Sustainability

Responsible action determines the future viability of Swiss companies. In doing so, it is important to reconcile economic interests with social and environmental aspects. In order to achieve our ecological, social and economic goals, we at Livesystems AG strategically anchor the principles of sustainability in our projects, processes and products.

Environment

By constantly improving our internal processes and optimizing our products, we reduce our ecological footprint in order to achieve the energy and climate goals of the Swiss 2000-watt society.

Company

Nos clients, nos partenaires et nos collaborateurs sont notre bien le plus précieux. Par l'estime, la transparence et l'habilitation, nous souhaitons créer en permanence une base positive pour la collaboration et devenir l'un des employeurs suisses les plus appréciés.

Governance

We work to be the number 1 DOOH provider in the Swiss advertising market. To achieve this, we value fair competition, adherence to compliance guidelines and codes of ethics as well as the security of our IT and our customers' data.

Sustainability Management

The task of our sustainability management is to implement the objectives defined in the sustainability strategy with the help of appropriate methods and measures, to determine the degree of achievement of the objectives and to communicate our successes effectively, as well as the potential for optimization.

In addition to external standards for responsible corporate management, the principles formulated in the company's charter and guidelines serve as guidance in this regard.

An important element of our commitment to sustainability is the annual report (from 2023 onwards) in accordance with the requirements of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) as well as the company's life cycle assessment, including the emissions balance according to the GHG Protocol (Scope 2), which we will carry out for the first time for the reference year 2021.

Environment

In everything we do, we leave a footprint. We aim to keep it as low as possible and to avoid as much as possible the negative effects of our business activities on the environment.

Reducing emissions and increasing our energy and resource efficiency in order to achieve science-based national and global climate goals (such as the Swiss 2000-watt society and the Paris climate goals) is a central strategic task for us. We focus on the topics of energy and emissions, procurement, materials and recycling.

Livesystems Sustainability - Umwelt

Energy & Emissions

We will electrify our fleet of vehicles by 2030, an important step towards our goal of climate neutrality by 2040. Of course, we also ensure that the electricity we use for our offices, digital displays and vehicles is certified green electricity, for example from Swiss hydro and solar power. As a Swiss Post Group company, we offset our current CO2 emissions through Swiss Post and in regional environmental projects of our cooperation partner Climate Partner.

Procurement & Materials

When procuring new inventory, we take care to use energy-efficient technologies, pure resource-saving materials and modular construction. This allows us, for example, to replace the LED components of our displays individually, without having to replace the entire display. Short supply chains help to further reduce our carbon footprint. That's why we work mainly with national and European suppliers. We have defined sustainable purchasing criteria in corresponding guidelines.

Recycling

Our goal is to reduce the volume of waste per employee by 5% per year. We have already succeeded in significantly reducing the number of PET bottles by providing all our employees with stainless steel bottles bearing our brand. The introduction of an efficient recycling system at all locations, "plastic-free" action days and other awareness-raising measures are further steps on the road to optimization.

Company

It is very important to us that the people we come into contact with on a daily basis are satisfied. In order to become one of the most attractive employers in Switzerland, we focus on the topics of health, equal opportunities, inclusion and diversity as well as training and further education.

As a digital out-of-home provider with a strong reach, we also use our media presence to increase public awareness of sustainability issues.

Health & Safety at work

By 2022, we have set ourselves the goal of establishing systematic health management in the company in order to intensively promote the well-being of our employees. Ergonomic workplaces are just as important as flexible working models or extended maternity leave.

Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Equal rights and diversity in terms of age, gender, religion, origin, political convictions and language are naturally experienced at our eight Swiss locations. In the future, we also want to actively integrate people with physical or mental disabilities into our organization and create a barrier-free working environment.

Education & Training

In a time of constant change and increasingly complex requirements, professional and personal development opportunities form the basis for long-term success. Active empowerment and extended decision-making scope are the greatest intrinsic motivators for our teams. Each employee also has access to an annual training budget, supplemented by competency-based internal training and a mentoring program for the onboarding of new colleagues.

Governance

Long-term business success requires credibility, respect, a forward-looking mindset and always fresh ideas. Compliance, IT and data security, digitization as well as innovation and technology are central aspects of Livesystems in the context of responsible corporate governance.

Compliance

Our compliance guidelines form the basis for fair competition and are in line with international guidelines. They strengthen trust in our company and at the same time demand respect for human rights in our supply chain.

IT and Data Security

Our requirements for the protection of internal information and customer data are based on the international information security standard ISO 27001. In a continuous process, we optimize our software solutions and work processes to meet all audit requirements.

Digitalization

Our digital competencies allow us to position ourselves as a driving force behind the digital transformation of the public space in Switzerland. In this way, we are successfully contributing to barrier-free access to information for citizens in the spirit of its "Smart City". By making good use of available data and digital know-how, we enable our customers to benefit from customized offers and flexible action.

Innovation & Technology

We tap into new market potential by investing in energy-efficient processing technologies and attractive solutions for our customers. For us, sustainable innovation means creating new or improved products, services, technologies and processes that offer positive added value to our stakeholders. To achieve this, we rely both on internal incubation through targeted idea management within our teams and on external partnerships.
