Sustainability at Avadis Vorsorge AG

Words and deeds. We deliver what we promise.

Sustainability – an important matter

Covering the areas of environment, social and corporate governance, the topic of sustainability plays an important role in our company.


Reduction of carbon emissions

We continuously reduce our energy and resource requirements. Carbon emissions that cannot be avoided are fully compensated for by myclimate. We encourage our employees to use public transport by offering them a Half Fare Travelcard. For business trips by car, we rely on Mobility. Our company premises are situated in central locations and are easily accessible by public transport. The use of new communication technologies minimises the number of business trips. We also offer the option of working from home, which helps reduce commuter traffic.



We offer free water, hot drinks and fruit on our premises. Our modern, centrally located and light-filled offices have ergonomic workstations. Mental and physical health is important to us, which is why we provide all employees and their families with access to external programmes such as Lyra.


We regularly support aid and other non-profit organisations both at home and abroad.

Further training

We are partner of libs, the leading training company in the Swiss engineering, electrical and metal industry. Together we regularly train apprentices. We also offer several internships. In addition, Avadis provides financial support for the development of employees through training and development programmes.

Work-life balance

We promote a healthy work-life balance by offering flexible working hours, part-time work at all levels, at least 6 weeks’ holiday, a 40-hour week, working from home and financial support for external childcare.

Corporate governance

Code of Conduct

Our employees are subject to a code of conduct. It describes how employees avoid conflicts of interest and prohibits all activities that result in unapproved additional income in connection with the Avadis position. The Code of Conduct is based on the ASIP Charta. An important framework for the daily work is the “Prudent Man Rule”.

Compliance Office

Our Compliance Office, which is separate from the business divisions in terms of organisation and personnel, monitors and enforces compliance with legal, regulatory and internal requirements.

Personal safety and data security

Personal safety and the security of the data entrusted to us are very important to us. Various occupational safety measures have been implemented. A range of training courses cover topics such as ethical behaviour, handling electronic means of communication, data protection and phishing.

Staff Council

Our internal employee representatives (Staff Council) have extensive rights of participation and a say in personnel and corporate policy decisions. The Staff Council acts in the interests of all employees in all dealings with the employer.


We embrace inclusion, diversity and equality within the company. Our company employs people from different backgrounds, genders, age groups, religions, disabilities and sexual orientations. Almost half of all management positions in the company are held by women.
