Head of Sustainability | Logitech
Robert has held various roles within the Consumer Tech industry in a diverse career spanning more than 25 years, including leadership roles in Operations & Supply Chain, Customer Quality and Compliance Management. Recognizing early on the negative impact that “business as usual” was having, Robert shifted his focus to finding ways to contribute to a more accountable and sustainable approach in our industry.
Robert currently leads Logitech’s Corporate Sustainability function, with responsibility for driving Logitech’s “Pervasive Sustainability” commitment to deliver on the company’s ambition to help Sustainability become “..a mindful principal infused into everything we do at Logitech”. Over the past decade Robert has overseen this transformation by building and fostering a team with capability, drive and ambition and who are delivering on this broader vision.
Robert advocates for a science-based approach to transformation and sees Logitech committed to climate action efforts focused on 3R’s – Reduce, Renew and Restore. Reduce our carbon footprint by utilising Design for Sustainability (DfS) and Circular Economy solutions in support of the 1.5OC Paris Agreement; Renew our footprint by shifting to 100% renewable electricity throughout our supply chain; and what we are not able to reduce or renew Logitech will Restore through investments in nature based solutions while supporting climate-impacted biodiversity and communities.
Externally, this approach is resonating with industry and partners. The UN- sponsored World Benchmark Alliance has included Logitech in the SDG2000, a list of companies with the greatest potential to influence a more sustainable future. In 2019 and again in 2020, Logitech won the World Finance Magazine Sustainability Award for our sector. Logitech is listed as a Leader in technology by Sustainalytics and maintains inclusion on the FTSE4GOOD Index and Swiss SIX Sustainability Index as one of the “top 25 most sustainable Swiss companies.”
Robert acknowledges there is much more to be done but he continues to be motivated by “doing the right thing” and by seeing the positive impact, first hand, this is having on people, communities and the environment across the supply chain. To learn more check www.logitech.com/sustainability
