Citi announced the inauguration of its new headquarter offices in Bucharest, in proximity to Victoriei Square. Located in the central business district on Buzesti Street – Tiriac Tower office building, the new space enables Citi to create a modern office concept to accommodate hybrid ways of working and to meet its ambitious sustainability requirements.

 

The new office building is built and equipped according to the latest energy-saving standards. The project developer has implemented a holistic concept that includes all aspects of state-of-the-art sustainable building development and control. With measures such as rainwater recovery, energy-saving lighting as well as heating/ cooling/ ventilation control and green roof areas, the building benefits from the highest LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification level – Platinum. The building also has a Well Health-Safety Rating, an evidence-based third-party verified rating focused on operational policies, protocols and emergency plans to address a post-Covid 19 environment, as well as broader health and safety issues into the future.

“We at Citi are on a clear path to Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions of our own operations by 2030. Our new Romanian headquarters is an important step, as it combines the latest technologies for saving resources with a focus on well-being in the workplace. The new building offers our team of around 200 employees space for modern, flexible and hybrid working methods, space for creativity, collaboration and even quiet rooms” says Samir Karia, Citi Country Officer for Romania.

In addition to the excellent connection to the public transport network in the heart of Bucharest, the new building will offer e-charging stations and space for bicycle parking. In this way, Citi wants to make a more environmentally friendly way to work possible.

Citi was the first major US bank to announce and pursue a clear Net Zero strategy. In addition, even after the pandemic, Citi is focusing on significantly more flexibility for all employees and offers comprehensive hybrid working models.

Kristine Braden, Citi’s Head of Europe, who recently visited the local office for the inauguration of the space, commented:

“Citi Romania joins other important Citi branches in Europe who have recently announced either plans or actual moves to new, more sustainable office spaces, including in Milan, Paris and Frankfurt. Romania is a successful and important market for Citi in Europe and this new headquarter space will help us further enhance both the employee and client experience”.

Citi has been active in Romania since 1996. Citi serves approximately 200 million customer accounts worldwide and is active in near 160 countries and territories.

Țiriac Imobiliare acted as the project developer. The architects of the Citi space are AMA Design and Perkins&Will.
