Our commitment and approach

We’re acting now for tomorrow

As one of the largest financial institutions in Switzerland, PostFinance takes its social, economic and environmental responsibility seriously by treating its customers, staff and society as a whole fairly.

Corporate responsibility is enshrined in our strategy. It’s an area that we consider in its entirety, which is to say we look at the environmental, economic and social aspects. We take our responsibility seriously, and view sustainability as an opportunity to be an even more innovative and diversified financial service provider.
Hansruedi Köng, Chief Executive Officer at PostFinance

We’re acting now for tomorrow

In order to truly lead by example, we are establishing ourselves as a responsible company in all areas. The field of sustainability presents many opportunities. PostFinance wants to tap into these on a systematic basis to launch new and innovative customer solutions.

We’re also adapting our activities to the SDGs of the UN, with a particular focus on “Goal 5: Gender Equality”, “Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure”, “Goal 12: Sustainable Consumption and Production” and “Goal 13: Climate Action”. 

Commitment to society

PostFinance has a long track record of social commitment. This means PostFinance not only provides its customers with reliable support, it is also a fair employer. Outside the financial sector, PostFinance is also committed to society as a whole. The company supports the young generation: athletes, school pupils and young entrepreneurs. Because if you want to have creative minds tomorrow, you must encourage young people today.
