We believe that companies should act responsibly in terms of environmental protection and resource usage. Areas where Profinit has already implemented environmental policy are waste management and sustainable consumption, the reduction of paper usage in regular business, and the reduction of our carbon footprint (by reducing travel, using an office building that is ecological).
Every day, waste is sorted by material—paper, glass, plastics, and household waste—by employees who place it in separate bins. As far as electronic waste, Profinit has had a contract with REMA Systém, a.s. since August 23, 2016 to participate in the project “ZELENÁ FIRMA”, which can be translated as “GREEN FIRM”. As part of the contract, REMA keeps a box at Profinit for the collection of electronic waste and regularly collects waste such as batteries and light components. Larger devices are collected upon request.
Profinit has established paperless internal processes wherever possible and permitted by law, particularly in (but not limited to) the areas of:
- Requests/approvals for internal IT services (Internal Bugzilla)
- CRM processes (Profis)
- Time sheets, vacation requests and approvals (Profis)
- Electronic pay slips (distributed by e-mail)
- Business travel planning
Profinit’s Intranet uses the Confluence system and contains a complete library of documents, internal rules guidelines, etc.
All project, marketing, and sales documentation is stored in the central electronic document repository.
Paperless External Communication
Profinit uses electronic means of documentation and communication with customers and other subjects where agreed upon and permitted by law. An example is the use of external Bugzilla for recording requests, bugs, and issue tracking.
Profinit has replaced all water coolers using bottled water with water dispensers that use tap water, thus reducing the impact of transportation and packaging.
To reduce business travel, Profinit routinely uses video or audio conferencing. We use GoToMeeting, Skype, and WebEx technologies.
When replacing our “shareable” company cars two years from now, Profinit plans to choose cars with minimal or zero emissions (hybrid or electric) from those that are available on the Czech market at the time.
Our new office space is at the International Business Centre (IBC) Praha 8, Pobrežni 620/3. The IBC building housing the new Profinit office, planned for up to 70 people, has received a BREEAM In-Use certificate for part 1, asset performance, after being assessed in regards to health & wellbeing, energy, transport, water, materials, waste, land use & ecology, and pollution, with an overall rating of “very good” at 58.4%.
