Messeturm Basel is the perfect example of 100% sustainability. Using environmentally friendly, pollutant-free materials, in accordance with the Cradle to Cradle® Principle, the new office spaces have been converted into ecological and healthy working environments. This means that all materials used are kept in circulation and can be reused. Air-purifying paints and a special botanical concept ensure optimal well-being. CO2-reducing measures, the promotion of Green Mobility, E-bike charging stations and a journey sharing concept play an equally important role as Cradle to Cradle®design principle.
To get one step closer to the net zero target in 2040, a special UV-repellent film was applied to the approximately 3,500 windows during the summer of 2022. With 11,000 m2 of exterior surface, it is the largest project of its kind in Europe.

Cradle to Cradle®
Cradle to Cradle® (C2C for short) refers to the continuous cycle of materials and resources. Office spaces which are built and fitted according to the Cradle to Cradle®-principle are sustainable and can be easily recycled or re-purposed in the circular economy. This helps to conserve resources and reduce waste. Spaces built according to the C2C Concept are environmentally friendly and promote health. The building materials used, are free from toxins and help to purify the air. This in turn ensures an inspiring and productivity-enhancing atmosphere.
