Sustainability

Victorinox received an award from the Swiss Environmental Foundation in 2008, in recognition of the efforts made to preserve our habitats. This award has motivated the entire company to take a sustainable approach to the environment and its resources.

Environmental Awareness

Victorinox has a comprehensive waste disposal concept for liquid and solid substances. Materials are sorted, separated, and recycled as a matter of course.

Victorinox has also played a key role in the development of recycling plants for grinding sludge. Today, around 600 tons of grinding sludge at the headquarters in Ibach-Schwyz is recycled every year.

The waste heat from production processes is used to heat the production sites in Ibach-Schwyz and 120 homes nearby. This measure has also helped raise awareness of environmental issues among employees.

Processes have been optimized on a sustainable basis and technical innovations have been introduced, enabling Victorinox’s environmental footprint to be significantly reduced.
