NEW ECO-FRIENDLY OFFICES FOR PARAJUMPERSItalian sportswear brand Parajumpers, owned by Ape & Partners, recently moved to its new headquarters in Segusino, Italy in order to meet the needs of their increased business volume as well as their business partners and clients. When choosing the new site and building features, founders and managers Ermanno and Giuliano Paulon decided to focus on respecting their company's DNA and tradition while preserving the environment.
The new 6,000 sqm office, product design center and warehouse stand on the site of an old abandoned factory, the renovation of which greatly improved the town's architecture. The strong liaison between the owners and local workers was reinforced by the decision not to move away from the town where the company was founded almost 50 years ago. Building materials and furniture were chosen with regard to environmental sustainability, using, for instance, biological wood coverings and decorations made of recycled materials. In addition, the complex has been accredited with an A+ rating, thanks to the installation of a 115Kw solar power plant and its low levels of electricity consumption.
For the fall/winter 2012/2013 season, the company will increase its commitment to further reduce its environmental impact. One initiative of note has all Parajumpers jackets delivered with sustainable hangers made of Liquid Wood, a non-toxic 100% biodegradable material manufactured by Mainetti Group.
