Our commitment
to the environment

Active climate protection
Our contribution to climate neutrality

At IVU, our commitment to active climate protection drives us to make a significant impact on advancing our society's journey towards climate neutrality. Our approach relies on IVU.suite’s integrated IT systems - these tools support public transport companies to reduce CO₂ emissions by enabling sustainable mobility and therefore promote climate protection. Not only are we dedicated to external impact, but also to internal change, with the goal of reaching climate neutrality by 2025.

Public transport
as an environmentally friendly mobility option

Our systems ensure seamless and efficient public transport for transport companies in Germany, Europe and all over the world – enhancing attractiveness and passenger satisfaction globally. With the IVU.suite products, we champion sustainable public transport choices, such as bus and train travel, while assisting transport companies in curbing emissions across their entire operation.

  IVU.control Evaluation

Performance analysis shows potential for improvement

Most of these emissions can be attributed to external data centres, commuting, and energy consumption (in particular heating and electricity consumption in our offices). However, working on the move allows us to save on commuting and to use existing spatial resources more efficiently and sustainably. For example, our employees are encouraged to use public transport as often as possible and unavoidable business air travel is offset by the non-profit organisation "atmosfair". The share of green electricity was around 71% in 2023, double that of 2021. The aim is to gradually increase the proportion of environmentally friendly energy.

Efficient use of resources
to minimise waste

At IVU we use our resources carefully and strive for a circular economy. Our emphasis lies in optimising the recycling of internal operational resources and creating partnerships with sustainability-driven suppliers. Due to office activities, commercial waste and the hardware used by employees are the main waste products.
