ENVIRONMENT

Access to the digital world takes energy. UPC is convinced that both operation of its network and company growth can take place sustainably. To underscore this goal, we have made a target agreement commitment to the Federation to continuously improve our energy efficiency through concrete measures.

Use of resources

at our locations

UPC’s headquarters in Wallisellen are extremely energy efficient, thanks to the Minergie standard. The building adheres to the strict guidelines of the 2000-watt society, for example by using geothermal energy for cooling and heating. As of summer 2019 we have banished single-use articles such as coffee cups at most of our locations. This allows us to save more than 2 tonnes of waste per year in Wallisellen.

 Solar energy production

Since summer 2010, we have been producing our own solar power at the headend in Monte Carasso. The system generates around 11,000 kWh of electricity annually.
