About me

Jörg Buhren

Concept

Since I strive for a sustainable way of life in my private life, I have also set myself this task for my professional work. Because if everyone makes their own contribution, we can achieve something together.

I am not only concerned with CO2 reduction and the avoidance of pollutants, but also with legally compliant data storage. The latter excludes the use of certain online services and it actually requires some research to be careful here as well.

Here are a few of the measures taken:

  • Exclusive use of electricity from renewable sources
  • Extensive use of used hi-end hardware
  • Secure web servers and data servers of a provider that is CO2-neutral and operates in Germany in accordance with German data protection law.
  • Business Bank Account at GLS Bank
  • No need for an additional vehicle
  • Homeoffice eliminates trips to the workplace
  • Car trips to meetings that are not absolutely necessary are replaced by online conferences.
  • Use of public transport as far as possible when travel is required
  • Paperless office – there is no printer anymore

I am always open for further measures and keep an eye on possible improvements.
