Other environmental aspects in the company

It takes not only energy but also a multitude of materials to operate telecommunications networks. Swisscom therefore pays attention to its ecological operation. As part of its environmental management system according to ISO 14001, it processes other environmental aspects systematically and has significantly optimised its operation with regard to its ecological footprint. Outside the energy field, other reduction targets and measures currently still lead to relatively few improvements. Swisscom therefore aims to reduce consumption with the other environmental aspects or at worst to limit it to the same level as in the previous year. It is also focusing increasingly on qualitative measures such as selection, recycling and reuse of materials.
