Taking responsibility for society and the environment is a fundamental part of MVTec's company guidelines.
MVTec places great value on ecological commitment
We at MVTec want to keep our ecological footprint as small as possible. Environmental protection is a top priority at our company. Furthermore, most of the food and drinks provided free of charge in our office is organic. In addition, we place great importance to using energy-saving electronic devices, e.g., in the server rooms or for energy-saving LED lighting in our office building.
For example, MVTec is a particularly cyclist-friendly company. Employees can lease company bicycles and MVTec also provides a bicycle cellar and showers. Since June 2022, MVTec is also a certified cycle-friendly employer. This programm is initiated by the European Unition and the ADFC (General German Cycle Club) in order to promote the widest possible use of bicycles with the aim of sustainable mobility and the well-being of the population.
Under the name green@MVTec, dedicated colleagues also meet regularly to develop, implement, and optimize further environmental protection measures that all MVTec employees can implement in their daily work. So far, this task force has already realized many successes, like the introduction of suitable waste separation, the adoption of environmentally friendly office materials, such as recycling or reusable products of all kinds, or the conversion to green electricity, to name just a few of them.
MVTec supports local organizations
The neighborhood meeting place "Na klar!" does community work in the southwest of Munich to promote children, accompany young people, and support families.
As a central drop-in center, it is open to all residents of the district. With its group meetings for young and old, mentoring and German courses, the "Na klar!" is intended to be a place where people get together, prejudices are reduced and the neighborhood spirit is strengthened. www.nachbarschaft-kleinhadern.de
