The technology we help our partners create enables many possibilities that make the world smarter and safer, but for us, protecting our planet’s environment has to come first. Sustainability is a big part of the “what” we’re reaching for each and every day.

We are committed to to managing our carbon footprint and our impact on every community where we do business. That means holding ourselves – and our partners – to the highest standards. We encourage manufacturers to make environmental information available on their websites and partner closely with suppliers to provide customers with all the proper information/declarations available from related manufacturers.

Environmental protection


We strive to use environmentally friendly methods for consumption and disposal of materials when performing our services.

Continual improvement

Through a process of continuous improvement in all business areas we will constantly increase the environmental compatibility of our services. The compliance of the legal provisions is standard.


Environmental protection is a leadership responsibility. We support the creativity of our employees by informing, educating and motivating them so that they can deal competently and responsibly with the interpretation of the environmental guidelines. 


The attainment of our environmental goals within the framework of the environmental management system will be regularly checked and the progress documented.


We encourage the environmental awareness of the society and seek open and factual dialog with the public. To this we inform our customers, suppliers and media about the environmental protection and also declare co-operation with authorities, associations and other institutions in these matters.
