Most of this should go without saying or without requiring a page in this Handbook. However, we want to make sure we please Greta Thunberg. Have you seen her mad face? Scary stuff!

And also, she should be back in school by now, had we all done the right thing. Let's give her a ticket there, then. A train one because planes are filthy.

We agree with Greta, though: the planet is at risk, and it's everyone's responsibility to (at least) attempt to make mends.

Greta’s honourable mission aside, we take this topic and the responsibility towards it very seriously. It is an integral part of how we carry ourselves.

At Significa, we are committed to minimising our footprint through a set of initiatives we've been putting in place over the years. The element of responsibility in Maximum freedom, maximum responsibility goes beyond our work, our office, and our team. It must also relate to the wider world and to our efforts to ensure we are both responsible and accountable for our actions towards our planet, both by doing and giving.


Small stuff matters, such as how we bin things. We've equipped every sitting area with recycling bins to facilitate it. Now, there are no excuses, not even laziness, really.

Limited company travel.

We limit the usage of heavy-pollutant transportation modes in favour of the more environmentally friendly ones.

Planet Mark.

In 2023, having already implemented a number of small, energy-efficient changes to our office and operations, we decided that we must do more to minimise our impact on the planet. We became a Planet Mark member to accurately measure our footprint and target further impact.

Our commitment.

With all these actions, we are hoping to get Greta's green thumb.
