We pursue a sustainable company policy and are dedicated to the region. We protect the environment, promote sustainability and show social commitment by various measures and actions. This has been awarded by EcoVadis since 2018.
The Fokus Zukunft consulting company determined our climate impact for us and advised us on the purchase of a corresponding amount of climate protection certificates. With these certificates, we support a wind energy project in Mexico and a hydropower project in Brazil and were thus able to achieve climate neutrality by offsetting from the year 2022.
We are a supporter of the Alliance for Development and Climate and are helping to shape a better and more climate-friendly world. The ambitious avoidance and reduction of greenhouse gases and their high-quality offsetting is the central approach of all activities. The foundation has more than 1,400 supporters from business, industry, the public sector and civil society and is in partnership with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, which initiated the Alliance for Development and Climate in 2018.
Strong for environment and society
Thanks to the FIS “snack speedster”, our employees can do without their cars during lunch break and cycle to the bakery or supermarket.
The two biggest buildings at our headquarters were erected according to the Energy Saving Regulations 2016 (EnEV 2016). These energetic building requirements ensure a low consumption of operating materials.
For us, sustainability lies in the detail. Therefore, all our offices and meeting rooms are equipped with a small waste system for waste separation. There are special collection containers for batteries as well.
Our printer cartridges are collected in the “CaritasBox”. Together with a partner, Caritas treats these cartridges and uses the resulting revenues for social projects. Since 2006, more than EUR 700,000 have gone to social local projects owing to this action.
To conserve precious resources, we give our worn-out but yet functioning office furniture, building equipment and technology a second life by offering them to our employees.
At FIS, water is also available free of charge. Many water dispensers are available for refilling drink bottles so that the employees do not need to bring their own beverages. We offer returnable bottles in our meeting rooms.
We assume responsibility for society and support charitable social projects. Be it regional associations and organizations or international initiatives: we support the good cause throughout the year by specific donations.
There is a canteen for our employees at our Grafenrheinfeld location. This means that no one needs to worry about their food and produce additional packaging waste when preparing food.
FIS offers coffee made from whole beans. We do without polluting systems (capsules, pads) and ensure coffee pleasure with a clear conscience.
Several charging options for e-cars and e-bikes are available for our employees at the Grafenrheinfeld headquarters.
We promote the region as a sponsor of selected regional sport events.
FIS attaches great importance to the selection of regional vendors for events and campaigns. The fruit for our fruit days, for instance, comes from an orchardist on the river Main. We also select regional caterers, bands and further service providers for our summer and Christmas parties.
We rely, for instance, on renewable energy sources for the production of energy. With several thin-layer photovoltaic plants at the company’s headquarters in Grafenrheinfeld, we consciously set an example for climate protection. Since the last expansion of the plants, FIS has had more than 3,000 m² of photovoltaic modules, which stand for environmentally friendly energy production. Have a look at the power outputs of our photovoltaic plant.
