This is how we reduce our ecological footprint:
- Fisheye's entire headquarters runs on renewable energy thanks to an extensive solar panel installation (465 to be exact) on the roof of our offices and workshops.
- Bolt buys the excess electricity we generate with our solar panels. Bolt is a supplier of energy that only purchases renewable energy.
- Use of FSC labelled wood originating from sustainable forest management projects when possible.
- In 2021, the lighting in our studio was updated. The 64 400-watt HQI gas discharge lamps were replaced by 98-watt LED variants.
- Use of water-based paints and varnish when possible.
- Sustainable waste management including garbage sorting, recycling and upcycling towards the circular economy.
- Digital communication through online conference calls, avoiding unnecessary transportation.
- Digital file reviews during the design process using online project management tools.
- Sustainable product designs that take the ecological aspects and durability of the finished products into account from the outset.
- Remote control interventions for technical installations.
- Office and workshop maintenance based on eco-friendly cleaning products.
- No more PET bottles for drinking water, but a water installation from Robinetto
- We started the electrification of our fleet in 2022. In 2023 we have 5 full electric vehicles. In 2024 we will go for EV for any vehicles that need replacing and will update our fleet of light trucks to an EV variant.
Concerning sustainability efforts, we tend to focus on a structural approach from design to production. This philosophy is an inseparable part of Fisheye's DNA and keeps us sharp in terms of social responsibility.
But let's face it, it's not a one-off. We need to keep exploring how to make our operations even more sustainable.
