Direct environmental impact

BCV is committed to preserving the environment and continuing to reduce the environmental footprint of our operations.

Measuring and reducing our carbon footprint

Every year since 2008, we have assessed our overall carbon footprint.


We have set a target of cutting our direct CO2 emissions by 35% from 2019 levels by 2030, in line with federal and cantonal government targets.

By end-2023, we had already reduced our emissions by 27%.

Concrete measures


- Promoting green commuting

- Contributing to the commuting costs of employees who do not have a BCV parking space


- Improving the energy efficiency of our buildings: CHF 1.7 2 million invested in 20222023

- Cutting energy consumption by 29% since 2019 in 2023


- Reducing paper consumption by digitizing our processes

- Making employees aware of how much paper they use

- Using recycled paper

Responsible, local sourcing

At BCV, we source locally as a matter of policy:

  • Over 90% of our procurement spend goes to suppliers based in Vaud or elsewhere in Switzerland.
  • We work with a large pool of facilities management contractors and regularly switch between suppliers.
  • Each year, we work with over 600 businesses based in our Canton.

In this way, we both contribute to the local economy and limit our impact on the environment.



Since 2019, we’ve been working with Swiss Climate, a sustainability consultancy, to support climate-change mitigation projects. We are certified CO2 Neutral by Swiss Climate.
