COMMUNICATIONS / UK / VODAFONE
Vodafone is the largest pan-European and African communications technology company. It operates mobile and fixed networks in 21 countries and has agreements with mobile operators in 48 other countries, with more than 300 million mobile customers, more than 28 million fixed broadband customers and more than 22 million TV customers.
Created in the United Kingdom, it has more than 90,000 employees worldwide. Recently, Vodafone has inaugurated in Valencia one of its most innovative offices in Avenida de las Cortes Valencianas nº 15. The offices have capacity for up to 400 employees and more than 3,500 m2. The new headquarters has the highest standards of flexibility, accessibility, sustainability and efficiency to offer a more agile and collaborative work environment. Thus, spaces have been created that integrate nature with a design that optimizes natural light conditions and acoustic comfort on all floors. The materials used in the construction are free of chemicals and Volatile Organic Compounds, which, together with the recycling points installed on each floor, ensures a space that is highly focused on recycling and sustainability. In addition, the headquarters has high-efficiency LED lighting, a refrigerant gas air conditioning system with lower electricity consumption, and energy and water-efficient toilets and appliances. Thanks to this investment, it is estimated that savings of more than 40% in electricity consumption can be achieved.
The top floor houses the main common areas and all the spaces are designed to encourage teamwork, with formal, informal and relaxation areas. In addition, the building is equipped with the latest technology in control systems, audiovisual media and space management.
Vodafone contributed more than 492 million euros to the economy of the Comunitat Valenciana Valenciana in the 2020-2021 fiscal year.
