Bucher signs agreement with the Swiss Energy Agency of Economy (EnAW)

On October 6, 2017, Switzerland committed to reducing its emissions by 2030 as part of the Paris Climate Agreement. The overarching goal of this agreement is to limit the average global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels, with a target of striving for a maximum temperature increase of 1.5 degrees Celsius. This is aligned with the effort to direct both state and private financial flows towards a low-carbon development and enhance adaptability to a changing climate.

The obligations for emission reduction under the Paris Agreement are implemented in Switzerland’s national climate legislation. The set objectives of Switzerland are in alignment with the provisions of the Paris Agreement and the recommendations of the scientific community. In 2017, Switzerland submitted its nationally determined voluntary contribution, which has been subsequently increased.

Through innovative approaches, Bucher is able to effectively minimize resource wastage, avoids waste and pollution, optimizes operational processes, reduces energy consumption, and lowers emissions. As a locally rooted company, it reinvests in products and locations, nurtures partnerships with local suppliers, and fosters a work environment that reflects trust, respect, and equal opportunities. Sustainability is the key to a livable future.

In alignment with this commitment, Bucher Leichtbau has signed an agreement with the Swiss Energy Agency of Economy (EnAW). This commitment binds the company to reduce CO2-emissions and make an annual contribution to optimize energy efficiency. The voluntary participation in the Energy Agency for the Economy program reaffirms Bucher Group’s clear dedication to active climate protection. This goal agreement is recognized at both the federal and regional levels, as well as among business partners.

Beat Burlet (CEO) states: “The journey towards a sustainable future in aviation is marked by the commitment of companies to significant goals. At Bucher, we believe that embracing change, even through small steps, is pivotal. As we sign agreements and drive innovation, we’re not just reducing emissions – we’re propelling the industry towards a cleaner, greener horizon.”

In the aviation industry, significant goals are also being set. By 2035, the aim is to achieve nearly emission-free transportation. This represents a major focus within the aviation sector. Big changes start with small steps.”
