Corporate Responsibility

Economic, ecological and social responsibility

Environmental protection and careful use of natural resources are traditional core values in Switzerland. Orell Füssli Ltd. Security Printing, as a Swiss company, is consistently working on improving procedures and products thereby enabling sustainable development.

Our historic ambition has always been to run our business in an environmentally friendly manner. Waste prevention, recycling, careful use of resources and use of public transportation are a part of our daily operations. Environmental factors are systematically evaluated when reviewing new projects. We require that our main suppliers adhere to strict standards in terms of corporate responsibility and the respect of the environment.

In the fight against corruption and bribery in the banknote industry, the Banknote Ethics Initiative (BnEI) has created an accreditation with verifiable standards and requirements. This initiative was established to provide ethical business practice standards in the banknote industry. As a proud accredited member, we ensure that all our actions adhere to these highest of ethical standards.

As a member of BnEI, we adhere to a strict Code of Ethical Business Practice and we must pass audits carried out by a third party auditor on a regular basis.
