EBRC celebrates its 22nd anniversary with a new green headquarters in Leudelange
Together with its staff of more than 360 employees, of which 210 are based in Luxembourg, EBRC is moving into a new cutting-edge eco-efficient and smart building in Leudelange.
Leudelange, July 11, 2022
On Thursday July 7, 2022, EBRC - European Business Reliance Centre - inaugurated its new headquarters in the "am Bann" business park in Leudelange in the presence of around 250 clients, officials, partners and employees.
After the pandemic, and on the occasion of its 22nd year of activities, EBRC wanted to regroup its teams in brand-new offices, in order to meet the new post-pandemic challenges.
With its ambition to become a European digital centre of excellence and trust in the protection and management of sensitive information, EBRC opted for sustainable development in 2010.
Its logo, a digitalised version of an inuksuk, an Inuit symbol, symbolises its commitment to protecting the planet.
The company has also translated this commitment into its E.A.R.T.H. values - Excellence, Agility, Responsibility, Trust, Human - to frame its mission to be a "digital trust centre at the heart of Europe".
This commitment translates into multiple programmes ranging from the energy and environmental performance of its sites (headquarters and three Tier IV Data Centers in Luxembourg), to demanding certification programmes, to well-being at work and cultural diversity, to fully supporting the local ecosystem and humanitarian actions.
Regarding the protection of the planet, EBRC is also committed to 2 objectives:
- Climate neutrality of its data centres by 2025, 5 years ahead of the 2030 target set by the industry;
- Carbon neutrality of its activities by 2040.
The Human element as the central component
The Minister of Economic Affairs Franz Fayot, the Mayor of Leudelange Diane Bisenius-Feipel, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of EBRC, the Managing Director of Post Luxembourg Claude Strasser and Yves Reding, CEO of EBRC, inaugurated the new headquarters, which offers working conditions that are efficient, environmentally-friendly and adapted to people in an increasingly technological world.
It meets the highest standards of environmental performance, defined by very high-performance classes in the areas of energy consumption, thermal insulation and CO2 emissions. The building has also received BREEAM "Very Good" (New Construction 2016) certification and Seco-Comfort Label class A certification, which reflects the concern to offer the best visual, acoustic and air quality comfort for occupants while keeping maintenance and energy costs as low as possible.
Minister of Economic Affairs Franz Fayot said: "EBRC has developed tremendously since its creation. It is a key player in the IT ecosystem that has contributed to forging Luxembourg's reputation and international influence in this sector. Today, EBRC is actively contributing to the key objective of the digital transition by limiting its carbon footprint, by being fully committed to being environmentally responsible and by actively contributing to key projects such as Gaia-X. I wish the company a successful future in its new buildings."
"As a digital company, at the heart of a digital ecosystem, we have a major responsibility to contribute to the construction of a responsible digital world, which ensures the safeguarding of the planet and places the human element at the centre of Technology." (Yves Reding, CEO of EBRC)
