What properties must flooring have in order to be used in laboratories, radiology rooms or in the electronic industry? It must be both electroconductive and insulating so as to protect those put at risk through contact with live parts. Swiss-based Forbo-Giubiasco SA specializes in precisely this type of flooring. To make production as energy-efficient as possible, the company enlisted the support of the EnAW.

EnAW 2015 Annual Report: by business. For business. Since 2001.
Target agreements and their implementation with the energy management system of the Energy Agency of the Swiss Private Sector (EnAW) are a successful and politically recognized option throughout Switzerland. We now have it in writing. Climate protection is making headway in Switzerland thanks to the commitment of the business sector.
EnAW 2014 Annual Report: by business. For business. Since 2001.
Every year we look back proudly at what the business sector has accomplished. Compared with 1990, EnAW participants are emitting 25 per cent less CO₂– despite economic growth. In climate policy terms, this is important for Switzerland as the companies working with the EnAW account for almost half the emissions produced by the business sector. Product and energy-neutral advice, which we will also be continuing in the post-Kyoto period, is proving its worth.
The CO₂ levy is imposed on all fossil thermal fuels (e.g., heating oil, natural gas). Since 2014 it is CHF 60 per tonne CO₂ and will be increased to CHF 84 per tonne CO₂ as of 1 January 2016. The CO₂ levy is indicated on invoices for purchases of thermal fuels.
Our participants significantly outperformed the target with a total reduction of 25 per cent
he first CO₂ law remained in force until the end of 2012 and committed the business sector to a 15 per cent CO₂ reduction compared to 1990. Our participants significantly outperformed the target with a total reduction of 25 per cent. Last year's focus of attention was the transition to the 2013-2020 period covered by the new CO₂ law.
Successful conclusion of the Kyoto period: EnAW participants cut CO₂ emissions by 25 per cent
The first CO₂ law remained in force until the end of 2012 and committed the business sector to a roughly 15-per cent CO₂ reduction in respect of fuels by comparison with 1990. EnAW participants have clearly outperformed this target. As at end-2012, they recorded a cumulative reduction of roughly 25 per cent.
