Visable's sustainability initiatives
Visable compensates the CO2 emissions caused by travel of its employees and advisory board members
Disappearing glaciers, rising sea levels, increase in extreme weather phenomena such as hurricanes, floods and droughts, and rising temperatures around the globe - the climate crisis shows that the increasingly rapid CO2-induced climate changes can only be countered by working together.
As a growing company with three locations (Hamburg, Berlin and Paris), which also advises its customers locally, the Visable GmbH has a special responsibility. We are aware of this responsibility and want to live up to it. Therefore, all our colleagues are encouraged to avoid air travel if possible and to use the railway instead, which in Germany also runs on green electricity.
In addition, we have compensated the CO2 emissions caused by business travel by all Visable employees for the year 2019. This includes all flights, all car mileage and rail travel outside Germany. Thus, for the year 589 tons of CO2 were compensated through certificates from myclimate, supporting the climate protection project "With energy-saving and solar cookers back to the green island, Madagascar".
Visable will continue to compensate the entire CO2 emissions caused by its business traffic in 2020 and has also set itself the additional goal of reducing its power consumption by ten percent in 2020 despite the company's growth. This value is part of the company's objectives.
Peter F. Schmid, CEO of Visable, is also a member of "Leaders for Climate Action".
