Making our business environmentally friendly is more than just a buzz term.
To reduce our impact on the environment we are always aiming to find new ways to decrease the environmental footprint and implement a waste management strategy.
Our effort to lower the effect of our business on the environment comprises different challenges that cover every aspect of our field: our exploration of new products and technologies, and our role as an enabler for individuals and communities to learn about and improve the natural world around us.
