ENVIRONMENT, SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITYAND CORPORATE LEADERSHIP!
Yes, of course! At Kö-Bogen, 25 visitors of the IRE|BS Real Estate Academy, corporate programme of DZ Hype, had their own guided tour at Kö-Bogen. Marco Koch, Art-Invest, was the Kö-Bogen guide and focused on “Sustainability / ESG”. ESG topics are topics for the future that the Kö-Bogen has already integrated, but also takes up again and again and is always developing further. In the almost 3‑hour tour, the elements “Public Bookcase” and “Dancing at the Kö-Bogen” stand for years of commitment in the social sector. The typical façade greening by star architect Daniel Libeskind and his “Cuts” are an excellent example of how living and CO₂-storing greenery was already used as an integrative building component in a forward-looking way almost 10 years ago. Since then, many native plants have taken up residence in the façade of the five floating gardens at Königsallee 2. Over the past few years, a small city zoo has been created on the Kö-Bogen roof in cooperation with the NABU (Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union): between swifts and insect colonies, there is a hive of activity on the roof. There, the animal inhabitants enjoy the peace and quiet in the middle of the city — in their specially made “insect and bird hotels”.
Building services — an important point on the tour, because the level of digitalisation of the Kö-Bogen’s extensive control processes is complex. The Kö-Bogen is pure high-tech, e.g. software solutions for operational optimisation and other measures in the FM area. Andreas Stolz, Asset Management Kö-Bogen, was pleased with the visitors and convinced them with exciting insights into the history, urban development and diverse use of the EGS building Kö-Bogen in Düsseldorf.
