting local greening efforts in 21 cities around the world in 2017. Bloomberg employees were dedicated to preserving and restoring our local green spaces throughout the year. In April, nearly 100 Bloomberg employees and clients in Tokyo participated in a cleanup and tree planting at Mt. Fuji, a UNESCO World Heritage site. In London, Bloomberg sponsored Buckhill Meadow with the Royal Parks Foundation, keeping it maintained and thriving throughout the year. In New York, employees helped Governors Island with a number of major green infrastructure projects and helped create and install a new rain garden and bioswale with a 500-square-foot garden to improve drainage across 5,000 square feet of the urban farm.
