Spryker's Environmental Vision

Sprykees care about the future of our planet.

Introduction to Spryker's Sustainability Vision

Our Environmental Promise

At Spryker, we’re deeply committed to looking after our planet. We understand that every business decision we make can impact the environment, so we're dedicated to making choices that help, not harm. This means we do more than just follow environmental laws and rules – we try to do better whenever we can.

Going Above and Beyond

We're not just meeting environmental standards; we're setting new ones. Our goal is to lead by example in the tech world, showing that it’s possible to be successful while still caring for our planet.

Our Green Goals

Here’s what we’re focused on:

  • Lowering Our Environmental Footprint: We’re working hard to reduce the harmful gases we release, use less energy and water, produce less waste, and avoid dangerous materials.
  • Encouraging Green Choices: We want sustainability to be part of everything we do, from the products we use to the partners we work with.
  • Always Getting Better: We regularly check how we’re doing and look for ways to improve. This might mean trying out new technologies or changing how we do things.
  • Sharing Our Knowledge: We believe that everyone has a role to play in protecting the environment. That’s why we’re committed to teaching our team, our customers, and our partners about environmental issues. We encourage everyone to make choices that are good for the planet.

Together Towards a Greener Future

For us at Spryker, caring for the environment is a journey we’re all on together. Every step we take to reduce our impact on the planet is important. Our dedication to a sustainable future stays strong as we continue to grow and innovate. We’re excited to lead the way in making the tech industry more environmentally friendly.

Environmental Benefits of Spryker's FLOW and Hybrid Work Culture

Giving back & Consciously Caring

Redefining Work for Environmental Care

At Spryker, our FLOW model – representing Flexible, Life, Oryx, Work – is more than a work culture; it's a step towards environmental mindfulness. This hybrid working approach combines the flexibility of remote work with the option of office use, leading to significant environmental advantages.

Reducing Carbon Footprint Through Flexibility

The flexible component of FLOW directly contributes to lower carbon emissions. By enabling Sprykees to work remotely or choose when to commute to the office, we significantly reduce the number of daily commutes. This reduction in travel not only lowers our collective carbon footprint but also contributes to decreased traffic congestion and air pollution.

Life-Work Integration Supporting Sustainable Lifestyles

Integrating work into life rather than the other way around, as emphasized in FLOW, encourages a more sustainable lifestyle. This model allows Sprykees to create more energy-efficient work environments at home, reducing the overall energy consumption compared to traditional office settings. Moreover, it supports a better work-life balance, which often translates into more environmentally conscious choices in daily life and an opportunity to contribute to community environmental initiatives and connect with nature.

The Role of Office in a Hybrid Model

In our hybrid work culture, the office plays a dynamic and adaptive role. While our office spaces are designed for efficiency and collaboration, their reduced utilization in a hybrid model means less energy usage for lighting, heating, and cooling. This approach not only aligns with our sustainability goals but also sets a new standard for environmentally responsible office management.

WFA: Amplifying Environmental Positives

Our Work From Anywhere (WFA) policy is not just a perk. By allowing Sprykees to work from locations that suit them best, whether it’s closer to nature or in more affordable living areas, we promote a lifestyle that values environmental consciousness. This policy enables Sprykees to reduce their reliance on urban resources and explore more sustainable living arrangements.

A Greener Future with FLOW

Through the FLOW work culture and our hybrid working model, Spryker doesn’t just champion workplace innovation; we actively foster environmental sustainability. Each aspect of FLOW – flexibility, life integration, and thoughtful office use – contributes to a greener, healthier planet. Our approach showcases how reimagining work can profoundly and positively impact the environment.
