Environment and climate protection

Ready for the environment

We are ready to make our contribution to environmental protection. We are already climate-positive and save more CO2 than we emit. Now we want to consolidate this advantage.

Goal 2025

500,000 t

CO2 reduction together with our customers

This is equivalent to 1% of the greenhouse gas emissions produced by Switzerland.

Power consumption

100% from renewable sources

We mainly use hydro, wind or solar energy which we produce ourselves or purchase. We use certificates to offset the small proportion of power we take from other sources.

Energy efficiency

We cool with circulating air and rely on smart controls for our Minergie office buildings.
