Carbon Footprint

N&D designed their new headquarters building to maximize energy efficiency and reduce their impact on the environment. A 208-panel photovoltaic array was installed on the roof, producing up to 90 kWh of electricity.

Energy consumption for July 2022 in the new, larger building was reduced by more than 60% compared to July 2019.
