Climate Positive Company Since 2021
Our company was climate positive for the first time in 2021. As part of a climate project in collaboration with the University of Applied Sciences in Konstanz, Germany, we calculated our carbon footprint, implemented concrete savings and implemented offsets.
Additionally planned measures: Emissions will be reduced to a minimum in the years to come. Business trips will be replaced to the greatest possible extent by remote maintenance and online conferences – after the pandemic as well – and air travel will be avoided. Offerings for employee tickets for public transportation and leased company bicycles will be expanded. SmartOffice solutions (heating, lighting) and other energy-saving measures are currently being evaluated.
Positive Climate Balance Sheet by 2021
We are conducting a scientifically monitored climate project together with the University of Applied Sciences in Konstanz, Germany (HTWG).
During the initial phase our CO2 footprint will be determined together with students under the direction of Professor Dr. Maike Sippel, Senate Commissioner for Sustainable Development at the University of Applied Sciences in Konstanz. We have already generated savings and implemented concrete measures for the company’s routine daily operations, and further action is currently in preparation. For example, in addition to the most significant issues such as electrical power, mobility and heating, everyday factors such as meals, catering and paper consumption will be scrutinized and gradually optimized in order to reach the goal of a positive climate balance sheet for combit in 2021.
Climate protection in everyday office life
In the software development industry, electricity consumption is generally pretty high. For this reason, we desided to exclusively use eco-friendly power and support renewable energy systems.
Green Data Center
Server capacity requires storage space, which requires electricity. Our website is hosted by OHV and Wortmann, two ecologically responsible hoster. Water and air cooling mean that almost no air-conditioning systems are required.
We offer green options for many of our products and services – enabling customers to download software instead of having a DVD shipped, and providing online training in place of on-site visits.
Entrepreneurs for Future
“… environmentally friendly business practices are already viable today. Lots of innovative technologies, products, services and business models are available now for improved climate protection. But a more comprehensive political framework will finally be necessary in order to create fair competitive conditions for environmentally friendly technologies and business models, and to change the course of the economy as a whole.”
At combit, we want to give something back. In addition to making donations in response to specific events, we provide ongoing support in the form of sponsorship. This is more direct, more personal. It may be a small contribution, but we hope it will encourage others to follow suit.
We have been sponsoring two Zambian children, Wyclif and Joyce, through Plan International Germany since 2005. After the typhoon disaster in the Philippines in late 2013, we have also decided to sponsor two Filipino children in the disaster-struck area. Plan works in 50 developing countries to promote child rights, and lift millions of children out of poverty.
combit supports organizations or projects with donations regularly. In the case of save-me Konstanz combit employees have donated their working hours. This was converted into a sum of money and doubled by management. The total of 12,500 euros will be used to help refugees with the organization of their everyday life in completely new surroundings.
Donation for e-mobility
The delivery service of the Pestalozzi children’s and youth village Wahlwies, “Pestalozzi brings bio”, focuses on e-mobility. From January 2020, customers within a radius of about 30 kilometers will be served by the new e-transporter. We have already supported the youth welfare institution on several occasions – now with a donation for the purchase of the transporter. The combit team is also happy to receive fresh fruit from Pestalozzi every week at the Constance weekly market.
