Swift aims to operate responsibly and sustainably. Reducing our impact on the environment and increasing diversity and inclusion within our company are among our top CSR goals. We also extend these objectives to our suppliers and CSR partners.


At Swift, we aim to carry out our daily operations while limiting our impact on the environment. This involves a concrete plan for reducing our carbon emissions and engaging our stakeholders in the process.

We are continuously looking for new ways to reduce our carbon footprint. We recently signed the commitment to the Science Based Target initiative, which aims to set emission reduction targets to limit global warming to 1,5°C above pre-industrial levels.

We focus on these key objectives:

  • Reduce our energy consumption
  • Use green energy whenever possible
  • Support nature conservation projects around the world

All of our offices are energy efficient. In addition, our work-from-home and flexible time policies enable staff to reduce their commuting impact. This way of working allows us to reduce office space, further lowering energy output. We also use green electricity where available and promote a paperless office. We carry out waste sorting and waste reduction campaigns, and promote environmentally friendly behaviour among staff and contractors. In addition, we preserve biodiversity at our headquarters by planting an orchard and wildflower meadow and housing several beehives. Swift regularly finances the planting of trees in developing countries.

The effort to make our data centres more energy efficient is ongoing. A flagship Swift operating centre in Switzerland, which includes 1000 photovoltaic solar panels, is an example of what we hope to achieve more broadly in minimised carbon emissions.

Swift encourages cycling to work as well as the use of electric and hybrid cars amongst staff for an eco-friendly commute.

We reduce the impact of staff travel through carbon offsetting and at Sibos, our largest community event, we invite delegates to act accordingly. At Sibos, Swift also takes a number of ‘green’ measures in the areas of waste management, water consumption, biodiversity, recycling and use of public transport.

To extend our commitment to environmental sustainability to our community, we engage with suppliers and customers as well as our staff.
