Sustainability Report 2023

BKW is strengthening its sustainability strategy along the SUCCESS framework. This comprises seven action areas: From the reduction of our own impact on climate change and the careful use of resources, to social aspects in corporate management. For example, in 2023 BKW has set itself the goal of reducing its greenhouse gas emissions in the Energy business to net zero by 2040 and electrifying its vehicle fleet by 2030.

We see ourselves as a committed part of the solution as we advance towards a sustainable economy and society. We take a holistic view of sustainability management, which is an integral component of our corporate management. With our projects and solutions, we demonstrate how energy and transport infrastructures can align through the principles of environmental, social and economic sustainability. We thereby make a significant contribution to reducing carbon emissions and minimising dependence on fossil fuels.
