Energy and climate – all day long
At Viegand Maagøe, we do so much more than just talk about climate and energy. It’s what we do on a daily basis and our work is characterized by high standards and professional competence, responsibility, close collaboration with our clients and a motivating and flexible office environment in an almost family-like atmosphere.
What is special about Viegand Maagøe?
Viegand Maagøe is a young company that collaborates informally across the company’s various divisions. This gives the employees ideal opportunities to take great responsibility for daily assignments and to prove what they are actually capable of achieving. In Viegand Maagøe, we value our mutual flexibility, which leaves room for each employee to adjust their working routine to match the demands of a project and their family life. There are good opportunities to work from home and thereby integrate the working day into everyday life.
Our professional competencies cover many fields within communication, energy and climate. We can therefore offer our individual knowledge and expertise, which we believe is the key to our success. Viegand Maagøe emphasizes that all employees continually develop their professional skills through work and further education.
We are ambitious but not at the expense of our colleagues. This also contributes to a positive and healthy working environment. At Viegand Maagøe, we know each other and get along very well, and everyone greatly appreciates the social interaction.
Climate and energy are what motivates us the most. They are important topics and mean a lot to us.
An energy-efficient and climate-friendly workplace
At Viegand Maagøe, we do not merely work with energy and energy conservation; we integrate them into our daily lives. We do this because we believe that what we work for makes a difference.
We minimize our climate footprint as follows.
- Mapping CO2 emissions
In 2013, we have mapped the CO2 emissions from our electricity and heat consumption. It is 0.47 tonnes per year per employee, and therefore 0.4 tonnes lower than other similar companies in Denmark. Our paper consumption is less than 1/3 of what the similar companies are using.
We’re constantly working to make our CO2 emissions even lower, and is currently in the process of optimizing our energy-using habits and compete with each other to achieve the lowest energy consumption.
- Green energy
We only use CO2 neutral electricity. The emissions arising from our electricity consumption are offset by a project reducing CO2 emissions in a low-income country. The project is carried out regardless of the results of international climate negotiations. Further, Viegand Maagøe conserves as much electricity as we possibly can during the day.
- Organic food and the Nordic Eco-label.
We only buy organic food such as milk, bread, coffee and fruit where possible. Further, we only purchase soap, toilet paper, detergent, cleaning detergent and various office supplies with the Nordic Eco-label. We serve tap water and not bottled water.
- Electricity used by electronic devices
We supply all our printers with recycled paper and adjusted the printers to print on both sides of the paper. Further, the energy rating is an important parameter when we buy new computers, printers or appliances.
- Interior design
We have designed every room with energy-saving power strips so that all attached peripherals power down when a computer is switched off. We have fitted A-rated energy saving bulbs in all our lamps.
We encourage each other to use one of our two company bicycles when we attend meetings outside the office. None of our employees commute by car.
We sort our wastepaper from the other waste and deliver it for recycling.
- CO2 neutral website
The Internet and computers use a lot of electricity. We have therefore decided to make our www.viegandmaagoe.dk website CO2 neutral.View the Viegand Maagøe certificate
