Public reporting on sustainability measures and progress

Energy consumption
Our offices are in a renovated building. We do not have or use air conditioning or any other such device. Instead, our offices are heated or cooled by a system of water tubes and pumps that pump the water around the building, forming a closed and sustainable low energy consumption system for heating and cooling the offices.
Lights and computers are strictly switched off after office hours by the last person that leaves the office. We only use LED lights in our offices.
 
Paper usage
We rarely print promotional materials, and if we do, it is in a limited amount, on FSC paper by inhouse copy machines. We have a policy of limiting printing usage to a minimum.

Water consumption
Only tap water is used in the office. Water consumption is minimal and limited to personal use in the kitchen and toilets.

Waste policy
Waste disposal in the company is done in a way that all the waste is separated to be recycled. We have separate bins for each of the following wastes such as plastic, bio, paper and glass.

HR
Our company complies with a sector-wide collective labour working conditions and the national legislation. All employees have an employment contract, including labour conditions and a job description.

Partners
We favour suppliers that offer sustainable local products that can be verified as such and proposed to our clients as examples of businesses that help develop the local community
