Environmental Management

Environmental Commitment

Protection of the environment is important to Vector and is integral to our company-wide guidelines. We assess our environmental impact and reduce it by established environmental management processes based on ISO 14001. Vector environmental guidelines serve as the foundation for these processes:

  • Vector conserves natural resources and does not harm the environment.
  • Vector implements the legal requirements for relevant environmental aspects.
  • Vector has introduced environmental management policies to control all activities and objectives that contribute to the protection of the environment. This ensures that the Vector’s environmental impact is continuously reduced or avoided.

This guideline provides guidance for executives and employees to be environmentally friendly within their work environment and to reduce the environmental footprint of Vector's business activities.
The Vector Environmental Guideline is communicated to all persons working for or on behalf of Vector.

Examples of Vector environmental measures in Germany:

  • The company ticket for public transportation is subsidized by Vector.
  • Vector compensates the CO2 emissions of company flights via www.atmosfair.de. And Vectorians travel completely green during rail travel.
  • Vector has signed a contract (DKV) for CO2 compensation for fuel cards for corporate vehicles.
  • Vector offers charging stations for electric vehicles (e-cars, e-bikes / pedelecs).
  • Vectorians can lease job-bikes with tax advantages through Vector.
  • The CO2 emission of the company fleet is steadily reduced by giving preference to CO2-friendly cars.
IT infrastructure
  • Servers are becoming increasingly virtualized, which means fewer devices that consume power.
  • Server rooms are cooled efficiently by appropriate arrangement.
  • When new equipment is purchased, the focus is on energy-efficiency.
  • Administrative procedures are processed electronically to avoid printouts.
  • In the design and manufacture of hardware products, Vector pays particular attention to energy efficiency and protection of resources.
  • Software and manuals are increasingly provided electronically for download.
  • All new hardware packaging is as small as possible.
  • All printed marketing materials such as catalogs, brochures, press books and posters are printed at print offices that are FSC and PEFC certified.
  • Vector has approved a sustainability credo for the canteen: for food, detergents, packaging and paper.
  • Vector uses sustainable cultivated and fair trade coffee.
