NEN is open and transparant about its activities and goals in the area of CSR.
The goals for example are not only minimizing the use of energy and resources, but also on supporting the employees in their development.
Solar panels en charging stations for electric vehicles
In 2018 NEN started using 266 solar panels on the roof of the NEN-office. They provided 31126 kWh. This is more than 7% of the total use of electricity in 2018.
On the parking outside the builiding was placed a 'city AED'. In case of emergency, this can be used by everyone in our neighborhood.
Sensors allow insight into the use of spaces. Rooms that have not been used are not cleaned, which results in a saving in water and energy consumption.
Compared to 2017, less gas, electricity and water was used in 2018.
NEN believes it is important that employees develop themselves. That is why there is a varied range of inspiration sessions on various topics and practical cases. Every NEN employee has the opportunity to attend workshops, training courses and courses.
