ZEBRA's Sustainability Policy
Sustainable development requires an integrated approach that takes into consideration environmental concerns along with economic development.
In 1987, the United Nations Brundtland Commission defined sustainability as “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Today, there are almost 140 developing countries in the world seeking ways of meeting their development needs, but with the increasing threat of climate change, concrete efforts must be made to ensure development today does not negatively affect future generations.
Sustainable practices support ecological, human, and economic health and vitality. These four pillars are also informally referred to as people, planet, purpose, and profits. Sustainability presumes that resources are finite and should be used conservatively and wisely with a view to long-term priorities and consequences of the ways in which resources are used.
Many business entities, enterprises and organizations around the world put emphasis on these especially important elements.
In ZEBRA we are also very keen on participating. Nobody can do everything and all, but we can all do something.
In ZEBRA we have focused on the below actions:
- We recycle plastic, paper and glass;

- We commit to instead of throwing computers and laptops away we donate them to charity;
