Sustainable solutions for a future worth living

Climate change, urbanisation, scarce resources and habitat loss are challenging our society. We are helping to build a future worth living by supplying sustainable solutions in the fields of energy, buildings and infrastructure.

Our responsibility

We assume our social responsibility for sustainable development. As an international, forward-looking energy and infrastructure service provider, we use the latest technologies and innovations to handle our resources efficiently. We increase energy efficiency, reduce energy consumption and strengthen the resilience of living spaces and infrastructures.

By investing in renewable energies, intelligent grids, sustainable infrastructure and innovative storage and control solutions, we are making a significant contribution to reducingcarbonemissions and minimising dependence on fossil fuels. In this way, we are contributing to the UN’s 2030 Agenda development goals. We also align our commitment to sustainability with the principles of the UN Global Compact (UNGC).

The market and society require new solutions for a carbon-free world. The climate objectives can only be achieved if the key issues of buildings, energy and infrastructure are viewed holistically. We meet this aspiration thanks to our technical expertise and comprehensive competencies: using a holistic approach, we combine energy and building solutions with supply and transport infrastructure.

In this way, we make a significant contribution to sustainable social and economic development. We meet growing customer demand for innovative solutions – and create the foundation for the living spaces of the future.

The focus for us is on investments in energy efficiency, in the accelerated expansion of renewable energies and in the electrification of the heat and transport sectors. We are taking advantage of the new opportunities presented by the movement towards electrification and gearing our business model consistently towards new customer and market needs. As an energy and infrastructure service provider for the world of tomorrow, BKW creates added value for employees, customers and shareholders.

Sustainable partnerships in sport, culture and society

Our responsibility is also reflected in the diversity of our commitments to sport, culture and society. For example, we’re working with our partner Swiss-Ski to make this sport more sustainable. We also offer event organisers and partners a sustainability tool and support in the form of well-founded data for producing their sustainability reports. In collaboration with our partners, this enables us to raise awareness in the events sector – and make it more sustainable, too.

Reusing construction materials

[Translate to Englisch (International):]

Raw materials should be used efficiently and for as long as possible. A majority of construction waste can be cleaned and reused, even when dismantling the Mühleberg Nuclear Power Plant.
