Victorinox has a comprehensive waste disposal concept for liquid and solid substances. Materials are sorted, separated, and recycled as a matter of course.
Victorinox has also played a key role in the development of recycling plants for grinding sludge. Today, around 600 tons of grinding sludge at the headquarters in Ibach-Schwyz is recycled every year.
The waste heat from production processes is used to heat the production sites in Ibach-Schwyz and 120 homes nearby. This measure has also helped raise awareness of environmental issues among employees.
Processes have been optimized on a sustainable basis and technical innovations have been introduced, enabling Victorinox’s environmental footprint to be significantly reduced.
