Sustainability Commitment

We care about being responsible to each other and being good stewards to the earth. We want to leave our planet to future generations in a better state than where it is today. We envision a world where we can live well and healthy, but where we live in harmony with all of our surroundings.

Jörg Walden, CEO

Our work: Our vision to create a change for the sake of our environment is reflected in every aspect of our software. Our tools are rich enough to be used within the most complex and demanding corporation and their products, but accessible in cost and presentation for the smallest company in a supply chain. We recognize that software must be very easy and satisfying for users to transition towards a new way of doing business, and we believe we’ve created that software. Our software solutions provide access to alternative “green” product components so that choices can be made without being a compliance expert, all while automating as many processes as we can. We strive to provide services and solutions that make “sustainability” a tangible and doable goal for our customers.

 

Our community: We show our commitment to social responsibility through our company practices. We provide a safe, healthy and sustainable working environment for our staff and our customers. We deal ethically and responsibly with our customers and suppliers. Our employees are all trained and informed on our corporate values and policies so that as a company we can better practice social and environmental responsibility.

 

Our environment: We show our stewardship to the environment through our corporate practices, from minimizing waste through recycling, to working with suppliers who, where possible, have sound environmental values and practices for improved energy efficiency and conservation.

 

Together with our commitment to our employees, to our customers, and to the solutions we create, we are excited about the possibilities we offer. We believe that with our customers and partners, sustainable products and social responsibility practices can truly become tangible and achievable.

 

Thanks,

Jörg Walden, CEO
