What we do for sustainability

We are committed to innovation, to continuously improving our contribution to a better world by focusing on the three sustainable pillars: environment, society, and economy.

“Living up to our legacy as Makers of the Original Swiss Army Knife™, our aim naturally is to be successful over the long term by providing compelling products and services on the global market. But protecting and preserving the world for future generations is just as important. We therefore see it as our responsibility to make sure our operations and those of our suppliers support economically, environmentally and socially sustainable goals.”

Carl Elsener, CEO, Victorinox
