Owen Zachariasse is the Manager of Innovation and Sustainability at Delta, a small sustainable building company with the goal of being ‘the greenest developer”. It’s a bold ambition, so we decided to talk to Owen to dig a little deeper.
Delta started in 1998 and has always been a family owned and operated business. Their own sustainably built offices are located in the innovative development Park 2020 near Amsterdam’s Schipol airport.
We began by asking Owen what drives him. “We’ve always aimed to be the top ‘cradle to cradle’ developer in the Netherlands,” he told us, “It’s important to be authentic and we use our business to enact our vision.”
Authenticity to Owen is all about people, “We are all human beings!” he smiles, “We’re in the people business - we just happen to make office buildings.”
