Sustainability and responsibility
We are certified as a sustainable company and Sustainable Meeting Partner.
Sustainable action and management does not only concern the environment, but also topics from different areas.
At PCS, we rely on the four-pillar model of sustainable development. The four-pillar model of sustainable development is based on the idea that this development can only be achieved through the simultaneous and equal implementation of environmental, economic, institutional-political and social goals.
Our sustainability strategy and vision
Our aim is to enable barrier-free, multilingual and sustainable communication and networking at events and conferences.
In a constantly evolving market, PCS GmbH is a reliable partner for the innovative, sustainable, ecological and resource-saving realization of conferences and events.
Our top priority is always to meet the needs of our customers and stakeholders and to treat each other responsibly and in a spirit of partnership.
PCS GmbH is guided by the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations Agenda 2030 and develops its own sustainability targets and strategies on the basis of these.
Our four core objectives
Mobility and transport
Raw materials and products
We offer digital and remote alternatives for many of our services. This allows you to decide at the event planning stage which event form is the more sustainable and resource-saving one: an on-site event (classic on-site), a hybrid event or a purely online format.
We offer the rental and leasing of technology. In the majority of cases, renting significantly saves resources and raw materials and also helps to avoid waste.
We offer additional technology that further promotes barrier-free communication at events and conferences. This includes technology for people with hearing impairments (induction technology), the transmission of sign language interpreting, audio description for the visually impaired, written interpreting or interpreting into easy language. And language barriers are overcome by the simultaneous interpreting services offered.
We use washable materials for our headphone pads and microphone attachments instead of disposable products and have them hygienically refurbished in workshops for the disabled.
We use – rechargeable batteries wherever possible. We dispose of batteries properly and have them recycled, and are connected to a professional recycling system for this purpose.
We source cleaning agents and consumables for our offices and operations primarily from sustainable, certified suppliers.
We have printed products produced on certified paper and/or offer CO2 compensation for production. We rely on digital, paperless processes.
Life, work, togetherness
Equality and equal treatment of our employees regardless of gender, origin or religion is a top priority.
Prevention plays an important role in the area of health. We provide all employees with ergonomically designed workstations. Free drinks are available in all stores.
Occupational safety is a top priority for us. All employees receive personal protective equipment, depending on the area of operation. All employees receive safety instruction in the areas of accident prevention, vehicle driving and occupational safety. The instructions are refreshed annually.
We work flexibly and enable mobile working where possible to balance family and career and reduce travel times.
We offer all employees additional benefits such as supplementary company health insurance and a company pension plan. We also contribute to the cost of public transport and offer the opportunity to use a company bicycle.
We promote togetherness in the company through joint ventures, joint lunches. We work together for the success of the company. In weekly jour fixes, working groups and special teams of the individual departments, all employees are given the opportunity to get involved in company processes, share their experiences and exchange knowledge. We live flat hierarchies and are always available for discussions and suggestions.
Education and training
We support all employees through training and continuing education opportunities. Depending on the area of responsibility, this includes, for example, a master craftsman's degree, a trainer's license, a truck driver's license, further IT training, various certificates and much more. We also offer annual apprenticeships for the following professions:
