At Roche we reduced our greenhouse gas emissions by 50% absolute from 2009 – 2019 (own operations and purchased energies). We have set goals to further reduce emissions by another 75% from 2019 – 2029, to use 100% sustainable electricity by 2025 and to achieve real zero in 2050.
We recently extended our site in Kaiseraugst (Switzerland) with numerous new buildings, including our global IT centre, learning centre, quality labs etc.
This site is fully driven with sustainable electricity.
The buildings are highly energy-efficient and we built a woodchip heating plant, geothermal cooling, and several solar power installations, including one of the biggest facade solar plants in Switzerland.
