Certas – a Swiss company committed to climate protection in Switzerland

With around 160 employees, Certas AG is a specialist in professional alarm management. As a Swiss company serving Switzerland, it sets high standards for itself and takes its environmental responsibilities seriously. Certas is keen to play its part for the environment.

Certas has been certified according to ISO 14001 since 2013. It aims to reduce the company’s environmental impact by reducing the consumption of energy and raw materials. Since 2018, Certas has been awarded the Swiss Climate label ‘Certified CO2 neutral’ every year and it takes specific measures to cut its emissions. These include building photovoltaic systems, reducing waste, switching the vehicle fleet to electric and raising awareness among its employees.

The remaining emissions are offset through a climate protection project in Switzerland that is a good fit for Certas. By supporting the local project, Certas not only contributes to climate protection in Switzerland but also promotes biodiversity and the local economy. On a visit to a forest project in Schwyz in 2022, Certas’ employees were able to see and experience how climate protection works in practice. The technical explanations of the two forest wardens gave them a better understanding of the environment. It also highlighted the main reason why Certas makes big efforts to collect data for the carbon footprint every year: to contribute towards local climate protection.

Swiss Climate provided the following services on this project:

  • CO2 management
  • Carbon offsetting
