Take care and take responsibility

At Itility we do that, not just for the solutions we deliver but also for our environment and the people around us. No empty promises. At Itility we deliver. That’s why we committed to Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by signing the SDG charter: a list of 17 sustainable goals to pursue within our working environment. Learn more about the initiatives that act upon these goals below. 

“If you want to see a change in the world, don’t just dream about a better world; act to create it.”

Act to improve

“If you want to see a change in the world, don’t just dream about a better world; act to create it.”

Share and care

We care about our carbon footprint. So we work with Amber a shared-mobility service, to replace our short trips in leased fossil-fuel cars with trips in shared electric cars.

Getting even more out of our Amber hub Itility participates in the ‘Low Car Diet’: a nationwide challenge where companies compete against each other to travel as sustainable as possible. During this month, our digital consultants will limit car usage and live up to the motto ‘Caring is Sharing’.

Educate the future

We care about our technical future, about ‘delivering’ the next generation of digital twins. So we work closely with TU/e, taking part in student projects such as Storm and Stella Vie and delivering data science lectures to students.

Quality education, unfortunately, is not accessible for everyone. Cadena de Talentos is an organization that invests in young, disadvantaged talents in the age between 15 to 20 from Lima (Peru). Itility sponsors these talents by paying for their education, equipping them with the tools required to improve the quality of life for themselves and the people around them. Our first student is Alexander Cruz Quintana who will go to the university of Federico Villarreal to become a veterinarian.

We also support Hope Foundation India, a private foundation that has established a home for children from the slums. We visited Dehra Dun, India, to install computers bought for the home. Each year we organize a Christmas fundraiser to make needed purchases for the home; these have included an intercom/security system, a garage for the school bus, and a kitchen renovation. In addition, we sponsor Priyanka and Deepak, a brother and sister who receive shelter and education in Hope Home.

Furthermore, We teach the children of our Itilians and customers how to code using BBC Micro:bit

Value the elderly

We care about the generations before us, who made it possible for us to study, grow, and learn. So twice a year, we team up with ‘De Zonnebloem’, sharing dinner with 50 seniors, giving Itilians a chance to talk, listen, connect, and learn.

“Never stop asking, keep looking for ways to go beyond.”

Take responsibility

We care about people who care about good cause. So we have the ‘donate-double’ rule: whenever an Itilian donates to a cause he cares about, one of our board members donates the same amount. Itility then matches the total amount.

We sponsor the training of seeing-eye dogs by one of our Itilian’s relatives.

We sponsor Peter Kuijpers in his Stelvio for Life run, to raise funds to improve the delivery of personalized cancer treatment.
