As one of the main partners of the ENERGY CHALLENGE 2016, Swisscom hopes to work with the Swiss population to campaign for sustainable energy use. For this purpose, Swisscom will be participating in a nationwide roadshow from June 2016, together with the Swiss Federal Office of Energy and the other main partners of the ENERGY CHALLENGE 2016.
Swisscom is the national partner of the Solar Impulse project by Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg. The aim: to fly around the world in an aircraft exclusively powered by solar energy. Swisscom has developed an energy-saving satellite communication solution for the aircraft in this unique project.
The main aim of the Federal Social Insurance Office (FSIO) National Media Literacy Programme is to promote safe, age-appropriate, responsible use of digital media by children and minors. Parents, teachers and caregivers are supplied with targeted information, assistance and tips to provide children and minors with appropriate support. Swisscom is the main partner of the programme and coordinates its commitment in the area of media skills and youth media protection with the FSIO.
The 'Energy and Climate Pioneers' initiative offers school classes the opportunity to conduct their own climate protection projects We jointly launched the initiative with Solar Impulse and myclimate. We feel it is important to show children and young people that they can also play an active part in protecting the climate.
In order to ensure compliance with the ecological and social standards demanded by us, we perform regular checks on the elimination of identified weaknesses. Within the JAC, ten telco companies plan and conduct CR audits of their suppliers together. Swisscom has been a member of the JAC since 2012.
