We can – and should – care more for our planet.
To quote a certain much loved frog, “it’s not easy being green” – and as a company with international clients, we have certainly burnt our fair share of fossil fuels! 🙁 However, we try to offset our impact. Starting with choosing Berlin for our headquarters, in part because Berlin is a super friendly bicycle city, here are some of the ways we aim to run a sustainable business:
Decreasing our carbon footprint
Climate Change has for good reason been in the news of late – and we want to do our bit to help: On Thursday 6th June, we held a meeting of talks and discussion about climate change lead by Dr Kat Austen and Dr Carl Schleussner. The aim is to put companies who want to address client change in touch with experts who can help them do just that!
We’re planning a second event in the autumn.
Giving back to nature
Main office location
Our main office, which is located at the junction of Osloer Str 17 / Prinzenallee, is easy to get to without a car. Trams and buses stop in front of the building and nearby S- and U-Bahn stations guarantee good connections to almost every part of Berlin. Thus we almost always arrive at work by public transport, by bike or by foot.
As a company with international clients, long distance travel is inevitable for us so far. However, we take long distance train journeys in Europe when possible and when flying we offset the CO2.
Green-ish office building?
The building was built in 1928-29 according to plans by Hans-Heinrich Müller in reference to Schinkel brick buildings on behalf of Bewag which keeps our office warm in winter and cold in summer. Characteristic of the house are the towering long narrow windows that break through the arched building cornice with oriental pointed arches, creating a structured wreath on the simple facade surface which bringing lots of natural light during working hours.
This came into force in 2003 in Germany and regulate the sale and return of plastic and glass bottles, as well as aluminium cans. But our main motto is “Buy less plastic!“
We are currently working on ideas to improve our strategy and on how become a more environmentally friendly company. The aim of sustainable development is to balance our economic, environmental and social needs, allowing prosperity for now and future generations.
