Nike European Logistics Campus offers a wide variety of sustainable features of which one of the most visually spectacular is the 1.3-km long green serpentine along the west facade. Probably the world's longest such hanging green façade it provides 3,000 sq m of green frontage which integrates 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 and a healthy and biodiverse environment, thus creating a benchmark for Nike."
