Widex’ new headquarters, inaugurated in 2010, is a testament to Widex’ culture and innovative capabilities.
The building, which houses more than 600 employees, stands out as a prime example of a cutting-edge and environmentally friendly building, which combines the use of renewable energy with the maximum recovery of energy.
Unique combination of green technologies
A variety of energy-conserving and environment friendly measures based on new as well as more well-known methods makes the building unique.
The geothermal system, where groundwater is used like a heat reservoir, is the first of its kind in Denmark. The system is very effective, reducing CO2 emissions by seventy percent compared to traditional heating systems.
Widex has also mounted a windmill at the premises which delivers more power annually than Widex uses in total. Not only does this make the headquarters completely CO2-neutral - it also allows Widex to deliver excess power to the electricity grid, providing a CO2-free contribution to the local area.
Other features of the building contribute to the preservation of the environment, such as solar panels and collection of rainwater from the roof.
