This certification is the main goal of our gait. A complete review of how we operate. This type of management provides tools in order to determine the impacts of our acitivities, to assess these impacts and find solutions to reduce them. The ideal solutions are obviously not always feasible, but we have here to find a middle ground and to be consistent about our primary mission : to facilitate the integration of young graduates in the business world.
The environmental management system put in place according to this strandard has allowed us to better understand the impact of our activities. It became clear that the biggest impact was the greenhouse gas emissions due to transport, logistical operation and communications.
As this cannot be reduced we opted for compensation.
The scheme proposed consists of reducing CO2 emissions offsite to compensate for our own emissions so that the net impact is zero. This is made possible by sponsoring a sustainable development project in a developing country.
It became fair that the Forum EPFL participants are asked. Based on our carbon assessment we propose the stand "0 emissions." In practice,each company is asked to pay 30 CHF more, calculated on the basis of our carbon footprint made by our partner Swiss Climate . This amount will be entirely donated for the compensation project . This additional cost will offset all emissions the company averages.
