We are committed to addressing climate and environment-related challenges, both in our audit work and as an employer. We believe that every little helps, and that each action plays a direct part in building a more sustainable world.
Examples of our environmental initiatives:
Beekeeping club: ECA staff can gain hands-on experience tending the beehives on our premises. The honey produced is mainly given as corporate gifts.
Community garden: keen gardeners can join their colleagues looking after the flower and vegetable beds on our premises. Our community gardeners also organise seed exchanges for other staff to raise awareness of biodiversity and permaculture.
Tree planting: the ECA has committed to a four-year volunteer project working with a local NGO to plant trees in Luxembourg.
City bikes: we offer our staff free subscriptions to the City of Luxembourg’s vel'OH! bike rental scheme.
Reusable bottles/boxes: to reduce the use of plastic, we provide our staff with reusable takeaway food boxes and water bottles.
We take part in the EU’s Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS). This management tool enables organisations to evaluate, report on and improve their environmental performance. Learn more about
