Sustainability at Avadis Vorsorge AG
Words and deeds. We deliver what we promise.
Sustainability – an important matter
The topic of sustainability is broadly anchored in our company and covers the areas of environment, social affairs and corporate governance. The sustainable investment of the assets entrusted to us is of great importance.
Reduction of CO2 emissions
We continuously reduce our energy and resource requirements. CO2 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 season ticket. For business trips by car, we use a Mobility subscription.
We regularly support aid and other non-profit organisations in Switzerland and abroad.
Support in education
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.
Promoting the reconciliation of work and family life
We support our employees with professional, external childcare and encourage part-time work at all levels.
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».
We have a Compliance Office, which is organisationally and personnel-wise separate from the business units, which monitors and enforces compliance with legal, regulatory and internal requirements.
We have an internal employee representation (employee council) with extensive rights of participation and co-determination. The employees' council represents the overall interests of all employees vis-à-vis the employer.
