The Sustainability Report is the annual sustainability logbook of the Peerigon Sustainability Passion Group. Every year, we collect and evaluate company-related data on the topic of sustainability. What's it good for, you ask? To establish our guidelines and sharpen our critical eye. To continue to operate successfully as a responsible company in the future. And to discover opportunities for more room for improvement. Have a look!
The Initiative JobRad aims to create incentives in Germany to cycle to work. It is low-emission and good for the environment, fun and keeps you fit. In 2019, we took advantage of bike leasing with four registered bikes in the second year. We've also been pedalling collectively: As part of the campaign "Stadtradeln" 2019, nine of us covered more than 1000 kilometres in July. Thus, we were able to avoid 145.6 kg of CO2 in 3 weeks.
In recent years, we have ordered hundreds of cases of bottled water throughout the year (and supported initiatives such as Viva Con Aqua). Then came 2019, Augsburg became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And we switched to tap water - bottled and sparkling! This allowed us to reduce our drink orders to a minimum. Not enough? Three more reasons why we are tap water fans:
In close cooperation with the local delivery service Boxbote, we tried out Tiffin boxes for our regular lunch orders as a pilot project. And found them to be good. Instead of cardboard boxes and Styrofoam, our food now comes in reusable stainless steel boxes. With Boxbote, which delivers mainly by bicycle, we are now also reducing packaging waste in this area.
We work with time budgets, a lot. Every Peeri gets a dedicated budget for training and sports. But how much do I have left? Do I currently have overtime? Oh, and how do these budgets change when I work part-time? Using the API of our time tracking tool and the micro-frontends architecture we built ourselves a dedicated place to find answers to these and more questions. Born as a master thesis project the dashboard has become an important tool for employees to control their individual time budgets. But please excuse me now, I have to go out for a run in the woods!
