Corporate responsibility

We take responsibility.

Economically

By providing space for industrial and commercial jobs we directly contribute to value generation and to the attractiveness of Switzerland as a production site. We offer the space that is indispensable for a productive economy while cultivating conscientious use of Switzerland's limited available land for development.

Ecologically

By participating in the programme of the Energy Agency of the Swiss Private Sector, we demonstrate our commitment to actively reducing our own CO2 emissions and systematically optimising energy efficiency.

Socially

We promote equal pay for men and women along with the greatest possible diversity of age, sex and nationality. We value the continual personal development of our employees and offer attractive education and training opportunities.

Ethically

We strictly observe all laws, regulations and compliance requirements. We have adopted the RICS Ethical Standards, committing us to uphold integrity, quality, trust and respect.

Corporate responsibility in practice:
