Originally, Ascora was located in Oldenburg. When it came time to expand, it was carefully decided that we would move into the countryside near Ganderkesee. One benefit of this area is its proximity to nature. Finally, in 2011, we’ve found the right property, an extraordinary location which would promise a peaceful, unique work place, and epitomize our company culture.
Our main building forms a harmonic symphony with the existing land. Amazingly, it’s nearly completely biodegradable. It’s also nearly 100% self-sufficient, because it has its own eco-friendly sewage disposal facility, which works by ducting rain water through ponds. Furthermore, chives living on top of the building take care of its insulation.
The company management set an eco-friendly precedent from the beginning, and maintains it by annually buying trees that keep co2 emissions almost zero.
