Digital SME Sustainability Check-up

Finding and closing sustainability gaps.
Securing the future of SMEs.
Survey of 1,000 individuals on the sustainability dimensions of ecology, economy and social issues. The free social barometer shows which sustainability issues are highly valued by Swiss society.
Much more than just an analysis

We continuously collect data to reveal the gap between your company and societal demands.
Developed in cooperation with scientific partners: universities (e.g. Crowther Lab/ETH) and universities of applied sciences (e.g. HWZ).
Thanks to ongoing surveys and analyses, we can put the results from the check-up in the context of current societal perceptions.
SMEs thus receive recommendations with a clear focus on the most important fields of action.
The checkup includes the four dimensions of sustainability - organization, social, ecology and economy.
- Surveys among academics and students
- Survey by Intervista among the Swiss population
- Data from the completed checkups of companies
