100% secure archiving is now also highly ecological.

‘Sustainability’ and ‘green policy’ are not empty words here. They are essential to the services we provide.

The culmination of a green vision

Since 2011, we have achieved the ISO 14001 certificate for environmental management every year for all our Belgian locations. Proof that we are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of the archives stored, without damaging the environment. We support companies to reduce their environmental footprint by digitising and preserving their records.

Not only is your archive 100% secure, you don't have to copy and keep it yourself. If you decide to destroy your paper records afterwards, we will ensure that the shredded paper is recycled 100%.

Quality assurance

Can a green policy be cost-effective?

We are also ecological in our internal operations. For example, we already produce 90% of our own electricity consumption. 100% of our electricity is generated from green sources, like our own solar panels. And over 54% of our fleet is already made up of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. Another beautiful green detail is that we surround our company buildings with greenery, for the general well-being of our employees.

A green policy certainly doesn’t stand in the way of growth and profitability. In recent years, we have been able to maintain our turnover and past investments in solar panels have generated a nice return.

In addition to ISO 14001 certification for environmental management, we pass ISO 9001 quality management and ISO 27001 information security audits every year with flying colours. So, in addition to an ecological policy, there is also quality assurance for the customer.
