MakoLab. Making Łódź greener

As a company, we operate in full awareness of the fact that our business decisions have a real impact on the world around us. Łódź is our city. It is close to our hearts. We care about it, contribute what we can to its systematic development and are always happy to join prosocial initiatives run by the local authorities and NGOs. One example is a project where companies in the Łódź fund the creation of oases of greenery in the city’s squares. We are proud to be a part of it!

At MakoLab, we are committed to making Łódź greener and fighting concretisation. We have a sense of responsibility towards the environment and ‘do our bit’ for sustainable development and the health and well-being of our fellow residents. The square in front of our offices is being transformed into a green enclave and, with three hundred square metres now given over to flora, the amount of planting has already outstripped our boldest expectations.

We decided to take one of the islands of green on Wielka Orkiestra Świątecznej Pomocy Square under our wing because we identify completely with the idea of introducing greenery into the urban space and we’re right behind any initiative that’s designed to improve the comfort of life in Łódź. The junction of ulica Zachodnia and ulica Ogrodowa, is now undoubtedly one of our city’s landmarks and for us here, at MakoLab, it’s a view from the windows of our headquarters at number 8 Ogrodowa. As an IT company, we provide state-of-the-art solutions for businesses that make user comfort their priority. As residents of Łódź, it’s important to us to live and work in an urban space that pleases the eye. We’re delighted to be able to play an active part in making that happen.

MakoLab has taken on seventeen square metres of the square and our involvement has allowed the city authorities to plant sixty-six shrubs, fifty-four grasses and one hundred and forty flowering plants there. We believe that our flowerbed will gladden the eyes not only of our staff, but also of everyone who passes by. We are also convinced that it will enhance their sense of well-being, since swathes of greenery like that act to reduce stress levels, providing a vision of calm, while the gentle, whispering rustle of the leaves has a soothing effect. Let it be a shared, green space for us all!
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges we are facing today. We have faith that we, the people of Łódź, will find a way through it and emerge unscathed. When it comes to transforming the fantastic projects our city authorities come up with into reality, MakoLab needs no persuading! Browse through our gallery to see some of the results for yourself.
