Speeki helps Swiss businesses with their Sustainability Disclosure Obligations

Switzerland's central location in Europe, coupled with its global business reach, exceptional natural beauty and high quality of life encourages a business environment which prioritises sustainability.

A number of recent Federal laws and ordinances have been introduced to modernise Swiss Environmental and Social regulations - both relating to substantive protections as well as disclosure requirements. Although they are not all as stringent as the EU's Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive, many Swiss companies will need to be aiming at those higher standards to meet the needs of their European customers as well as their stakeholders and customers.

Speeki provides ESG & Sustainability software, consulting, sustainability due diligence and assurance solutions. We are committed in helping Swiss companies navigate the complex web of regualtions and continue to be World leaders in Sustainability and make ESG & Sustainability a competitive advantage for their businesses.

Sustainability obligations are developing quickly in Switzerland. Let us help.

"ESG" can have many meanings. At Speeki our software manages over 20 different topics out of the box. While not all of these may be 'material' and require some form of disclosure, they may still be 'important' to you or your stakeholders.

Whether you're grappling with carbon footprints, emissions calculations, ethical supply chain, whistleblowing, corporate governance, human rights, or being selected by your customers as a 'safe and sustainable' option, Speeki is your solution. Our approach to ESG & Sustainability can help you not only meet any regulatory requirements but build a better and more sustainable company for the next generation.

Tackling ESG & Sustainability will make you a better company. It will drive improvements with your suppliers, with your employees, your stakeholders, your regulators, and your customers. It will force you to look into the future, become more sustainable and help the planet endure.

With a focus on building and managing programmes across material (and important) topics across the ESG & Sustainability spectrum, you can identify new opportunities, engage your stakeholders, and become a stronger business.

ESG & Sustainability is not a cost to your business, it is a growth engine.

Due Diligence (Swiss Code of Obligations).

Speeki's technology platform supports the requirements to maintain management systems for conflict minerals as well as child-labour issues within the supply chain.

As a management system is far more than just a policy, Speeki can help you build and improve your programmes to ensure efficient and effective compliance with your local obligations.

Reporting of Climate Matters

The Code of Obligations currently requires certain Swiss companies to report on climate matters using the Recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

As the TCFD is managed by the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) which maintains its own climate reporting standard (IFRS S2), Swiss companies will need to be aware of the future direction of their reporting requirements.

Additionally, many Swiss businesses trade extensively in Europe, potentially requiring reporting for EU based entities against the EU's European Sustainability Reporting Standard (ESRS).

Speeki's sustainability reporting solution covers all of those potential requirements in an easy to use platform, with all the necessary material to guide companies through the complexity.

ESG solutions for Swiss Businesses

How Speeki can help your business in Switzerland.

Depending on what size and scale of company you are, you may have mandatory or optional ESG reporting requirements in Switzerland in the near future. Whether you fall under the Code of Obligations, have extensive operations in Europe or are being asked for ESG data points from your customers, Speeki's technology platform will simplify compliance.

Prepare for TCFD - and also be on the way towards reporting against IFRS S1 and S2

Speeki has a software platform already configured to help you build ESG & Sustainability across twenty different topics, many of which will be mandatory reporting under the new standards.

Speeki is not just a ESG & Sustainability reporting platform, but rather a comprehensive suite of non-financial programme management and reporting. We have embedded guidance, advice and instructions throughout the platform to increase your knowledge and reduce the need for consulting expertise.

Building your child-labour programmes and move beyond policies

Compliance with the Code of Obligations will need a comprehensive child labour programme - along with a wider human rights and modern-day slavery programme. This is more than just a policy and a statement on your website.

Speeki helps companies build programmes according to global best practices and standards.  Together with the Speeki platform, our team will design, draft, implement, monitor, and audit your programme.

Sustainability due diligence and supplier qualification

In order to meet the new legislation and best practices on supplier qualification, you will need a comprehensive due diligence system for identifying risks in your supply chain. This is not just for human rights issues, but environmental, information security, corruption, sanctions, and reputational risks. More than just a questionnaire to collect information, Speeki helps with developing a qualification system involving risk identification, assessments, contracting, due diligence and audit.

Developing a sustainability programme with Speeki allows you to cover all topics in a consistent manner.

By choosing Speeki, you're not just adopting a platform; you're partnering with a leader in ESG & Sustainability solutions. From building and maintaining ESG & Sustainability programmes to driving accountability and generating reports, Speeki supports your journey in ESG & Sustainability and other non-financial reporting aspects.

Managing the performance of your non-financial programmes will be your advantage.

Switzerland is making a strong push forward in ESG & Sustainability. This is not going away anytime soon and those companies that lean-in will be able to take advantage of new business opportunities.

Switzerland and Beyond - it's the same software.

Speeki continuously incorporates new global or local reporting standards from countries as they become published. We ensure that your business remains able to produce necessary disclosures not just in Switzerland but in any country you operate.

Manage your non-financial performance.

More than just climate change, Speeki helps you build programmes across twenty areas. Businesses can align their sustainability efforts with Speeki and other software products like climate accounting or energy management systems.

Speeki has embedded tools and guidance.
