Social & Environmental Statement
Proficiency Cloud Services and our team, stand in the heart of society, and we realise that the thing we do, or don’t have an impact on all people, animal life and the environment. Every day Proficiency is pairing technology with innovation to make a positive social and environmental impact – trying to create what we call PositiveProficiency.
This means that we are aware of our impact on the world we live in, and contribute in a positive way to rise proficiency in protecting it. This does not end by giving to charity. It also means we express what we see, believe and contribute. We want to raise awareness, so we need to speak out and be an example. We are committed to putting our technology and expertise to work, where it can do the most good for people, animals and the planet, making possible today what was impossible yesterday.
Every team member at Proficiency shares this commitment because being a good company is the right thing to do, but it is also right for our business. We’re creating real value for our customers, employees, and partners while driving social and environmental good in the community.
We also strongly believe in equal opportunities for everyone, no matter what religion, gender, social background, sexual orientation or race. We are firm believers of inclusion and not of segregation.
We strongly oppose violence, sexual harassment and racism, and operate on a zero tolerance basis within our teams.
Respectful and open conversation is always better than discrimination, violence and/or any other aggressive behaviour. We encourage our team to be good citizens and provide them time and materials to do so and participate in voluntary work for charity organisations, schools, sports, youth projects etc.
Being responsible for the print we leave on this world we try to contribute in lowering energy consumption in datacentres, our own facilities or those of our valuenet partners. It also means we use green energy wherever and whenever possible, drive cars with green energy labels, separate garbage and turn off lights, computer systems and other electricity requiring equipment whenever possible.
We also use fair trade and organic products as much as possible, choosing local products whenever we can, trying to safe on environmental impact of transport. As a company we focus on being financially stable, fiscally transparant and in accordance to all local legislation.
Proficiency shall provide an annual report on our social and environmental activities and the impact we have had on this regard.
