Quilvest (Switzerland) Ltd. (QVS) has been dedicated to improving its carbon footprint over the last years. After the successful launch of our ESG charter, our goal was to identify sources and to estimate amounts of carbon dioxide emissions caused by QVS. Interestingly, around 80% of our CO2 emissions were caused by business travelling, followed by employee commuting (9%) and office heating (8%) – factors we will continuously work on.
Our emissions have been audited by Swiss Climate and were labelled as satisfactory, which is why we can proudly announce having received the certificate “CO2-Optimised” by Swiss Climate for the year 2021. The certificate, which is valid until 2027 and yearly reviewed, demonstrates our dedication to a holistic and integrated CO2 management.
The “CO2-Optimised” certificate attests QVS the knowledge of opportunities and risks in relation to climate change, the knowledge of the most significant sources of emissions and areas of action as well as the definition of absolute or relative reduction targets. We are looking forward to further discussing the QVS climate strategy, reduction of caused emissions and related measures in the future.
