“The Confederation: exemplary in energy” group

More efficient by a quarter

Despite some strong growth, Swiss Post reduced its energy consumption by a total of 7 percent (base year 2006). Energy efficiency was increased by 27 percent. This is confirmed by the latest calculations of “The Confederation: exemplary in energy” group, which in addition to Swiss Post also includes the Federal Administration, the ETH sector, Swisscom, Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), Skyguide and Genève Aéroport. The collective measures undertaken by these stakeholders focus on buildings and renewable energy, mobility, data centers and green IT. Among the measures implemented by Swiss Post were renewing its transport fleet with more energy-efficient railway wagons and removing its last petrol scooter from service. In addition, the tube lighting in the letter centers is also being replaced by LED lights.
