Sustainable development

Sustainability for a secure future for our planet, for the benefit of business.

What is sustainability for us?

Sustainability is part of our DNA. As of 2020, we are 100% powered by green energy, and Beyond.pl Data Center 2 is one of the most energy-efficient data centers, with a PUE of 1.2.

We constantly strive to reduce the negative impact of our operations on the environment by using best practices and implementing modern solutions.

We care about our organizational culture and providing our employees with the best working and development conditions.

We make conscious and responsible decisions in our daily work and plan investments to use our potential to create a sustainable company.

We believe sustainable development is of fundamental importance to our future, and by acting together, we have a tangible impact on how our world will look in a few decades.

The Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a document that was adopted on September 25, 2015 in New York by all UN member states.

The Agenda contains 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 associated targets that should be met by 2030. The actions taken are to meet the needs of the current generation sustainably, respect the environment, and above all, take into account the needs of future generations.
