We pay particular attention to the environmental challenges and follow the “precautionary principle” in conducting our business operations

We follow GreenIT concepts while
choosing equipment and infrastructure
for our offices by using:

We strongly believe that we can help in
improving environmental plus ecological
condition and help in preventing environment
from further deterioration. Thus, we:

  • save water and electricity by using common water filters and energy-efficient appliances and we avoid any harmful activities for the nature at our events

  • sort garbage by collecting glass, paper, plastic, used batteries and hardware into separate containers
