of natural resources
Although our business does not have such a significant impact on the environment as other economic sectors, we constantly seek to efficiently manage natural resources, and we use our expertise, education to disseminate good practices with our students and society.
Energy and water consumption
In this regard, we prioritize purchasing energy from renewable sources and we promote energy efficiency initiatives in our units and corporate offices. These initiatives include replacing lamps with LED units, which are cleaner and more efficient, monitoring consumption and waste, and conducting educational campaigns to raise awareness about rational energy consumption.
As to water consumption, we use two types of sources — underground water and supply by public and private utilities, and we conduct water consumption awareness campaigns.
