Corporate responsibility strategy 

We’re acting now for tomorrow

Socially responsible employer, responsible procurement, sustainable customer solutions, the common good, climate and energy: in terms of responsible action, these are Swiss Post’s five priority areas of action.

For this reason, it is pursuing a corporate strategy that is responsible, climate-friendly and committed to ethical principles.
