Committed to tomorrow
As a responsible company, we have been integrating the principles of sustainable development into our service offering for many years. We also support a number of projects and initiatives in this field. In addition, we are involved in the development and economic fabric of our region, notably by giving preference to local suppliers. Finally, as a training company, we supervise several apprentices in different fields every year.
Our support initiatives
Each year, in the run-up to the festive season, SEIC invites its customers to take
an active part in its support campaign by submitting their choice of association
, which will benefit from its financial assistance to carry out its activities in the region.
The SPA la Côte shelter is a place for animals to go after separation and before adoption. The shelter is of a human scale and can take in dogs, cats and NACs, with one constant concern: their well-being. SEIC's contribution has enabled it to renovate several structures to improve the reception of animals.
Thanks to its network of centers in French-speaking Switzerland, SOS futurs mamans provides families and parents in difficulty with equipment, clothing and toys, as well as diapers and baby formula. SEIC's contribution has enabled the Nyon office to strengthen its action in the region.
In light of the economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, SEIC has decided to donate the amount it traditionally donates at the end of the year to a local charity to the online platform "Soutien aux commerçants de la Côte". By making this commitment to its community, SEIC is contributing to the long-term survival of small businesses in its service area. They will all benefit from our support.
Founded in 2006, Les Bistrots du Cœur is an association that provides practical help to sick or isolated people in the commune of Gland, particularly during the festive season. On this occasion, it organizes a Christmas meal and, through its Les Cornets du Cœur initiative, distributes food to some 150 beneficiaries. These actions have been strengthened and extended thanks to the help of SEIC.
For 30 years, the Lire et Ecrire association has been raising public awareness of the problem of illiteracy in Switzerland, and responding in practical ways by helping people suffering from illiteracy to develop basic reading, writing, arithmetic and IT skills. In the Nyon district, the association offers seven courses, a drop-in center, a computer workshop and two prevention projects. Thanks to SEIC's donation, seven adults in the region will be able to take part in an annual course in 2019, thus taking a further step towards vocational training and employment.
Based in Gland, the OVA association has been committed since 2004 to improving autism care and training professionals and parents in methods that enhance the learning process and independence of children affected by this disability. With its contribution, SEIC supports the overall care of around twenty children suffering from autistic disorders, both at the OVA center and at home, through an educational and behavioral program to help them return to mainstream schools.
In 2017, SEIC is supporting beekeeping societies in La Côte, Nyon and Bière and surrounding areas. This welcome assistance enables local beekeepers to guarantee the continuity of bee colonies and thus maintain the natural reproductive cycle of plants in the region.
300 queens for 300 colonies
As part of its support project, SEIC's contribution to local beekeepers will facilitate the introduction into their colonies of 300 selected Swiss queens from the best breeding farms in Vaud. This will not only help to sustain around 300 colonies, but also increase the bee population by 12.5 million over the next three years.
A complementary project
SEIC's gesture is all the more appreciated by beekeepers as it complements the "Packages of bees" initiative recently launched by the Agriculture and Viticulture Department (SAVI). SEIC will enable them to buy queens and pay SAVI's instructors-breeders, who will give them access to courses and equipment to help them create new colonies. These two complementary forms of support come at just the right time to guarantee the continuity of the apiaries, while strengthening the links within the corporation. What better way to ensure the long-term future of bees!
For 50 years, La Garenne's mission has been to care for wild animals and safeguard endangered species. This wildlife park also carries out important educational work on the conservation of our environment. In 2016, SEIC's contribution enabled it to produce a film that completed a series of videos designed to raise awareness of biodiversity preservation among the general public and schools.
Thanks to the support of SEIC, Rêves Suisse enabled six children to visit the Disney Kingdom in Paris during the summer of 2015. This association offers children and teenagers suffering from serious pathologies the opportunity to find, by realizing their dream, the strength to fight against illness.
As part of its action, Cartons du Coeur appeals to everyone's generosity to collect foodstuffs, hygiene, household and basic necessities in order to distribute them at home in the form of boxes to those who need them most. Thanks to SEIC's support in 2014, the association was able to meet three-quarters of its annual needs in fresh produce purchases.
Green products and services
Whether producing energy from natural resources or implementing energy efficiency solutions, we conduct all our activities with sustainability in mind.
The production and distribution of energy is the subject of an environmentally-friendly policy on the part of the company. Over 60% of the electricity supplied by SEIC is of renewable origin.
We also offer a full range of green energies, backed up by a production fleet comprising two hydroelectric power plants and a dozen large-scale photovoltaic installations, all located within our service area.
In the same spirit, we offer our customers numerous solutions to improve the energy efficiency of their buildings and equipment, and install for them clean energy production systems such as heat pumps and solar panels, or low-energy consumption systems such as LED lighting. Our automation solutions also save energy.
Initiatives and projects
Committed on a daily basis to defending solutions that care for the future of our planet, we support and develop initiatives that give pride of place to renewable energies and energy efficiency.
For several years now, we have been investing in the creation, maintenance and development of district heating networks, an environmentally-friendly way of producing heat by making the most of the region's natural resources. In this context, we took an active part in a medium-depth geothermal project on the Côte - EnergeÔ Vinzel (redirect to the relevant page) - which determined in May 2023 that the resource was present with an exceptional gushing flow, but insufficient temperature for direct use of the heat.
