Sustainability is anchored in the corporate culture of Swisslog and KUKA.

We also do this because we have a responsibility to society and the environment.

Sustainability in all areas 

At Swisslog, sustainability means responsible business practices aimed at protecting the environment and resources. We have a responsibility to our employees, customers and investors as well as to society and the environment. That is why we work hard to ensure that the company continues to develop sustainably. We strive for sustainability in all areas:

  • Social policy
  • Energy, environment and resources
  • Economy

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.

Environmental sustainability: efficient use of energy and resources

More and more people rely on increasingly rare resources. For Swisslog, resources saving and energy-efficient processes that reduce CO₂ emissions are particularly important. That is why we are committed to energy efficiency in systems engineering through the use of green technologies and products, such as Green Logistics Solutions (White Paper) with the GreenLog label.


Environmental management systems and certificates

Through our environmental management system and energy management system, we ensure that the approach, extent and impact of our activities, products and services are appropriate. That is why we are continuously improving this management system and working to avoid environmental pollution. As a result of the recent activities regarding energy management in Germany, we are proud to use Green Energy in our Swisslog location in Dortmund.
