Our CR strategy is committed to the UN's 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development UNO and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This page details which of these goals are relevant for us and how we are working to achieve these.
We promote good health and well-being among the Swiss population through our healthcare offerings, and among our employees through occupational health management and health and safety in the workplace.
We nurture media expertise through media courses and other educational offerings. Through our “Schools on the Net” project, we offer all Swiss schools free broadband Internet access plus additional services.
In a drive to increase the proportion of women in management, we offer flexible working models and specific training offerings for example. Through our ICT weeks for girls, we also hope to increase the proportion of female apprentices in IT.
In tiko, we have established the largest intelligent, real-time electrical network in Europe, thus contributing to more affordable, cleaner energy.
We are rated one of the top employers in Switzerland and our investments are helping to make Switzerland an even more attractive business location. We are also committed to improving working conditions within our supply chain.
We are one of the three most innovative companies in Switzerland. In cooperation with our industry partners, we are driving digitisation with new technologies such as 5G and the first Low Power Network.
We continue to expand our portfolio of sustainable services for the Internet of Things, in particular, and the smart city for residential and business customers.
Through our repair centers, the Mobile Bonus recommerce offering and our Mobile Aid initiative, we actively support the reuse, recovery and environmentally-friendly recycling of devices.
Our measures for increasing energy efficiency, our growing number of offerings for CO² savings, and various other initiatives, such as the energy and climate pioneers, are making a significant contribution to climate protection.
We used a materiality matrix to rate sustainability issues by importance and relevance for the company and stakeholders.
Our CR strategy is based on six strategic priorities, for which long-term individual goals leading up to the year 2020 were defined in 2015. All of these goals and the current status are provided on the following page.
