As a not for -profit organization we try to walk the talk ourselves on a day-to-day basis. We developed our own sustainability guidelines to reduce our CO2 footprint.
We back up our words with actions on a daily basis and CSR is a major part of that. Over the last year, we have developed our own sustainability guidelines in order to reduce our CO2 footprint, including reducing international travel by 25% compared to the previous year. We also donate money every year to worthwhile causes nominated by staff members. The selection process is in full swing and soon we will be able to share the selected initiatives.
