Sustainability

supported by the "Climate and Energy Fund" of the Luxembourgish Ministry of the Environment, Climate and Sustainable Development

At ANKAA, we will always look for ways to make our initiatives more environmentally-friendly, and work towards encouraging a sustainable future for both the planet and the people living on it.​

Our space realises an ethical responsibility towards the environment and supports a concept of circular economy.​​​​

Not only ANKAA relises an ethical responsibility towards the environment, but also our partners are actively involved and promote sustainable work practices.
