Sustainability Story

Reducing business travel to cut emissions, while also saving time and money, is in our DNA as a leading video conferencing company. But we came to a point where we wanted to do more, together with our partners and customers. So it was clearly an important step when Konftel was the first company in the collaboration devices sector to earn official Climate Neutral certification. Naturally our sustainability work needs to include even more aspects. More than 15 years ago we built our first Environmental Policy, focusing on product design and the supply chain. Today we are part of the Responsible Business Alliance through our parent company, to make sure we follow Codes for Conduct regarding our responsibility as an employer and product manufacturer.
