Commitment to the environment and society

Switzerland's mechanical and electrical engineering industries (MEM industries) create innovative products and technologies and thus make a significant contribution to sustainable business.

In order to achieve the targets set by the UN's 2030 Agenda, we will need new technical solutions for every area of our lives. The Swiss mechanical and electrical engineering industries (MEM industries) are playing a crucial role in this work. With their energy- and resource-efficient products, they are helping to reduce greenhouse gases worldwide. Moreover, the MEM industries are constantly optimizing their production processes. For example, Swissmem's member companies have reduced their CO2 emissions by a significant 55% since 1990.

Swissmem is committed to environmentally-friendly industrial production and responsible and efficient use of natural resources. At the same time, it advocates market economy principles and corporate accountability. Furthermore, Swissmem also takes its social responsibility seriously and, as part of its skilled worker strategy, implements a range of measures and training offerings to help develop young talent, create a better balance between work and family life, and support older workers.
