Environment, objectives and management approach
Swisscom aims to work together with its customers to save twice as much CO2 as it emits throughout the entire company including the supply chain by 2020. This undertaking has been summarised as the “2:1 target”. The ratio between savings and emissions at the end of 2015 was around 0.81.
The environmental and purchasing policies provide a framework for Swisscom to use its resources sustainably. Management norms, standards and internal policies allow the planned saving and efficiency measures to be systematically implemented. Swisscom subsidiaries with operations that are of significant environmental importance are ISO-14001-certified. These are Swisscom (Switzerland) Ltd, Swisscom Broadcast Ltd and cablex Ltd, which are certified to ISO 9001, too. The Italian subsidiary Fastweb S.p.A. is also ISO-14001-certified. The management systems and processes certified to ISO 14001 cover more than 96.2% of the Swisscom Group (including Fastweb) by headcount.
