Austria Campus

Special attention has been given to ecological and sustainability criteria throughout the Austria Campus. Both an LEED certification as a Green Building, and a DGNB/ÖGNI (Österreichische Gesellschaft für Nachhaltige Immobilienwirtschaft [Austrian Society for Sustainable Real-Estate Management]) certification are sought. Furthermore, UniCredit Austria is setting a special example in relation to ecological sustainability: UniCredit Bank Austria’s own geothermal plant at the Austria Campus is one of the biggest plants in Europe for generating geothermal energy. This energy consumption is used to provide heating in the winter and cooling in the summer, in compliance with all environmental regulations.

UniCredit Bank Austria’s Environmental Management System that has existed since 2011 and is ISO 14001 compliant has also played a significant role in the continual improvement of environmental performance. In the future it will continue to contribute significantly to the most ecologically beneficial use of our new headquarters.

Above all, the new working world is sustainable: apart from a “reduced paper office”, a DGNB silver certification was sought while building the Austria Campus. 

Lobby of Austria Campus

"Our new headquarters are setting standards for modern working and the cooperation between our bank’s teams, and with colleagues in the UniCredit Group. In this way we want to strengthen both our customer focus and employee satisfaction. By concentrating all the central divisions at this cutting-edge location we are able to achieve clear, positive cost effects in accordance with our plan ‘Transform 2019’. At the same time this is a new, open, and modern working organisation built on the basis of ‘Smartworking’, an expression of our idea of an innovative and future-oriented corporate culture."

Robert Zadrazil, chairman of UniCredit Bank Austria

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.

New part of town around the Nordbahnhof in Vienna

The whole project is also a commitment to Vienna as a location: by 2025 a new city area will be developed around the Nordbahnhof with a total area of 85 hectares. The area will be marginally smaller than Vienna Airport which is 100 hectares. The 10,000 subsidised flats, the privately financed homes, and 20,000 jobs will create a new, urban living area in the city district.
