Chubb´s main office, located in São Paulo, offers all the infrastructure to make a sustainable contribution to the environment. The building, Eldorado Business Tower, is one of the few in the world that has got the stamp Green Building in the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum category, the agency that certifies environmentally sustainable buildings. It is the first building certified in this category in all Latin America, the eighth in the world and the third outside the United States. The office has systems in operation that make it self-sustainable in the supply of water and electricity. The water used for human consumption comes from two deep tubular wells and receives treatment directly from a station, without relying on the local authority water supply. It has capacity to meet 100% of the energy demand with uninterrupted supply, without relying on the local body.
Other procedures aimed at energy efficiency, such as rational use of water, selective collection, sustainable materials and environmental quality, contribute to a more sustainable world.
Collection, treatment and use of rainwater for irrigation, washing floors and supply of toilet bowls and urinals in public areas.
Low percentage of glass and transparent area in the facade (43%) and use of high performance glasses, reducing the gain of thermal load by the internal environment and, consequently, an increased demand for air conditioning.
