VALSER – Switzerland’s most sustainable mineral water

VALSER Mineralquellen is targeting a 30% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 compared to 2016. The company invests in certified climate projects to offset unavoidable carbon emissions. Thanks to these efforts, VALSER became Switzerland’s first climate-neutral mineral water in 2018.

In collaboration with Swiss Climate, Valser has established comprehensive CO2 management within the company, as part of which it calculates the carbon emissions of all its beverages each year – from the collection of the spring water through to the sale of the finished product. Alongside continuously taking specific measures to reduce carbon emissions, VALSER also continues to focus on becoming climate-neutral. This means that VALSER offsets 100% of its unavoidable residual emissions through high-quality climate protection projects.

Swiss Climate presents high-quality climate protection projects that focus primarily on safe drinking water access and helps Valser to select a suitable project. Swiss Climate then manages all stages of the carbon offsetting process – from the purchasing of credits through to their retirement – and ensures complete transparency and credibility within the process each year. In addition, Swiss Climate helps VALSER to create technically correct and convincing communications.

In order to continuously improve data availability and quality along the value chain, VALSER also strives to work with partners and suppliers more.

‘With Swiss Climate, we have a reliable partner that offers us optimum support with calculating our footprint, analysing data and achieving our climate targets. The team at Swiss Climate is always there for us, even at short notice. Thanks to Swiss Climate’s support, we have been able to approach the reduction of our carbon emissions in a systematic manner and optimise it further with new ideas. We are looking forward to tackling more challenges together with Swiss Climate in the future.’
