Approximately 80 kilometers outside of Brussels, The Capital of Europe, Nike’s newly expanded European Logistics Campus sources energy from its surrounding landscape.Nike’s approach to sustainable innovation resulted in a distribution center constructed as a rack-supported building. The complete racking system provides the structural support for the building’s roof and walls and moves away from a more traditional structure requiring steel and concrete.Probably the world ‘s longest hanging green façade, it provides 3.000 sqm of green façade which integrate useable spaces for the people, sun protection and hidden emergency routes.
The design has been based on three focus points: fossil-free operations, closed loop flows, a healthy and biodiverse environment, and thus creating a benchmark for Nike. 99% of inbound containers reach the campus container park, the largest inland container park in the world by water, not road, saving 14.000 truck journeys a year.The Nike European Logistics Campus uses 100% renewable energy and sources energy from five locally generated renewable energy sources: wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and hydroelectric. We would like to thank Futureproofed for there excellent contribution and expertise in this area.
