Evonik Brazil

New headquarters in Sao Paulo

Sustainable state-of-the art facilities will enhance collaboration between departments.

Evonik Brazil will have a new home as of December 19: Torre A (Tower A) of the cutting-edge EZ Towers, located in the Morumbi district of São Paulo. The new headquarters will house administrative and business areas that up to now were located around Paulista Avenue. When it moves into its new headquarters, Evonik will switch from a vertically structured space to a horizontal one, and the interaction between staff in the open-space office will lead to enhanced speed, higher efficiency, and greater productivity.

"Before, staff were spread across 12 floors of a narrow building, which made it difficult to bring about seamless integration and communication between the different areas. The new offices will have only two floors, which will be connected by internal stairs. With more working space available, we will have a more productive and innovative environment, with a substantial improvement in the interaction between the different departments of the company”, said Weber Porto, Evonik’s regional president for the South and Central America region.

The new offices will also support regional growth. The company, which has opened three production plants in Brazil over the past three years—two in 2016 alone—and expanded its sales and service structures in Brazil and other countries in South America, will close the year with this important investment. All of this reinforces the company’s commitment to the South America region.

Sustainability was one of the main reasons why Evonik chose the new building which, in addition to its magnificent esthetics, has all the sustainability features of modern projects and can accommodate state-of-the art technologies, telephone systems, optical fibers, lighting, and energy. The building is rated as triple A. The EZ Towers have been granted the LEED Gold (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification in the Core and Shell category, meeting the protocols established by the American organization the Green Building Council.
