WHERE RECRUITMENT & SUSTAINABILITY MEET

OUR COMMITMENT

To SOCIAL, SOCIETAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY

At AVANTGARDE Experts, sustainability is so much more than a mere word. As a leading HR service provider, we make a real difference by offering candidates future-proof jobs in the tech and digital sectors and by taking concrete steps to make our society and environment more sustainable.

To our minds, active sustainability management also means taking on responsibility for our customers and candidates. Our services are already carbon neutral, and we ensure that our business relationships remain sustainable even in the face of increasing legal requirements. It is also very important to us as an HR service provider that new business partners and companies we chose to work with share our sustainability values.

This way, we can make a real contribution to sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work. We see sustainability not as a goal, but as a process and a long-term project. And it’s a project we’re passionate about.

MAKING A POSITIVE IMPACT

OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT: CLEAN AND GREEN 

Together with the sustainability consultancy sustainable, we have calculated our carbon footprint and devised measures to reduce and offset our carbon emissions. One of these measures involves supporting sustainable environmental projects, which led to our company becoming carbon neutral in 2020.

AVANTGARDE Experts - Carolin Schemer

Sustainability is no longer just about being carbon neutral and ensuring fair working conditions. Rather, it means that companies should set an example and raise awareness of the topic among their employees. That’s why we’ve taken a holistic approach to sustainability – a concept that drives all aspects of our day-to-day work as an HR service provider. At AVANTGARDE Experts, we believe that this transformation offers opportunities and are convinced that it is not about sacrifices but, rather, about finding new ways to do things and driving solutions.

FAQ: Sustainability & Environment - Let's talk about CSR

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR for short) describes the responsibility a company has for its environmental and social impacts. It includes all environmental, social and economic aspects of a business, such as environmental protection, climate action, judicious use of natural resources, social commitments and an employee-centric culture.

CSR is a voluntary commitment that goes beyond legal requirements, offering our company the opportunity to do more for the environment and society than is required by law. In taking on this commitment, we are pursuing further social goals and setting important standards for sustainability in the area of human resources. This is our way of making social responsibility a priority.

To us, doing business in a sustainable way means using raw materials and other natural resources in a way that respects the environment and future generations. Their potential for development should not be lessened by what we do in our business as an HR services provider.

Companies like AVANTGARDE Experts take on social and environmental responsibility in a number of areas: 

  • Measures to protect the environment and the planet (making efficient use of energy and resources, using renewable energies, active environmental management, etc.)
  • Employee-centric policies (work/life balance, flexible working hours, diversity, equality, inclusion, etc.) 
  • Commitments to greater social equality and ensuring integration and participation of disadvantaged groups
