Coca-Cola represents over 400 brands in 200 countries. In Canada, it operates in all provinces, and employs 6,300 people in more than 50 facilities. For Coca-Cola, sustainability is a long-term commitment to partners and the communities it serves. The Coca-Cola Office at 333 King Street East, Toronto is the new location for the company headquarters. It includes a reception area on the ground floor; while remaining floors 4-6 include a lunch room, meeting/board rooms, private offices and open workstation area. Employees also have access to the building’s outdoor patio for a breath of fresh air.
Situated in a high density, walkable neighbourhood to encourage alternative and active forms of commuting, amenities such as bike racks and showers were provided. This compliments a workplace designed to support healthier work styles.
Occupancy lighting sensors in offices, meeting rooms, corridors and staff lunch room to reduce energy used for lighting. Almost all office equipment and appliances, including beverage vending machines are Energy Star rated to reduce energy consumption.
Exemplary performance was achieved by the installation of low-flow plumbing fixtures, that resulted in water use reduction of over 48%.
