In line with SAK's sustainability strategy, which aims to promote and utilize renewable energy sources, increase energy efficiency and develop innovative energy solutions, this partnership comes at an opportune time. Norm Technologies, known for its vision of decarbonizing the building stock, brings its expertise and innovative digital solutions to the partnership.

Thanks to the partnership with NORM, SAK can now offer its customers a holistic energy analysis of their properties. As a first step, the partnership enables property owners to carry out an initial analysis of their property free of charge and directly here on the SAK website free of charge.

For a more detailed analysis, a second step offers the option of having an individual renovation roadmap created by an energy expert. The digital solution provided by NORM is user-friendly and accessible. NORM's energy experts analyze each property individually to put together a tailor-made package of renovation measures that includes cost estimates and information on available subsidies. This initiative supports property owners in making their buildings sustainable and reducing CO₂ emissions in a targeted manner.

"This partnership with NORM is in line with our commitment to promote innovative solutions that help our customers to increase their energy efficiency and make an active contribution to environmental protection," said Philipp Inderbitzin, Head of Energy Solutions at SAK. "Together, we are taking an important step towards a sustainable future for Switzerland."

Gian Reto à Porta, founder of NORM, added: "Working with an established partner like SAK allows us to take a step closer to our vision of decarbonizing the real estate industry."
