Since the start, we strive to remain an environmentally aware company. With having more than 300 employees, a lot of different waste is being produced every day. By taking different measures, we strive to fulfill diverse social responsibilities in our everyday activities.
Deforestation is one of the main environmental problems we’re facing in these times. 14% of all global wood harvest is used to make paper. From 2011, designated cardboard boxes are put across our company hallways for collecting paper, everything from old newspapers, magazines, paper flyers, brochures, letters and envelopes, writing paper and notebooks, as well as the paper destroyed in the shredder.
Batteries contain a number of heavy metals and toxic chemicals and disposing them by the same process as regular trash has raised concerns over soil contamination and water pollution. Apart from collecting old paper, we made another green step forward so our employees are collecting old, empty batteries that must be collected separately from municipal waste to recover all valuable raw materials from them by recycling. The metal needed for batteries production cadmium, cobalt and lead is harmful both for us and the planet. When the batteries are dumped or disposed of in the ground, these metals can get into air, soil, groundwater and eventually enter our body. Therefore, all sorts of batteries from mobile phones, laptops, digital cameras and other gadgets are disposed of appropriately, so that their metal can be recycled and reused in new batteries’ production
In 2017, our company managed to collect 4210 kilos of paper and 30 kilos of old batteries that are later being collected by specialised company and sent to recycling.
Standing up for nature and environment will be our path for the future and in 2018 we’ll strive to collect and recycle even more as environmental pollution be prevented.
