As a company, we feel the need to contribute to making the world a better place. Because we can make a difference—for people, society and nature. That’s why we continue to take new initiatives in the domain of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Guided by best-in-field partners like EcoVadis and Climate Neutral Group, we continue to grow our CSR efforts to the next level.
In 2021, we’ve been recognized with an EcoVadis Bronze Medal for our continuous efforts stemming from our long-term vision to achieve sustainable growth for the environment, society and business. With an overall score of 50 out of a 100, we’re among the top 50% of all companies already assessed by EcoVadis. This is something we are proud of and will continue to be of importance to us in the years to come.
Since 2018, we’ve undertaken steps to minimize our carbon footprint. Because the smaller this footprint, the more we spare our planet. In 2020, we started compensating our carbon footprint with Climate Neutral Group and were declared CO2 neutral! Compared to 2019, we reduced our carbon footprint with 73%. Our long-term goal is to reduce our CO2 emissions to zero, so we don’t have to compensate anymore.
We want to minimize our impact on the environment to spare our planet.
Our mobility policy fosters the use of public transportation and we minimize travels to clients and other offices.
All of our offices are paperless, which means we use digital signing to sign off agreements.
We offer a range of fair trade and biological products to reduce our carbon footprint and we separate our waste.
We believe in the power of sports to build coherent communities consisting of healthy and (therefore) happy people. We sponsor several local sports teams and we stimulate our employees to be actively engaged in sports.

Committed to making a positive impact on society, we sponsor several foundations and charities. Apart from specific charity support (see below), we also keep thinking of new ways to contribute to society—from our X-mas gifts wrapped by a sheltered workshop to a generous donation to Skate4air to raising 11,220 EUR for Help India Breathe in a flash auction.
Stichting Opkikker organizes fun events (Opkikkerdagen) for families with a sick child, so they can enjoy a worry-free day and recharge their batteries. We raise funds for this foundation by collecting and recycling old mobile phones and printer cartridges at our office in the Netherlands.
Digital artists find new ways to use technologies, and as such, are a big source of inspiration for businesses to solve challenges in innovative and unique ways. Creative Coding Utrecht embodies this view, as they make art through creative coding. And it happens to be that coding runs through our veins too, so this foundation is really close to our hearts.
We support the Red Cross because we believe we can make an impact together. As a Friend, we invest in smart and innovative solutions for people in disaster areas—making them less vulnerable to natural disasters. Every dollar we invest in preparing for a disaster saves 7 euros on average in emergency aid afterwards.
We sponsor Villa Clementina because of their unique inclusive daycare facility, providing care for children with and without disabilities. A beautiful concept that helps include disabled children in society.
