Sustainability at RizonX

We see ourselves as a company that thinks and acts sustainably. To make our contribution to climate protection, we not only promote a sustainable way of working, but also offset our unavoidable emissions through compensation projects. Thus, we have been climate neutral since our company was founded in 2018!

Our sustainable way of working

Digital Mindset:
Working digitally and as paper-free as possible is not a challenge for us, but a matter of course. Even before the corona pandemic, the use of digital tools and almost paperless work was common practice for us. With this background, our entire communication (internal/external), accounting, controlling, and HR processes are almost entirely digitalised.

Mobile working:
Even without a pandemic, mobile working is a naturalness for us. Moreover, our employees can borrow the necessary equipment, such as ergonomic office chairs and monitors, to use at home.

In contrast to other consultancies, company cars are an exception at RizonX. Only hybrid cars or pure e-cars are permitted.

Business trips:
Direct contact with our clients is essential, especially in consulting. However, business trips can lead to high CO2 emissions due to travel and hotel accommodation. Therefore, we use video calls for client meetings whenever possible and only travel when necessary. This way, we save CO2 emissions and can work very efficiently. Unavoidable business trips are mainly made by train.

Christmas donation:
Since 2020, our customers no longer receive Christmas gifts from us, but we choose independently operating aid organisations that we support each year financially. In doing so, we would like to contribute to helping people in need. Among the organisations we have already supported are

RizonX has been calculatively climate-neutral since its founding

We are a climate-neutral company, which means: we have recorded our greenhouse gas emissions, are continuously reducing them and have offset the remaining emissions through climate protection projects - and have been doing so since our foundation in 2018.

In addition to the avoidance and reduction of greenhouse gases, offsetting is an important step in holistic climate protection.

Climate protection projects demonstrably save greenhouse gases and thus make an important contribution to combating global warming. In addition, they promote sustainable development in the project countries. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations provide a globally recognised benchmark for measuring these positive effects. (Guidelines of the UN for the use of SDG icons)

RizonX is particularly committed to supporting the following SDGs:

Combined project: Ocean protection Plastic Bank (Worldwide)

This compensation project has a double effect: The CO2 compensation takes place entirely via one of three climate protection projects, and, in addition, 10kg of plastic (approx. 500 plastic bottles) is collected for each compensated tonne of CO2 as part of the Plastic Bank Initiative.
In relation to our focused SDGs, the following contributions are made:

  • Quality education: In Haiti, members can use plastic to finance their children's schooling. Plastik Bank does not tolerate child labour and is committed to ensuring that all children attend school.
  • Decent work and economic growth: Plastic Bank has created over 2,300 jobs in the world's poorest countries and watches over labour and human rights.
  • Industry, innovation and infrastructure: In regions lacking waste management infrastructure, the Plastic Bank connects shippers, plastic processors, freighters and builds a recycling circular economy.
  • Sustainable consumption and production: Social Plastic is integrated into multinational companies' supply chains to reduce demand for virgin plastic and mitigate production-related environmental impacts. The Social Plastic logo on products helps consumers make responsible consumption choices.
  • Climate action: Healthy oceans are essential for stabilising the climate; Gold Standard-verified CO2 savings via the wind farm in the Philippines.

The CO2 offset is made entirely through one of the following three climate protection projects in each case:

  • Solar energy for sustainable power generation in the Indian states of Maharastra, Orissa, Jharkhand, Gujarat, and Andhra Pradesh.
  • Wind farm on the Philippine island of Luzon, which provides an increasingly independent supply of clean electricity for the population
  • Wind farm on the Caribbean island of Aruba, which provides a sustainable alternative to electricity from fossil fuels.

In Indonesia, Brazil, Haiti, and the Philippines, local residents can exchange the collected plastic waste at collection points for money, food, drinking water, or school fees. The project ensures that less plastic ends up in the sea and is instead recycled and turned into so-called social plastic.
