Environmental Responsibility

Our approach includes the implementation of circular economy principles, encompassing equipment enhancement, reuse, and proper disposal. We also optimize energy costs by using centralized infrastructure management and control based on need-based consumption. Our cloud services promote a circular economy by extending the life cycle of hardware through virtualization. This allows for efficient use of physical resources, reducing the need for new hardware production and waste quantities.

We are proud to be leaders in green IT innovation, simultaneously helping our clients and partners reduce their carbon footprint.

What steps have we taken so far?

  • AS WaveCom exclusively uses green energy in its data center
  • Our backup generators run on biodiesel
  • Cooling systems are set up to operate energy-efficiently, using free cooling technology and standby backup systems
  • We have joined the VMware Zero Carbon program, focusing on sustainable operation of cloud services and the use of green energy
  • We offer future-oriented cloud services that use self-scaling microarchitecture to efficiently adjust workload as needed.
  • Our cloud service's spare and excess host servers automatically go into “Standby” mode, minimizing energy usage
  • In server services, we implement operating system-driven CPU power management to optimize energy consumption according to workload
  • Since 2016, our private servers have used low-voltage processors, saving approximately 30% energy
  • Since 2005 we have implemented circular usage, where servers and other hardware go through several usage cycles from cloud infrastructure and private server rental services to donation to educational institutions or return to the manufacturer
  • We primarily source products and services from environmentally friendly partners, continually raising sustainability standards.
  • We are a paperless company and redirect packaging and pallets for reuse

Goals for the year 2024:

  • We have started implementing the ISO 14001 environmental management system standard and environmental specialist training
  • We use the heat emitted from the data center to heat our business premises

Social Responsibility

Our employees are our greatest asset. We are committed to creating a diverse, inclusive, and supportive work environment. This environment fosters social responsibility, respects labor laws, and follows best practices. We believe that ensuring the rights and well-being of employees is integrated into all of our company's activities.

  • We are committed to treating our employees with dignity, respect, fairness, and equality.
  • It is important for us to create an environment that values employee development, as this is key to our company's success.
  • We continually work towards promoting equal opportunities for all employees, regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or other backgrounds, taking into account the organization's security, qualifications, and regulatory requirements.
  • We are focused on recruiting, promoting, and retaining a diverse workforce and promoting a culture of inclusiveness.
  • We conduct development discussions every six months to set new goals and plan training, with a salary increase every six months upon achieving goals.
  • We continuously enhance our employees' skills through ongoing training, with an annual training volume of 500–1000 hours.
  • Employee health and well-being are important to us, therefore, we provide private medical insurance to our employees.
  • We do not favor night shifts or overtime, as our systems can be maintained during the day due to the highly redundant technology we use.
  • We offer flexible working hours, which allow employees to plan their own time and deal with personal or family-related important matters.
  • We invest significantly in ensuring the security of our infrastructure, which guarantees data protection and privacy. This commitment to data security is part of our social responsibility, thereby protecting sensitive information important to stakeholders.

Management

AS WaveCom follows various international and regional compliance standards such as ISO 9001, 27001, and 27017, as well as industry best practices, helping our clients efficiently meet their regulatory requirements.

  • We are committed to the highest standards of management and ethics, believing that good governance is the key to our company's long-term success.
  • We are dedicated to transparency, honesty, and responsible decision-making at all levels of our organization.
  • We recognize the critical importance of corporate governance in promoting responsible and ethical business practices.
  • We are committed to implementing good business practices, security, risk management, and ensuring business continuity in crisis situations.

Engaged in software development, we constantly need to quickly create new servers and scale them. For us, owning hardware and dealing with its management is certainly not in line with our goals. After trying out several service providers, we turned to Wavecom, where all our computing needs are covered. The service is also very stable, and it's easy to recommend to our clients to continue using Wavecom's services after development is complete.

The stability of WaveCom's service further led us to start building an automatic Kubernetes platform there, making life significantly easier for both us and our clients. All this is done so that using the service does not require having either DevOps or even IT specialists.
