Respecting the environment

The environment is a primary focus of our strategy and a central component of our long-term vision for growth.

  • We minimise the environmental impact of our activities, products and services.
  • We improve our environmental performance through the use of innovative technologies.
  • We comply with statutory requirements, take the best environmental standards into account and apply the requirements of the ISO 14001 standard.

Social equality

Mindful of the personal development of our employees, we are convinced that the quality of our products and services depends to a large extent on their well-being.

  • We invest in continuous training ; 2/3 of our employees attend at least one training course per year, and we also take on many internees and apprentices annually.
  • We ensure pay equality between men and women – for equal skills and experience, an equivalent salary.

Economic performance

We support innovation and the economic development of the Canton.

  • We invest in the maintenance and development of infrastructure.
  • Our financial management is rigorous and our sales are stable. We have lowered the average price of electricity over the last 10 years.
  • We are constantly reducing our dependence on resources, which allows us to make significant savings.

SIG's ambition: Be an exemplary company

Exemplary company

Reducing one’s impact on the environment also involves changing habits and behaviours. At SIG, all employees are involved in this. And the results speak for themselves: the head office building in Lignon is twice as energy hungry as other industrial buildings in Switzerland!
