Construction companies bear a large social responsibility. Implenia is very aware of this, which is why we strive to develop, plan and build sustainably. As an industry leader, Implenia set itself ambitious new sustainability targets in 2020.
How can sustainability succeed?
Our experts advise on projects as they are being planned.
We make our contribution by trying to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions produced by all our activities. With our own projects we can do this by deploying innovative building and structural techniques and by using materials that require less grey energy. We also minimise the direct consumption of fossil fuels on our construction sites and at our production facilities. In 2020 we formulated our financial, environmental and social sustainability objectives for the next five years. Our claim: we always think about sustainability holistically and take the lead in all its aspects – environmental, financial and social. One of our strategic focuses here is on the real estate development projects that we control ourselves throughout – from planning to hand-over. This control allows us to utilise our skills to maximum effect, but also to set our own standards in terms of sustainability. Implenia’s commitment to sustainability is also reflected in our close collaboration with the Network for Sustainable Construction Switzerland (NNBS) and the WWF, and in our work on the development of the “SEED – Next Generation Living” certification for sustainable neighbourhoods. It is no coincidence that sustainability is one of our five corporate values.
Implenia is publishing its new, reconceived and redesigned Sustainability Report in parallel with the 2020 Annual Report. The Sustainability Report details all of our sustainability objectives and activities in all three dimensions – environmental, financial and social.
