HB Reavis, an international workspace provider, has recently signed a renewal lease agreement with Ørsted. Global leader in offshore wind farms has extended its current office footprint and expanded it with a further 2,355 sq. m. The one of the world’s most sustainable energy companies will now occupy a total of 7,160 sq. m of space in Varso 2 building.
Ørsted is the world's largest and most experienced developer of offshore wind farms with over 30 years of experience. Originating from Denmark, the global leader in the offshore market currently operates in several markets, including the United States, several countries in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. Ørsted is a global leader in climate action and is the only energy company in the world with a science-based net-zero emission goal endorsed by the Science Based Targets (SBTi) initiative. Poland is one of the key markets for Ørsted, where the company already employs over 650 people in its Warsaw office. Ørsted supports the green transformation of Poland by investing together with PGE in the Baltica Offshore Wind Farm with a capacity of 2.5 GW.
The Warsaw office exemplifies Ørsted's vision striving to build a world powered only by renewable energy sources. Based on the idea of less waste the workspace reduces negative environmental impact through the use of biodegradable or recyclable materials.

Natural greenery is ever-present here – 1752 individual plants have been used reaching a factor of four plants per each employee.
Among the most sustainable office buildings in Poland, Varso 2 employs environmentally focused solutions to reduce carbon footprint and maximise resources.
