  • We use energy-efficient devices - and of course, we switch them off when not used.
  • We are located close to powerful public transportation lines.
  • We do our best to make videoconferencing work as smooth as possible. A good videoconference can be very efficient and save thousands of kilometres travelled.
  • If travelling by train takes less than 3 hours longer than flying, then we travel by train.
  • We are convinced that avoiding and minimizing CO2 emissions is best. The CO2 emissions which we caused when using a plane are compensated by donations to CO2-friendly projects.
