We care about Our Planet

But "Our Planet" includes more than just the environmental component. “Our Planet" is also about the impact we can have on everything else outside of icapps' offices. Things like poverty, well-being, equal opportunity, education, etc. The goal of "Our Planet" is to decrease our negative impact and increase our positive impact. Through small and bigger actions and initiatives, we will set up over the years.

To strenghten our mission, we focus on 3 SDGs

A glance at some of the "Our Planet" initiatives

Electric

Go electric or go home

Just kidding... or are we?

We're encouraging our colleagues to drive electric. We offer alternatives for cars, as a mobility budget our colleagues can spend on train, bus, bicycles, ... A lot of our colleagues are driving electric, and we see a positive shift in the car orders.

Trees

Planting trees

We decided to give all of our employees a tree for Earth Day, that's already quite a forest. Other than that, our colleagues can choose to plant trees for their birthday and/or work anniversary instead of receiving a voucher to consume. That's a win-win! We baptized our first icapps forest to the icapps "Moja" forest. "Moja" means "one" in Swahili, the official language of Tanzania, where most of our trees have been planted. And you know what, our forest just keeps on growing, because every new employee, gets a tree for free.

Fair and sustainable Coffee

So far, we've been hooked on Nespresso, which is not all that bad because they have a sustainability program; they recycle their pads to make new ones and they even make bikes out of them, which is pretty cool. But still, there must be more sustainable ways to serve a good cup of coffee. And there must be more fair-trade coffee beans in the world than the ones we're using right now. So we're studying those to make the most sustainable and delicious coffee choice.

icapps on a sustainable mission, partnering up with Future Fit

“Our Planet” is one of icapps' strategic pillars, as it should be for any company. A fairly new but already very integrated pillar within our organization. "Our Planet" includes more than just the environmental component. “Our Planet" is also about the impact we can have on everything else outside of icapps' offices. Things like poverty, well-being, equal opportunity, education, etc. The goal of "Our Planet" is to decrease our negative impact and increase our positive impact.

Say it with a tree

Recently, we added the pillar “our planet” to the overall icapps strategy, and decided to focus on three different focal points. One of them is Climate Action (SDG 13) because we want to become more aware of our impact and take action to reduce our carbon footprint. We're happy to say that we already kicked off the first initiative within this particular focal point. From now on, every icappser gets the chance to plant trees for his or her birthday and/or work anniversary.

Happy Tree day!

Recently we started an initiative where our colleagues can choose to plant a tree for their birthday or work anniversary. This initiative is part of the pillar "Our Planet", one of the strategic pillars we launched to become more sustainable as a company. Two of our colleagues, Sjoera and Niels, decided to start planting trees for their birthday. They tell us all about their motivation and their trees.
