Switzerland's energy supply is heavily dependent on foreign countries during the winter months. In addition, the prices for electricity have risen very sharply. To ensure that we at Ypsomed get through the winter without energy shortages, we have set up an Energy Task Force. Our goal is to be able to produce continuously and to identify and implement sustainable savings potential.

For some time now, Europe has been experiencing a shortage of qualified and well-trained workers. Specialists are in particular demand for MINT occupational fields (mathematics, information technology, natural sciences and technology). To prevent this problem, we are increasingly training our specialists ourselves. Every year, around 20 apprentices complete their vocational training at Ypsomed and help to make self-treatment a matter of course. In addition, we fulfil our social responsibility as a company by providing training and offering attractive jobs.

In August 2022, Ypsomed reached an important milestone in the production of its world's first CO2-neutral autoinjector, YpsoMate Zero: production is now certified according to the ISCC+ standard. This is an international standard used by many plastics companies for their sustainable plastics.

Our new working model

YpsoStory

The pandemic has had a lasting impact on our idea of work. The sudden obligation to work from home has led to challenges, but also to new opportunities. Flexible working, independent of time and place, has become an integral part of our culture at Ypsomed within a very short time. We want to continue to attract the best talent in the industry and therefore offer a working environment tailored to the individual situations of employees in all stages of their lives.

Whether it is folding envelopes, restocking supplies or taking pens apart – Max has been working at Ypsomed for more than 30 years with great pleasure and dedication. He has a cognitive disability – but that does not stop him from spreading a lot of happiness. We take a look at his activities and our cooperation with the Training and Work Centre for the Disabled (SAZ) in Burgdorf.
