People are the heart of our sustainability strategy
With a commitment that starts at the very top of our organization and extends to every facility, the people of Swisslog are driving sustainability for our business, our customers and our planet.
Whether it’s developing new material handling technology or biking to work, the day-to-day decisions we make within our organization are what drives sustainability at Swisslog.
It starts with a dedicated executive team that has set ambitious goals for continuing improvements in product design, operational efficiency and the sustainability and recyclability of the products we purchase. But at Swisslog, the responsibility for sustainability doesn’t rest on the shoulders of a small team. Sustainability is everyone’s job.
Social sustainability: for employees and society
For us, the health of our employees is of the greatest importance. We strive to create a flexible and healthy work environment. This includes the compatibility of family and working life. This is why we pursue a sustainable human resources policy and encourage work/life balance through options such as flextime work or telecommuting. Swisslog employees regularly meet for sports activities and are encouraged to stay active through "Bike to Work" and other programs.
Empowering Creativity and Action
Our “Think Red: Go Green” program keeps sustainability top-of-mind across our organization and empowers every employee to make decisions that consider the impact on the environment.
Think Red: Go Green is based on a simple philosophy: our daily decisions have consequences and working together we can have greater impact than any single individual working alone.
Where it’s choosing a reusable water bottle over a single-use plastic cup, biking to work once or twice a week, or consistently recycling, small decisions amplified across our organization produce big results.
By raising awareness of sustainability, Think Red: Go Green also spurs creativity and global action. When one of our offices replaced plastic cups with glass, we made a corporate decision to phase out single-use plastic cups, plastic water bottles and paper towels in all of our offices. Our marketing team took this initiative a step further and developed a "no plastics" exhibit for one of our major trade shows.
Externally, we’ve reinforced our commitment to GreenLog, a comprehensive program for improving supply chain sustainability through our solutions and business practices.
Through GreenLog, we are enabling our customers to enhance their sustainability with more efficient products and less wasteful processes. Our line of GreenLog products gives our customers the confidence that they are choosing the most energy-efficient solutions, supported by an organization committed to sustainability.
At the Forefront of Change
Through Think Red: Go Green and GreenLog we have a comprehensive approach to sustainability that empowers employees and will continue to drive change across our organization and within our industry.
