Careful management of our environment and natural resources is the cornerstone of our business. Our main focus here is on employee mobility and energy consumption by our internal and operational business.
All our actions have little impact if we do not handle our environment carefully. At the end our measures aim to develop a better awareness towards our environment. We achieve that by directly through our thoughtful economic activities and indirectly by creating incentives for our employees as well as for our business partners to act more environmentally friendly.
We want to reduce our carbon footprint. Among other things, we achieve this through measures regarding to our employee mobility. We subsidize our employees at our headquarters in Hamburg with monthly passes for public transport and we do not offer company cars. In addition, our servers for the XING platform in Amsterdam are powered by 100% green electricity and many of our locations are already converted to green electricity. Our employees working in Germany are also required to adhere to a travel policy prescribed by XING. So they check before business trips to what extent they can be replaced by video and telephone conferences.
Please find more information about our actions regarding a sustainable and respectful management of the environment in our 2018 CSR Report.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about Corporate Social Responsibility at XING.
