”Our mission is to promote sustainability, which is already part of our work by providing 100% digital credits and eliminating the need for clients to travel to our office. We also use digital signatures to eliminate physical contracts, thus reducing carbon emissions. Our goal is to have a positive impact on the environment and participate in volunteer activities that contribute to reforestation efforts in Romania. We aim to not only have a positive impact on small businesses but also the environment.”, declares Georgiana Andrei, CEO of OMRO & Filbo.
In 2022, the national forest fund occupied 27,7% of the country’s surface, indicating an increase of only 0.3% compared to 2023, according to data published by the National Institute of Statistics. In this context, Filbo & OMRO are committed to actively getting involved in volunteering actions alongside specialized organizations that contribute to Romania’s reforestation. The company seeks to to carry out afforestation actions every planting season, respectively every autumn and spring.
Thus, the next 250 credits granted will contribute to the company’s mission until the next activity in the spring.
