Designed to coexist in harmony with nature, Erdgas Ostschweiz AG’s company premises demonstrates its commitment to ensuring a better quality of life and greater biodiversity

Erdgas Ostschweiz AG was certified for the near-natural landscaping of 20,000 m2 of green space on its premises totalling 50,000 m2 for the first time in 1998. It was re-certified with the quality label issued by the Swiss Nature and Economy Foundation again in 2003, 2009, 2014 and 2019.

Erdgas Ostschweiz AG consistently complies with the requirements of this foundation, thus helping to improve quality of life for its employees and maintain diversity of species in industrial and commercial areas.

The Swiss Nature and Economy Foundation awards its quality label to companies that landscape their premises in a way which is close to nature. The aim of the foundation is to promote a variety of natural life by encouraging companies to create a near-natural environment on their premises. The criteria for successful certification were drawn up by the foundation’s funding body in close consultation with landscape architects and nature conservation groups. They are met in such a way that they benefit nature conservation and promote beauty and user friendliness.
