Health, well-being and sustainability. Actiu an example of it
Recently, the Actiu headquarters in Castalla (Alicante) became the fifth world complex to receive the certificate Well v2 Platinum and the first industrial building in the world to add the two certifications, Leed and Well Platinumwhich credit it as a healthy and sustainable space, which ensures the well-being of people working inside it and takes care of their environment abroad.

The Well v2 Platinum Certification, awarded by the Well Building Institute (WBI), accredits through a system of points for buildings and communities to what extent these spaces are built to guarantee the health and well-being of their occupants, evaluating aspects such as lighting, temperature and even the mood of the people. This accreditation, together with the one obtained in 2017 when the company headquarters in Castalla consolidated its LEED Platinum Certification (previously Leed Oro in 2011) for the sustainable architecture of its park, make it the first industry in the world to add these two international recognitions.

“Inverting in health and well-being is investing in life. Companies need that dynamism and that human value. And that is achieved by caring for and stimulating people through space. The WELL Certification takes into account physical well-being but also emotional well-being. And all that has to do with the heart and the senses is life. Life for employees and also for companies”, explains Soledat Berbegal, Counsellor and brand reputation director in Actiu.
