But we’ve taken further steps to ensure that we are doing all we can to sustain — and improve — the environment.

Energy Conservation

To spearhead this initiative we have:

  • Installed energy saving bulbs the offices.
  • Implemented the use of eco-friendly computer hardware, motion sensor lighting, and a heat recovery system
  • Put up large windows to supply adequate lighting, thus reducing the need to use artificial lighting during the day.

Paper use reduction. 

In an effort to reduce the amount of paper waste, we communicate with customers and employees online as much as possible. We provide customers with online documentation and support, and provide employees with news and information through a company intranet. When we have to use paper in the office we recycle, our paper for internal communication. We also print only on econo-mode for internal use.
