It covers a larger area than the Pentagon in Washington and can provide employment for several small towns The new AUSTRIA CAMPUS in the second municipal District of Vienna.
The new headquarters of the UniCredit Bank Austria at the AUSTRIA CAMPUS is the location of UniCredit Bank Austria, Vienna-based UniCredit CEE divisions and all UniCredit affiliated companies in Vienna. Around 5,300 employees are experiencing a completely new working environment here. In two buildings with approximately 60,000 square metres of office space.
With the move to the new headquarters at the Austria Campus, UniCredit Bank Austria has achieved the following savings
- Electricity consumption: around 23 GWh
- Heating energy requirements: around 20 GWh
- Resulting CO2 emissions reduction: around 7,000 tonnes
- The electricity savings of 23,351,776 kWh equate approximately to the use of 7,784 two-person households. Almost all of the current inhabitants of Vienna’s first district could be placed in these 7,667 households (there are 16,465 inhabitants).
- The savings in heating energy requirements (savings of 20,513,420 kWh), equates to the usage of 2,857 new-build homes measuring 80m². That is more than twice as many homes than there currently are at the Karl-Marx-Hof in Vienna (1,325 homes).
- The CO2 savings (around 5,500 tonnes), through the reduction of electricity and heating energy requirements, corresponds to driving 27,760,000 km with a medium-sized diesel car on a motorway. If you were to build a highway to the moon, you would be able to go there and back 46 times. 5,500 tonnes of CO2 correspond to the amount of greenhouse gases produced with the rearing of 417 tonnes of beef.
