Sustainability Active environmental management
Post Real Estate maintains an active environmental management system in accordance with ISO 14001.
The environmental policy practised at Post Real Estate is derived from the Swiss Post sustainability strategy and climate target and is integrated into the management, business and support processes.
With the “Casa Verde” initiative, Post Real Estate ensures that the correct sustainability measures in the real estate sector are implemented in the right place at the right time across Swiss Post. The initiative contains measures relating to the areas of energy and buildings, support for other Swiss Post units, and management and operations.
Swiss Post has set itself an ambitious climate goal to tackle climate change: it wants to be carbon neutral by 2040. Post Real Estate is making a significant contribution to Swiss Post’s climate goal. Below are a few examples:
- Post Real Estate is working to remove heating systems which use fossil fuels. By 2030, the heating systems in around 80% of our buildings will be replaced with renewable alternatives, such as heat pumps, pellets or district heating.
- It is also investing in e-mobility infrastructure and, in doing so, will enable carbon-neutral deliveries in future, as well as passenger transport with alternative fuel sources.
- Post Real Estate also operates photovoltaic systems on the roofs of letter and parcel centers. Swiss Post is one of the pioneering companies in the implementation of solar panels on its premises and has been promoting the construction of photovoltaic systems since 2011. Swiss Post now operates some of Switzerland’s largest photovoltaic systems.
