Swisscom aims to be one of Switzerland's most sustainable companies. Our environmental and social commitments are therefore an integral part of our corporate strategy. We have defined binding goals for 2020 in six corporate responsibility focus themes. Find out here what we have achieved and what we still aim to accomplish.
We envisage a Switzerland where future generations will be able to enjoy the same chances and opportunities as we do today. And many more besides. Our CR strategy is based on six focus themes. We have defined binding goals in each area that we aim to achieve by 2020. You can learn more about our sustainability goals in the video and PDF.
We rate all corporate responsibility topics according to their significance to our corporate mission, their relevance to stakeholders and their impact on the company's assets and financial performance. The topics and ranking in the matrix have been confirmed by a representative group of stakeholders.
In our Annual Corporate Responsibility Report we provide detailed information about our sustainability strategy, the goals we have set and measures we have implemented in the year under review. The report provides key indicators for all topics and thus plainly shows where we stand, what we have accomplished and what we still aim to achieve in the future.
Our corporate responsibility commitment is based on clearly defined guidelines. Our sustainability reporting complies with the highest transparency level of the Global Reporting Initiative, the leading global standard. We also commission the reputable independent audit specialist SGS to inspect and certify our company, so that we already achieve top scores in various sustainability rankings.
More than 4,500 partners supply us with goods and services worth over CHF 4.8 billion annually. We attach importance to fair and efficient partnerships with suppliers, who share our social and ecological goals and values. We work together to protect the environment and improve working conditions.
Corporate responsibility is an inherent part of our long-term strategy. We firmly believe that a competent, trustworthy partner is essential in an increasingly networked and digitised world. Assuming this role, we aim to inspire people and make an important contribution to turning Switzerland into a leading ICT country. Our sustainability strategy helps to ensure our company's long-term success.
