Sustainability Strategy and Actions
As a global business, the Fast Lane Group is aware of the importance of sustainability. To meet these responsibilities, Fast Lane Group follows the following 4 principles. These principles serve as a guideline for decisions made within the company and therefore apply to all interactions of the company with employees, customers and other involved stakeholders.
Eliminate waste and emissions
Emissions and the waste of resources are serious global issues. The Fast Lane Group sets itself the goal of not wasting resources and not generating unnecessary emissions. All employees are encouraged to adopt a recycling behaviour and facilities are equipped accordingly.
Maximize the efficient use of resources and productivity
The Fast Lane Group's value-added processes require resources. In order to handle them as sustainably as possible, the Fast Lane Group aims to develop processes that are as efficient as possible in terms of resource consumption.
Safeguarding for the future
Even with a very conscious and efficient use of resources, sustainability is not guaranteed. There are scarce resources that require a particularly cautious approach to ensure that the availability is also secured for future generations. The Fast Lane Group's goal is not to compromise the availability of such resources.
The Fast Lane Group is a driver of new technologies and supports companies in their digital transformation through comprehensive know-how. The company believes that the resulting increases in efficiency (e.g. optimal use of resources in the cloud) or innovative ideas (e.g. paperless office) can help develop sustainable and strong companies.
The Fast Lane Way
As a worldwide leading high tech training provider, we believe in the transformative power of knowledge. By tapping into the power of cloud computing, the paperless office and novel disruptive ideas accross all technologies, companies can maximise their efficenciy and growth potential. It is our mission to facilitate this worldwide high tech transformation by providing the highest quaility training at the cutting edge of new technologies and tech trends.
We work to ensure the high availability of course offerings by constantly improving the quality of online courses, eliminating unnecessary travel and enabling our customers from different regions to participate worldwide.
In addition to these aspects, Fast Lane Group is also committed to making its own business processes as sustainable as possible. For this reason, internal guidelines were developed, which are intended to integrate the topic of sustainability into daily work and also to increase the level of knowledge of employees. The guidelines summarize principles to be implemented by employees (e.g. waste separation, considerate heating, recycling tricks).
In addition, the topic of sustainability is also taken into account in our basic process design by applying principles such as paperless processes in accounting, waste reduction in purchasing (recycled paper, reusable bottles), and sustainability in site management (charging options, environmentally friendly heating/cooling, sustainable power supply).
Projects and Stories
The Fast Lane Group participates in regional and worldwide projects. A particular focus is on supporting rain forest reforestation projects.
Reforestation in Costa Rica
Various reforestation projects were supported in Costa Rica. Among other things, 30,000 trees were donated, which are secured in the long term and contribute to the reforestation and preservation of biodiversity.
History of remotelabs
Find out how the practical part of a training is implemented and how solutions have changed in terms of efficiency, service and sustainability.
One of our biggest focuses is always on learning. In particular, complex technical topics are central to our increasingly technical world. An efficient IT infrastructure is key to the success of a modern business, whether that is by gaining competitive advantage or reduction of costs. To achieve this, deep technical knowledge is required which is gained through robust practical training.
At first glance, this seems to be a problem, as a server needed for this is not quickly built and configured, and some requirements sound overwhelming at first. Often, for example, the use of certain software or devices within an existing corporate infrastructure has to be simulated. Since its foundation, the Fast Lane Group has offered the possibility of such training environments, so-called labs.
The further development of the labs demonstrates the will to manage the company in an increasingly resource-efficient and sustainable way, as well as the will to expand the theory taught by expert trainers with professionally guided practical exercises.
To begin with, these practical exercises were implemented with hardware components actually on site. This method required a great deal of effort in terms of transport, setup and configuration. Efficiency was limited and support had to be provided primarily through experts on site.
As technologies advanced and bandwidth grew, we were able to move these labs to fixed, central location and make them available remotely. This method also immediately enabled better utilization of resources as well as eliminating emissions associated with transportation. Easy access also improved service with the help of Remotelab support. To minimize the use of resources, devices that were not needed could be switched off at a central location.
However, this was not the end of the development and constantly evolving technology enables further advantages in the efficient use of resources. Many hardware components can now be completely virtualized, making it possible to save space and make optimal use of resources. Furthermore, fast troubleshooting options (e.g. by loading a snapshot) as well as accurate and fast preparation of the devices are opened up.
Fast Lane Group will continue to follow this path of continuous improvement and will assess and implement new technical possibilities in order to create a more sustainable provision for our services.
