Carbon footprint: Essential for every company, but not rocket science
Sooner or later, every company will have to deal with the issue of sustainability. In Switzerland, a new climate protection law is currently being drafted, which stipulates that all Swiss companies must achieve the Federal Council's net zero target by 2050. You have the choice of complying with the regulations only at the last minute or positioning yourself as a pioneer and starting with ambitious measures now. Starting work early is crucial, especially for the medtech sector, because planned changes to medical devices require time-consuming approval. A first step towards sustainability is the climate accounting of companies. Holger Hoffmann-Riem (sustainability expert at Go for Impact) will guide you through the legal requirements and reveal that preparing a carbon footprint is not rocket science, but – well accompanied – a manageable task for all companies. As usual, you can ask your questions before and during the webinar.
