As one of Switzerland’s largest media and technology companies, the TX Group reaches nearly 80 percent of the country’s population each day and employs more than 3,000 people. With its quality journalism and a variety of digital platforms, the TX Group seeks to support a free and democratic society in which people can form their own opinions and are able to make informed choices. TX Group provides a network of platforms and ventures that offers users information, guidance, entertainment and help in relation to their daily lives. This is the foundation upon which the TX Group plans to further develop its portfolio and create value for the long term.
Social responsibility towards various stakeholders is extremely important to TX Group. For many years now, we have been extensively discussing and addressing the various aspects of sustainability. One example of what we have accomplished here is the quality monitoring process that we introduced in 2017, which serves as the basis for high-quality and independent journalism throughout TX Group. In 2021 - following an open letter from 78 women journalists - a focus was placed on diversity, inclusion and equal opportunities and, among other things, a consistent analysis of gender balance in the workforce and also in media coverage was carried out.
Sustainability was made a strategic Group Management topic at the beginning of 2022. As a result, the TX Group’s Chief Communications & Sustainability Officer will now work closely with the Group companies to develop and implement a sustainability strategy that includes specific goals and targets. Indeed, qualitative sustainability goals for the current financial year are now being defined and introduced for the highest management level at TX Group and its companies.
Our constant dialogue with various stakeholder groups, as well as a benchmark analysis, have enabled us to obtain initial insight into sustainability issues that are relevant for TX Group. This section provides an introduction to the topics of “Journalistic responsibility”, “Diversity, inclusion and equality of opportunity” and “Climate protection”. In future, the TX Group will publish a comprehensive sustainability report in accordance with an internationally recognised standard. This report will be reviewed and approved by the Board of Directors in advance.
