Environmentally friendly approach

As lessees of the Eiffel Palace we are working in Eastern Europe's most environmentally friendly office building. Moreover, we strive to be environmentally friendly in transport: we support the fight against air pollution and the reduction of urban noise. We have begun using electric vehicles for business travel in the city and surroundings. We have two Nissan Leaf cars that are considered to be the world’s first mass-produced, fully electric vehicles. We charge the two vehicles with electric speedloaders in our office building's garage.

The ambassadors nicknamed "Csodabogarak" take part in two or three races each year to raise funds for the children who are supported by the foundation.

 

Charity sales

Before Christmas we bring in the holiday atmosphere by organising a Christmas market. Every day between the 8th and 12th of December employees of various foundations sell their products and the money goes to charities.

Who were these organisations?

WWF - Earth Hour movement

Our firm also took part in the earth hour movement, as we believe environmental protection to be a vital issue. As a result, we switched off the office building' lights and we also encouraged our staff to join the movement.
