Technology and ecology

For Bernhard-AV, protecting the environment and contributing to the fight against climate change are an integral part of corporate responsibility. Our activities as a provider of technical services are by no means in contradiction with an ecological approach. On the contrary, we contribute towards making events as eco-friendly as possible.

Our central location in the heart of Vienna and well-planned transport logistics guarantee maximum flexibility and low CO2 emissions.

Most of our branded high-tech equipment meets the highest environmental standards; its superior quality guarantees a long service life.

For prompt delivery of small pieces of equipment ordered at short notice, we use an electric cargo bike. In the future, our fleet of utility vehicles will be changed over to eco-friendly alternatives, such as electric vehicles.

 

Last but not least, there is one fundamental principle which applies to every event serviced by us:

 KreisEverything we bring, we take away with us again!

EMAS stands for Eco-Management and Audit Scheme, an EU system of environmental management and environmental audits for organizations wishing to improve their environmental performance.

EMAS is based on ISO 14001, the international standard for environmental management, but includes additional requirements ensuring legal compliance and the publication of an environmental statement. This makes EMAS the premium instrument for environmental management.

In its EMAS environmental statement, the company discloses the direct and indirect impact of its activities on the environment as well as its environmental performance and targets. The environmental statement is validated by an independent, government-accredited environmental auditor. Compliance with the targets specified in the environmental statement has to be verified. The EMAS logo may only be used by registered organizations that have successfully undergone the audit performed by the environmental auditor.

 

Customers using our tailor-made, professional AV services can be sure of contributing to the protection of our environment.
