Novartis is transforming its global headquarters in Basel, Switzerland, from what was once a chemical production site into a state-of-the-art centre of research, development and management. This long term development project will run until 2030 and reinforces Novartis commitment to Switzerland and the Basel area, the centre of the company’s operations since its founding. Novartis has an environmentally responsible approach to the campus project, prioritising recycling and using advanced energy-saving technologies. Only obsolete buildings are being replaced, and they are recycled rather than demolished: old concrete is broken down and reused; glass and aluminium are recycled. Energy efficiency is a prerequisite for new buildings. On average, new campus office buildings will consume two-thirds less energy than the average office building in Switzerland. www.novartis.com
