Liip AG – sustainability prize
Liip AG is one of the leading Swiss companies in the realisation of individual web applications and has sites in Zurich, Fribourg, Lausanne and Bern. Since 2007 the family-friendly company has compensated for corporate emissions with myclimate. In keeping with the motto «do your best and compensate for the rest», Liip ensures that it reduces its own carbon footprint through active measures.
Four sites mean four offices and journeys between the different locations. Liip uses only green electricity and all offices can be easily reached with public transport, which means that company cars and company parking spaces are not necessary. In addition, all employees receive passes for half-fare travel as a minimum, while many actually get free travel. Thanks to cycling promotions, staff can purchase a bike at a reduced price. Trains are also preferred to planes for journeys within Europe – even when it means extra expense and longer travel times.
In 2013 Liip was awarded the Zürcher Kantonalbank sustainability prize for its employee-friendly, family-friendly and, last but not least, climate-friendly commitments.
