Energy and climate
PostFinance aims to be completely climate-neutral within the company by 2030 and to have achieved net zero across all activities by 2040. One of the main ways in which PostFinance is reducing its CO2 emissions is by running its data centres on electricity which comes entirely from renewable sources.
Under the EEC initiative, PostFinance has pledged to meet the following targets:
1. Increasing energy efficiency
- Target for 2026: +55%
- Target for 2030: +90%
2. Switching to renewable energies
Thermal energy and fuels
- Target for 2026: 65% renewables
- Target for 2030: 85% renewables
All PostFinance’s electricity already comes from renewable sources.
3. Producing green power
- Production in 2021: 8.8GWh
- Target for 2030: 26MWp
This data applies to the entire Swiss Post Group.
Like all the participants, PostFinance has undertaken to implement the joint measures. In addition, PostFinance is also implementing the following individual measures:
1. Net zero from 2040
Group target for 2030: Swiss Post’s in-house operations to be climate-neutral (emissions to be reduced by 42 per cent compared with 2021, the remaining emissions to be offset)
Up-to-date information on the implementation status of this participant’s targets and measures is published in our Energy and Climate Report. PostFinance also provides information on its own website about its commitments in the area of energy and climate.
