Goal 4

Internal operations

The EPFL Innovation Park Foundation operates in Switzerland. The pledges taken within the STI framework relate to the sustainability policy applying to all the EPFL Innovation Park Foundation operations carried out in Switzerland. The company is therefore accountable for their implementation within the limits of its scope of activity.
