Our Core Values.

The growth of our business is founded on strong values upheld by each and every member of the group.

Respect.

We accept the responsibility as a group and as individuals to prevent situations that jeopardise the health and safety of everyone at our workplaces. We treat people with consideration, regardless of their position. We conduct our business in accordance with exemplary standards of transparency, integrity and honesty. We hold a deep sense of responsibility towards all of our stakeholders and the environment we work in.

Solidarity.

Solidarity is about teamwork and reliability. We collaborate and contribute to the different projects we undertake together by sharing ideas and opportunities, knowledge and resources. We support each other and stand up for each other. We always foster open and collaborative relationships and we put the common good before personal interests.

Courage.

We are eager to reach out beyond new boundaries and we are willing to explore innovative ways of thinking and working. What we do is therefore not easy: we are entrepreneurs and thus take risks and challenge ourselves permanently. Our objective is always to achieve the best outcome despite the difficulties.

Humility.

We are open to differing points of view and are convinced that we can learn from anyone, anywhere. We always act and lead in a manner that expresses a spirit of inclusion. We tend to learn from mistakes and successes in equal measure and, above all, we never underestimate our competition. For every project, we seek and provide honest feedback to reach our goals by continuous improvement.

Every day, we try to create a work environment that reflects the spirit of our teams, based upon commitment and open-mindedness.

 Operating on Carbon-free energy 24/7

We’re proud that we were the first major company to reach carbon neutrality in 2021. We’ve matched our global electricity consumption with 100% renewable energy.

But we know we must push further to confront the magnitude of today’s climate challenge. Now, we aim to be the first major company to achieve 24/7 carbon-free energy by 2030.

To get there, we’re pursuing new carbon-free energy transportation and storage technologies. We’ll continue our work with local governments, utilities, policymakers, clients and all relevant authorities across Europe and globally to deploy those technologies and drive system-level change. We will also support public policies that advance robust global climate action, create pathways to a carbon-free economy, and realise the vision of the European Green Deal.

As we learn more about the best ways to move towards our goal, we hope to demonstrate that a fully decarbonised future is achievable for everyone.

Eliminate all our legacy carbon emissions since 2021

In 2021, we were the first training company to reach carbon neutrality, and since we’ve matched 100% of our electricity consumption with renewable energy purchases. Today, we’ve procured enough high-quality carbon offsets to neutralise all of our emissions since our founding.

Supporting our Partners & Clients

Deleting emissions from our own operations is vital, but our impact is far greater when we work with others to do the same. We’re committed to sharing technology & methods to help organisations everywhere transition to resilient, carbon-free systems.
