Our commitment to corporate responsibility

SWISS is aware of its responsibility

As Switzerland's national airline, SWISS is fully aware of its economic, ecological and social responsibilities. We create lasting value for all our target groups.


SWISS creates social and economic values for all its target groups with its business model. The strategy of Corporate Responsibility (CR) at SWISS is based on four cornerstones:

  • Aim: CR initiatives reinforce the positive effects of our business activities.
  • Focus: As the national airline, SWISS focuses exclusively on people and activities with close ties to Switzerland, by providing transport services or sharing expertise.
  • Core areas: SWISS focuses on selected, long-term partnerships in the fields of corporate, social and ecological responsibility.
  • Foundation: Economic sustainability is the foundation of all CR activities. Values can be created for all target groups only if SWISS is able to remain profitable over the long-term.
SWISS Corporate Responsibility: 4 cornerstones
Activities focus on selected corporate (SOS Children's Villages, education, local involvement), social (promotion good health, families, social partnership) and environmental (technology, operation / infrastructure, economy) projects.


SWISS does not use CR parameters to determine the success of its commitment. The initiatives are part of the daily business process, which is why they are obtained and optimised in line with the company's strategy development.

Information about the consolidated CR activities of the Lufthansa Group is available on the Lufthansa Group website.


SWISS sets itself ambitious targets in its social, economic or ecological responsibility. The effects of various initiatives are documented in the following reports:
