Corporate Social Responsibility
Ongoing Commitment to Sustainability
Building a safe future means living sustainability in every aspect of our lives. Today and tomorrow. We are committed to sustainability not only as individuals but also as employers.
CERTIFIED ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Continous improvement for a sustainable future
Berlinger has highly rated sustainability goals and has, therefore, developed an environmental management system (EMS). In April 2013 our EMS obtained ISO 14001 certification and could therefore be integrated into our existing QM system.Get in touch with us
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY WORKPLACE
Sustainable ways of travelling
- Reduced travel
Travel is reduced as much as possible. Our modern IT infrastructure enables our employees to hold virtual meetings. Furthermore, Berlinger focuses on participating in online conferences instead of exhibitions.
- Working from home
A flexible worktime module gives our employees the opportunity to work from home. Time is saved and efficiency is gained.
- Bike to work
Berlinger takes part in the yearly Swiss health promotion "Bike to work" where employees pedal to work and back over the course of two months. Great team spirit is gained and CO2 saved.
- E-mobility support
Our parking lot is equipped with an electrical outlet for employees driving an electric car.

SUSTAINABLE SUPPLY CHAIN
Improvement of logistic processes
With more than 170 customers worldwide, we are part of a global supply chain that is becoming increasingly complex. It is, therefore, our objective to continue optimizing the logistical processes. As a result, we successfully consolidate our shipments and recycle packaging material in the production.Get in touch with us
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY BUILDING
The clever ice-heating system in our building doesn't use gas for the heating process, but uses the extracted energy to heat up the interior in winter and cool it down in summer. In 2019, we achieved seven times fewer CO2 emissions.
- No pesticide in use
Berlinger does not use any pesticides to maintain the greenfields on the company premises.
Sustainable product design
Reuse, reduce, recycle
A clever product design is the key to produce sustainable solutions for our customers. We focused on three key initiatives in our monitoring solutions to create more sustainable products: 1. Multiple use, 2. Extra light devices, 3. Recycle.
