Climate & Environmental Targets

Sunrise sets climate targets for the end of 2022 for both direct and selected indirect climate emissions, and in doing so wants to meet its own responsibility in the area of climate protection.

By switching to 100% renewable electricity in 2016, it has already been possible to make significant savings (approx. 600t CO2 annually) in direct climate emissions (Scope 2).  Now Sunrise would like to go one step further and save a total of 20% (308tCO2) of direct CO2 emissions from 2019 by the end of 2022. This is to be achieved largely through the increased inclusion of e-mobility in the company fleet and the optimization of mobility solutions. The proportion of electric vehicles in the company fleet shall reach 40% by the end of 2022.

In addition, Sunrise wants to save 20% of emissions from commuting by employees and 10% of emissions from business flights by the end of 2022 through a state of the art and innovative mobility and flexible working model.

20% reduction of CO2 emissions from commuting behaviour of employees (527t CO2)

10% reduction of emissions from business flights (85t CO2)

By defining energy efficiency objectives, Sunrise seeks to make its environmental protection efforts measurable and assessable. The goal is to increase energy efficiency by at least 13.5% (based on 2012 levels) by 2022 as part of the Company’s voluntary efficiency agreement with the Swiss Federal Government. Sunrise has already increased its energy efficiency by 14% in 2019 and will therefore surpass the original target set in 2012.
