AT A GLANCE
As the leading Swiss enterprise specializing in comprehensive risk, insurance and pension benefits consulting as well as the Swiss partner of Marsh, we want to make a valuable contribution to sustainable development. Our efforts in this area focus on reducing our own carbon emissions and protecting our employees’ health and wellbeing. In addition, we want to make our clients and partners aware of this issue and encourage them to act sustainably.
SWISS TRIPLE IMPACT
The Swiss Triple Impact is a solution-oriented sustainability program for businesses. It was developed by B Lab Switzerland, a leading organization in systems change that works to transform the global economy to benefit all people and communities, and the planet.
The Swiss Triple Impact program was co-initiated by the Swiss federal government (SDC) and the Global Compact Network Switzerland & Liechtenstein. It is aligned with the national and international 2030 Agenda, based on the framework of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
In October 2022 Kessler was added to the STI Directory, which lists Swiss companies that have taken credible pledges to contribute to the SDGs. Businesses that are listed in the STI Directory go through a performance review process in which B Lab Switzerland assesses each pledge’s significance to sustainability, as well as a detailed action plan drawn up by the business to demonstrate how it will achieve its pledges. STI Directory Leaders have completed the SDG Action Manager online tool about all their prioritized SDGs, and also provided a signed commitment letter from the CEO. swisstripleimpact.ch/stidirectory
EcoVadis, the world’s leading provider of corporate sustainability assessments, awarded us the bronze medal in its overall assessment in 2021. There is room for us to improve in terms of the environment and sustainable procurement, in particular. We want to work on these aspects – but we’ve also made headway in other areas already. We plan to undergo a fresh assessment in 2023 and are already excited to see the results. https://ecovadis.com
