We are proud to share that we are the industry leader in the categories of ‘multi-utility electricity and heating’ and ‘heating’. The Swiss Federal Office of Energy’s benchmarking exercise assesses Swiss energy providers every two years in terms of their contribution to the Swiss government’s Energy Strategy 2050. Assessments are made based on the core objectives of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
For the sixth time in succession, EcoVadis, the market leader in sustainability assessments, has awarded us the gold medal for our consistent efforts in the field of sustainability.
With a score of 72 (out of a maximum 100), we are among the top 5 per cent of companies evaluated worldwide. This rating inspires us to keep on advancing our sustainability strategy.
Each year, EcoVadis assesses around 90,000 companies from 200 sectors in 160 countries. Their evaluation methodology is based on 56 criteria in the fields of environment, labour conditions and human rights, corporate ethics, and procurement.
We create a healthy, fair environment, minimise our environmental footprint and achieve sustainable business success. Our certified management systems are proof, with our quality and process management certified according to ISO 9001 (in German), our environmental and energy management according to ISO 14001 (in German) and ISO 50001 (in German), and our health and safety management according to ISO 45001 (in German).
In January 2020, the City of Zurich became the first civic institution to receive the Swiss LGBTI Label (in German). The label recognises companies and organisations that promote an open, inclusive, respectful culture with respect to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex individuals.
The Swiss LGBTI Label is awarded on the basis of a self-declaration using a survey. The declared measures are substantiated by document submissions. Among the elements assessed are mission statement and strategy, concrete measures and projects, human resources policy, statutory provisions, binding requirements, and communication.
The issuing committee announced in November 2019 that the City of Zurich had fulfilled the comprehensive requirements for the Swiss LGBTI Label, which was issued for a period of three years.
