The "Exemplary Energy and Climate" initiative is one of the measures contained in the Energy Strategy 2050. It is aimed at the main Swiss providers of publicly relevant services that are seeking to operate in an innovative and exemplary manner in terms of energy. By signing a declaration of intent, they are making a commitment to play their part in the realisation of the Paris Agreement 2015.
The fifteen participants are continuously increasing their energy efficiency and consistently switching to renewable energies. Towards this end, they are expanding the production of electricity from ecological sources. They are implementing 15 predefined joint measures in the areas of management, procurement and operations as well as numerous individual measures. In terms of energy efficiency, ecological electricity production and the share of renewable heating/cooling and fuels, the participants have set individual target values to achieve by 2026 and 2030, respectively, whereas the share of renewable electricity is to be 100 percent for all of them by 2026 at the latest.
The participants report transparently on their target achievement and share their experiences so that other companies and organisations can also benefit from them. It's easier together!
