Sustainability

SUSTAINABILITY AT SATIS&FY

For us, sustainability should not be an abstract concept, but rather one filled with life. We therefore, review all facets of our actions and try to have a more sustainable effect. All our departments join forces to contribute to this effort.  In all our activities, we always aim to consider the environment, society, economy and culture.

SUSTAINABILITY THROUGHOUT OUR HISTORY

„Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs“ Brundtland-Bericht (UN) 1987

Sustainability has been a tradition we’ve adopted since 2008. All these years, and through many initiatives, we have acted responsibly both towards society and our employees. We let words follow action, sustainability can be practically approached and implemented. The ecologically correct and socially responsible execution of an event is paramount. But we also want to pursue our own activities in a sustainable way and demonstrate that we take responsibility for our employees, customers, suppliers and partners. Corporate responsibility and long-term practices have many facets for us.

If sustainability is to have an impact, it must permeate a company. We strive to achieve that every day.

AREAS OF ACTION IN OUR SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY

Our goal is the sustainable development of satis&fy AG in all areas and a long-term safeguarding of the jobs of our employees.

ECOLOGY AND CLIMATE PROTECTION

Ecology and climate protection are an essential part of what we do. We are aware that our activities have ecological effects on the environment. Because this is important to us, we began several years ago to put all our actions to the test, looking for ways to limit our consumption of resources, make better use of existing resources and identify potentially harmful environmental effects.

Our environmental policy

  • We strive to continuously improve our environmental performance.
  • We are committed to complying with all applicable legal provisions and their requirements relating to our environmental aspects.
  • We are committed to preventing environmental pollution.

Our environmental goals

From 2019 to 2030, we want to:

  • Halve, reduce and avoid our direct and indirect CO2 emissions before offset,
  • Consolidate the share of renewable energies in our power supply to 100%,
  • Stabilize the recycling rate of our waste to at least 90%,
  • Halve the use of resources in all areas,
  • Reduce water consumption by 30%,
  • Reduce the use of hazardous substances and their emissions by at least 75%.

AWARDS

Family friendliness excellence

On June 18th, 2015, we were recognized in Friedberg as a family-friendly company. We applied as a family-friendly company to the working group for professional re-entry in the district of Wetterau. We participated for the Karben location and won over the jury with our application (flexible working hours and working methods, home office, part-time work options for mothers and fathers, etc.). With the award, the working group wants to recognize and value good practices that make it easier to combine work and family life.

CERTIFICATIONS, AUDITS

Gemeinwohlbilanz

In 2013, we were the first company in the event industry to publish a public interest balance sheet. With this step we wanted to lead the company towards a sustainable future shaped by ethical and moral values.

You should know: Public balance sheets do not evaluate the financial aspects of a company, but rather test the “soft facts”. It is our aim to behave fairly, ecologically, cooperatively and in solidarity. The public balance sheet was an excellent way for us to measure ourselves, our products and our services and discover what is going well and what can be improved. The reporting process, with which we were breaking new ground, took seven months. Using 17 indicators, satis&fy was tested, among other things, for sustainability, occupational safety, health promotion, flexible working hours and models, equality, fair remuneration as well as internal participation and transparency.

The Common Good Balance is a voluntary report by companies on their contribution to the common good. The report is audited externally.

Certified quality


Since 2009, event technology companies can be certified by the German event technology test center DPVT according to the SR 6.0 industry standard. At the time, we were the first company in Germany to be certified. Since then we have been consistently certified in workplace and event safety. We have only just been awarded the quality Siegel again, which makes us proud.

With the certification we show our customers that we:

  • can guarantee safety in the successful planning and execution of your events,
  • comply with all required norms and quality standards,
  • work with qualified personnel and train them,
  • give them fair and expert advice and conduct events with the necessary expertise and care.
