The EcoCommercial Building Project, prepared in partnership with Cushman & Wakefield, integrates global actions of Bayer for environmental preservation. The initiative allows construction of buildings able to operate with lower consumption of natural resources, adapted to weather conditions in any place worldwide. In this
sense, innovative materials and technologies are applied, providing renewable energy sources, treatment and reuse of rainwater, higher energy efficiency, among other solutions. The EcoCommercial Building Brasil Program started in 2012, with the implementation of an Excellence Center, in support of professionals and companies
interested in sustainable buildings. In the same year, Bayer announced, in São Paulo, the construction of the first
ECB in Latin America. Buildings like the ECB in São Paulo can be also found in Germany, Belgium, China, USA, India and Thailand. In the country, the ECB serves as a living space for its 2,000 supporters, being able to host visitors, training courses and sustainable construction events.
Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova was built on the very site of the former arena, demolished in 2010. The building was delivered in 2013 to host the Confederations Cup in Bahia. C&W was hired by Odebrecht and OAS for

The building, comprised of 17 floors with corporate rooms of up to 560 m² private area, was developed with focus on building comfort, technology and practicality. The project owner BP Empreendimentos has hired C&W for the LEED Certification Consultancy. The Mariano Torres729 Corporate is the first LEED GOLD CS certified building in southern Brazil.
Philips believes a good working environment should provide comfort, practicability and freedom, so as to render its employees more creative and efficient. So, in 2009, the Philips Workplace Innovation (WPI) program was created, to turn the company into a better place to work in. The WPI principles: shared space, flexibility, mobility and sustainability. In order to spread the new concept, every new employee, as soon as integrated in the company, is given a notebook and a mobile. This way, anyone can work anywhere. Moreover, different on-line resources are made available for professionals to remain connected with customers and other Philips employees worldwide.
