Civil Federal Administration

Das Bild zeigt den Zoll Koblenz bei Nacht.

The Civil Federal Administration, with its 23,000 full-time employees, assists the Federal Council and parliament in its work. It maintains relations between states, creates good general conditions for society and the economy, provides national infrastructure, ensures the security of the state and citizens and, as an independent judiciary, guarantees the enforcement and implementation of Swiss law.

Energy strategy

The Federal Office for Buildings and Logistics FOBL obtains 100% of the power it needs for the Civil Federal Administration’s buildings from renewable sources. In converted buildings, energy efficiency is consistently improved and new buildings are constructed according to the Minergie-P-ECO standard. Work-related travel is reduced by promoting work-at-home and the modal split is improved by means of contributions to public transport season tickets. The efficiency of data centres and other large-scale consumers is continually being increased.
