We are ready to do our part to protect the environment and the climate. We want to reduce our CO2 emissions to net zero by 2025. And together with our customers, save 1 million tonnes of CO2 per year. Discover how we are consistently extending our lead as the world's most sustainable telecommunications company.
Fully climate-neutral company
Over 90% reduction in direct CO2 emissions compared to 1990
From fuel, thermal energy consumption and purchased electricity
Swisscom's operations have been climate-neutral since 2020. We want to reduce our direct CO2 emissions by over 90% by 2025 compared to 1990. By avoiding emissions thanks to the use of 100% renewable energy since 2010 as well as increasing our energy efficiency and electrifying our vehicle fleet. The remaining emissions have been compensated since 2020.
* The Scope 2 emissions 1990 and 2000 are based on calculations.
For example, from supply chains, transport, waste disposal, business travel
Indirect CO2 emissions, which are mainly generated in the supply chain, have been systematically recorded since 2013. We have reduced them by 35% as of 2020 and aim to reduce them by a further 25% until 2025. We offset the remaining emissions.

Annual reductions with customers
Additional climate protection contribution through sustainable offers
All details in tonnes. Swisscom is already helping customers to make massive CO2 savings with climate-friendly innovative ICT solutions. We want to expand this positive contribution to climate protection to over one million tonnes of CO2 per year by 2025. This corresponds to 2% of Switzerland's total greenhouse gas emissions. For more information, see the interview with Saskia Günther, Head of Corporate Responsibility, and the Climate Report 2020.
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.
