Our social responsibility
We feel responsible for our People, Planet and Profit.
We hold people and society in high regard, which is evident in our core values: Smart, Easy and Transparent. It is from these values we draw our success. Every employee contributes their knowledge, experience and talents and in doing so enriches Plato Group from the inside-out.
We believe in keeping our employees stimulated by offering them the tools and freedom they need to grow as professionals within the company. We also incorporate a healthy living environment into each of our offices where employees are supplied with baskets of fruit every day.
We have implemented various initiatives at a company level to contribute to our green policies, such as installing energy saving LED lighting in our offices, a bike-to-work scheme, charging stations at work to encourage our employees to drive hybrids and strict recycling rules - particularly for paper waste.
We have further optimised our use of energy by installing direct gas heaters which consumes 50% less gas compared to the previous indirect gas heaters. We have also installed solar panels on our warehouses which accounts for 10% of our energy usage each year.
Our founder Martien Jonkers founded also the IGO-POST Foundation (‘Stichting IGO-POST’) in 2003.
While we are a profit driven company, we are proud to say that a portion of our profit is contributed to this foundation each year.
