Environmental responsibility

We are well aware of our environmental impact. Astute management of resources is a top priority at the Group level and at every centre of competence.

Three cen­tral sus­tain­abil­ity is­sues were iden­ti­fied within the area of en­vi­ron­men­tal re­spon­si­bil­ity: pack­ag­ing and food waste, cli­mate and en­ergy and wa­ter.

Packaging and food waste:

For years, we have been optimising our production processes and logistics to reduce the volume of waste we produce. Equally important for the reduction of packaging and food waste is even closer collaboration with our partners.

Our ambition: By 2025, we aim to reduce our waste intensity by at least 25% compared to our 2018 baseline.

Climate and energy:

World energy consumption is steadily increasing and has become one of the most challenging environmental issues of our times. We believe it is our duty to continue our efforts to reduce our energy consumption and protect the climate for future generations.

Our ambition: By 2025, we aim to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions intensity by 10% compared to our 2018 baseline.


Water is a global issue. In Switzerland, water availability is not in jeopardy at the present time. Nevertheless, rather than viewing this as an immutable given, we are endeavouring to use this resource sparingly and wisely.

Our ambition: By 2025, we aim to reduce our water intensity by 15% compared to our 2018 baseline.
