Our Social & Environmental Responsibility

At ComAp, we take our impact on the world seriously. Our corporate responsibility practices touch everything from our daily business to the company culture. Three important pillars reflect our sustainability attitude, forming the basis of our valued CSR programme.

 

Environment

Protecting The World

The world’s resources are not infinite. We have committed at both the corporate and individual level to search for smart and sustainable ways of protecting the environment. In fact, our framework to reduce ComAp’s carbon footprint and environmental impact is already in place.

“At ComAp, we understand that the future of power generation is renewables. Nevertheless, we are also aware of today´s challenge - their integration with conventional resources which are still required to maintain the reliability and stability of the energy supply. Therefore, we strive to develop products which make power generation more efficient, with optimized fuel consumption and reduced emissions as well as addressing the environmental protection needs of today and tomorrow.”
Peter Sandin CEO

Our Offices

 

Saving Water And Energy
We lead by example and believe that every action counts. Our HQ in Prague, Czech Republic  are  BREEAM certified with the "excellent" result which means we make 30 - 70% more savings in energy and water consumption compared to standard offices. 

Reducing CO2 Emissions
We have already reduced our CO2 emissions by 30% as a result of transferring ComAp’s IT
operations to the cloud service.

Rycycling Products And Equipment
All our products are WEEE compliant and recycled responsibly in a waste disposal centre.
Employee equipment is recycled too, using our global services. All packaging is fully recyclable.

Driving Change
 

ComAp has always been committed to supporting clean energy and lower-carbon technologies, and in today’s climate, it’s more important than ever that we uphold our sustainability pledge and actively contribute to the two of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:

  • 100% CO2 neutral power supply 
  • 100% CO2 neutral product transport
  • 60% of waste recycled*
  • 15% reduction of annual electrical energy consumption*
  • 20% water consumption reduction*
*Based on 2018 figures

Products & Solutions

Innovation meets experience

Our innovative solutions for hybrid systems maximize energy usage from renewables without
endangering system stability. We work to make our solutions more efficient, reduce emissions,
and decrease the usage of fossil fuels in traditional power generation. The development of
technologies for reducing fuel consumption is one of our biggest investment areas.
