Wood is suitable as a versatile and sustainable building material, particularly when it comes from our own local forest here at the military training area Sand in Schönbühl. Compared with imported construction materials, for example, the transportation routes are shorter and the added value remains in the region.

However, using local wood more often in construction projects is only one of many different strategies pursued by armasuisse Real Estate to build a little more sustainably every year and to manage the real estate portfolio in an environmentally compatible manner.

Sustainable real estate management means using our economic, social and natural resources in a responsible manner.


armasuisse Real Estate reports annually on the implemented measures and progress, in line with ecological, economic and socially responsible real estate management. With this in mind, I am happy to present you with the recently published 2020 Sustainability Report.

From the COVID-19-related infrastructures created on an ad hoc basis to the energy-efficient new air operations centre at the military airfield Payerne and the first Swiss sustainability standard for construction projects in the infrastructure area – there are once again many fascinating, specific details to discover in the digital 2020 Sustainability Report.

I wish you a pleasant and inspiring read.
