Corporate Social Responsibility
SmartDocuments is committed to a better world. The social interest plays a major role in our way of working. In our daily activities, we strive for sustainable and socially responsible entrepreneurship.
Consciously dealing with CO2 emissions
Yes, we’re also car users here at SmartDocuments. But because we’re aware of the consequences for the environment, we've taken steps in recent years to offset. For example, we’re working with a leasing company that, like us, feels responsible for the environment. For every car leased by SmartDocuments, the leasing company invests in climate projects.
We encourage our employees to drive electric cars. Just like our visitors, they can make use of charging points for hybrid and electric cars at our office in Deventer.
Fact: In 2018, SmartDocuments offset 93,726 kg of CO2 emissions. Take a look at our CO2-certificate.
Green business operations
Reducing paper use
Creating digital documents is our core business. More accurate digital documents means less printing is needed. In this way, our software helps companies to reduce their paper consumption. In the office of SmartDocuments, documents are only printed when absolutely necessary. Communication to customers, partners and suppliers is almost entirely digital.
Whenever possible, our consultants will support you by telephone or digitally, allowing us to save time and fuel, which in turn contributes to a better environment.
Children are the future
SmartDocuments actively takes into account the younger generation. After all, children are the future. That's why we invest part of our profits into the welfare of children all over the world. Through sponsorship, we support various organisations that are committed to a bright future for every child.
War Child – War Child – Children are stronger than war
War Child is committed to helping war children. With sports, games, music and education they help children to come to terms with their horrible experiences. This gives them confidence in themselves, each other and in the future. SmartDocuments is proud to officially call itself a Business Friend of War Child.
KidsRights – Children are change makers
KidsRights makes kids strong. The organisation stands up for vulnerable children all over the world and is committed to promoting and supporting children’s rights. In doing so, they see the children themselves as ‘change makers’. We support the great work of KidsRights and hope that every child can make his or her dreams come true.
SOS Children's Villages
SmartDocuments supports children in Eastern European countries. These are children without parental care, but also children at risk of losing it.
SmartDocuments offers scholarships for talented young people from Ukraine to participate in the summer programme of the European Forum Alpbach (EFA), one of the oldest and largest international forums in the world, founded in 1945 in Austria. The EFA offers almost three weeks of intensive ad hoc educational programmes, with more than 900 speakers and 5,000 participants, including seminars, symposia and breakout sessions led by professors from leading universities around the world as well as senior politicians and representatives of financial institutions, companies engaged in technology and innovation and environmental organisations.
