As a member of the Climate Foundation Switzerland, we donate a significant portion of our re-distributed CO2 levies to the foundation which then uses these funds to support climate protection projects at small and medium-sized Swiss enterprises. In 2016, projects supported by the Climate Foundation included a scheme to produce vegetable carbon, a reusable system for takeaway food containers and a method to identify leaks in gas pipes more rapidly. These projects also have a positive impact on economic growth and help to enhance the efficiency of the Swiss economy.
