Business and the environment.
Ecology and economics are inextricably linked, as demonstrated by the direct and indirect impact of business activity on the environment. This may result in costs that, in some cases, are borne not by the responsible entity, but by the entire community.
Our environmental management system.
Bechtle educates its employees about the ecological and economic consequences of resource consumption. Our environmental efforts are inspired by the well-known saying, “If you want something done right, you’ve got to do it yourself.” By implementing an ISO-14001-certified environmental management system, the Bechtle Group’s central subsidiary, Bechtle AG, has laid the groundwork for a structured approach to environmental management. We measure our environmental performance with the goal of limiting our resource consumption, emissions and any other negative environmental consequences.
Measurable environmental impact.
In addition to providing transparency, environmental indicators help us identify areas of improvement, develop a plan of action, monitor success and provide a concise, public account of our efforts and progress.
Preservation of natural resources.
Bechtle uses natural resources sparingly and prudently. We expect all of our employees to do their part, especially by limiting the use of lights, heating and air conditioning. In addition, we sort and recycle reusable material in order to preserve our planet’s resources. Large-scale publications are printed exclusively on FSC-certified paper from responsibly managed forests.
Reducing carbon emissions.
Bechtle supports carpooling, low-emission vehicles and other alternative means of transportation. Our employees are encouraged to use modern technology to travel efficiently and replace business trips whenever possible. Web-based training, for instance, is common at Bechtle. Likewise, video conferencing with platforms such as WebEx is also routinely used not only for collaborating with colleagues but also increasingly with customers.
Bechtle respects and adheres to all applicable environmental rules and regulations as a matter of course.
