At TECKpert, we are committed to minimizing our environmental impact and promoting sustainable practices. As a remote-first and technology-driven company, we recognize the importance of responsible environmental stewardship. This Sustainability Policy outlines our dedication to sustainable practices and reducing our carbon footprint.
TECKpert operates as a remote-first company, encouraging our employees to work from their home offices or remote locations. By minimizing the need for daily commutes, we aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to improved air quality. This approach also supports a healthier work-life balance for our team members, leading to increased productivity and job satisfaction.
We have adopted a paperless policy throughout the organization to reduce our reliance on paper and promote a more environmentally friendly workplace. This includes, but is not limited to:
a. Digital Documentation: All internal communications, documents, and records will be maintained in digital formats, reducing the need for printing and physical storage.
b. E-Signatures: We require the use of electronic signatures for contracts, agreements, and other official documents to eliminate paper waste.
c. Digital Collaboration: Meetings, presentations, and collaborative efforts will primarily be conducted using digital tools and platforms, minimizing the need for printed materials.
While we operate as a remote-first company, we understand that some physical office spaces may be required. For these instances, we are committed to maintaining an energy-efficient workspace by:
a. Energy Conservation: Implementing energy-saving practices, such as turning off lights and electronics when not in use, and optimizing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems for efficiency.
b. Sustainable Equipment: Procuring energy-efficient office equipment and appliances to reduce energy consumption and waste.
c. Renewable Energy: Whenever possible, we will seek office spaces powered by renewable energy sources to support the transition to a low-carbon economy.
We believe in partnering with suppliers and vendors who share our commitment to sustainability. We will prioritize environmentally responsible products and services, seeking those with eco-friendly packaging, minimal waste, and sustainable sourcing.
TECKpert is proud to offer all of its workers, including both contract and non-contract employees, one paid volunteer day per year. This initiative allows our team members to actively participate in community service or charitable activities of their choice, supporting causes that matter most to them including those that create a positive environmental impact.
We will regularly review and assess our sustainability initiatives to identify areas for improvement and set new, ambitious goals. Feedback from our employees, clients, and stakeholders will be valued as we strive to enhance our sustainability efforts continually.
TECKpert’s commitment to sustainability is not just a policy; it is a value that guides our actions and decisions. By being a remote-first company, adopting paperless practices, and maintaining an energy-efficient office when needed, we are determined to make a positive impact on the environment and lead by example within our industry. Our collective efforts will contribute to a more sustainable future for all.
This policy will be communicated to all employees and made publicly available to demonstrate our unwavering dedication to sustainability.
