As a company, we are committed to integrating leading environmental practices into our business strategy and operations to foster environmental awareness and responsibility among our employees, clients, suppliers, and our local communities. Our goal is to minimize our environmental impact to conserve natural resources, therefore nurturing a healthier planet for future generations.
Our commitment to the environment is reflected in our policies, programs, and practices for conducting operations in an environmentally, as well as economically, responsible manner. To fulfill this vision, we strive to stand by and to improve on the following commitments.
Our Key Priorities Are:
- Encourage environmental awareness among our team members. In this regard, we collaborate with local recycling organizations who help us to tailor internal awareness campaigns and initiatives.
- Develop internal environmentally-conscious programs and encourage our colleagues’ active contribution. One of our major programs is a 6-month engagement project focused on challenging our colleagues to use alternative transportation methods (walking, biking, running) in a gamified framework. We also offer a bicycle-friendly environment in all our offices.
Clients & Suppliers
- Take into consideration environmental factors when procuring goods and services (office supplies, furniture, branded items, etc.).
- We are expecting similar environmental standards from our clients and suppliers.
Environmental Management System
- Disposing of waste in a safe manner.
Energy & Emissions
- Reduce travel impact by using technology for collaboration and meetings, when possible.
- Reduce levels of energy consumption by using automated energy-saving systems for electricity and gas.

- Reduce use and encourage the recycling of consumables. We recycle paper, plastic, glass, used batteries, toners, waste products, and redundant items. In each of our offices, we implemented selective waste collection and we are focused on educating a recycling-friendly mindset among our colleagues.
- Stay committed to supporting our community and making a positive contribution to the environment around us.
