Swisstainable promotes a transition towards a sustainable economy by means of a mindset change: enterprises must understand that their long-term future relies on their ability to sustain economic growth, to engage the community and to enrich the environment where they operate.

Our vision follows the “triple bottom line” concept where company performance is measured on three interrelated areas: People, Planet and Profit.




Social focus – People

Providing a positive return to the company’s employees and to the communities in which the company operates.








Environmental focus – Planet

Ensuring a positive impact on the environment.





Economic focus –Profit

Improving the company’s long-term economic success.
