Every day we face the challenge of the increasing scarcity of resources, climate change, inequalities, changes in the way we consume… That is why we believe that sustainability is a fundamental pillar not only for our society but also for building solid businesses.
We strive to do things differently and to constantly improve, both for our customers and employees, and for the community around us. Our goal is to create value through corporate responsibility, which is why we innovate to increase the impact of our actions and explore new ways to use our technology to overcome new global challenges.
We are constantly working to improve and meet the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations General Assembly through small actions such as implementing remote work and encouraging the use of public transport to reduce CO2 emissions, implementing recycling in all our offices, creating a wellness platform for all our employees, prioritizing the safety of the entire team during the pandemic or holding all kinds of solidarity events on a regular basis, with the certainty that from our position we can and must contribute to the path towards a much more sustainable world.
We have reduced the use of plastic in all of our office (cups, bottles…) and replaced them with environmentally friendly materials. Even a large part of our merchandising is now made of sustainable materials.
Fighting for equality
Our values are centered on equality, diversity, and inclusion of all individuals. We prioritize talent and believe that everyone has the right to have access to fair opportunities.
Recycling of waste
We have implemented a culture of recycling in our offices to provide a second life to our waste and most polluting elements (batteries, toners, paper, etc.).
We have always been aligned with remote work and improvements for better work-life balance. In addition, we are in the process of developing a wellness platform for our employees.
Reduction of CO2 emissions
We offer the possibility of working 100% remotely to avoid commuting and we offer incentives so that those who want to work from the office can get there using public transportation.
Involved with the change we want
We believe in a better society and we collaborate with organizations dedicated to fundraising for charitable associations, food donations, promotion of humanitarian actions…
Creating value for our clients
One of our goals is to become leaders in sustainability, which is why we seek opportunities to minimize our impact on the environment. Our solutions help our customers reduce costs and their environmental impact by minimizing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions through technology.
We believe that virtual environments are the key to a radical shift towards a more sustainable economy, which is why we have helped organizations incorporate innovative technological developments that enable them to adapt to more productive and sustainable ways of working. From infrastructure migrations to the cloud that reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions, to AI-enabled process automation that incorporate sustainability actions, such as eliminating the use of paper.
We help our clients improve the productivity of their businesses and, in addition, empower them to achieve more efficient and sustainable processes. Some examples:
Thanks to our development, we avoided the printing of millions of boarding passes per year, in addition to increasing security.
Migration and modernization of their data center to Microsoft Azure, with more than 2,000 servers located in 2 countries.
Much more than technology
At Plain Concepts, sustainability is a way to achieve the best economic and social results by effectively managing our operations and projects. We constantly strive to achieve new certifications and we can now proudly say that we hold ISO 9001:2015 for Quality, ISO 27001:2013 for Information Security, and ISO 14001:2015 for the Environment. The latter is another step towards a more sustainable company since this certification has been achieved thanks to the commitment and increase of online events during the year 2020, as well as the promotion of flexible remuneration and the increase of projects in Infrastructure (Migrations to the cloud), which reduce CO2 emissions.
Year after year we work hard to keep improving and these are some of our achievements so far.
Thinking of our employees
Our employees come first, and their well-being is our priority, so we adapt to their needs and provide facilities such as remote work. That is why they have chosen us as a Great Place to Work.
