Now that the year has once again changed, we thought it’d be nice to look back for a moment and reflect on the past year. The year 2020 was without a doubt a very unusual year to all of us, but despite the exceptional circumstances, the year was also full of joy and success.
Similar to most other fields of business, the prevailing corona situation posed challenges and changes to our work in 2020. Because of the serious situation, we increased remote work and remote meetings and put effort into the protection of our personnel and customers. Luckily, thanks to our modern tools, it was pretty easy to shift to remote work and remote meetings, and we managed to serve our customers in our usual skilled and agile manner.
The year 2020 was filled with an enormous number of interesting projects, and we also had the chance to welcome several new professionals to our team. Even though remote work has limited our social contacts, our work atmosphere has remained at a very high level even through these exceptional times. This is something we’re particularly happy about!
Efficient documentation and the high level of work automation have always been some of Copla’s major strengths, and we managed to take these even further in 2020. We created several new features to our DocStarter application, which we also use ourselves in all our activities. Our amazing DocStarter team was also lucky to get three new professionals to join the team!
Environmental issues and sustainable development have continued to be strongly present in everything we do, and these things are extremely important to us. We have had an Environmental Plan since 2018, and we implemented our Sustainable Development Plan in 2020. Our Sustainable Development Plan is based on the Sustainable Development Goals put forth by the United Nations, and we are strongly committed to promoting these goals in all our actions. You can read more about sustainable development on our website’s Copla section.
In September 2020, we acquired the RALA Environment Certificate, and we were actually the first construction consulting company to acquire it. This was great news to us, and we thought it a great honor. In addition to this new certificate, we also have the RALA Certificate of Competence and Vastuu Group’s Reliable Partner Certificate to verify our high-quality services.
All in all, despite the extraordinary times, this has been a very successful and happy year to us all at Copla. Finally, we would like to give our heartfelt thanks to all our customers and partners and wish everyone a Happy New Year 2021!
