Its position at the interface between the financial markets and the economy enables SIX to play an active role in shaping the transition to sustainable development. As a service provider of ATM solutions for the Swiss financial center and a long-standing partner of the banking community, SIX is committed to providing environmentally responsible products and services and to making the cash ecosystem as a whole sustainable.

As a product and service provider, we are committed to our customers and the environment. In the cash ecosystem, we are focused on a collaborative and innovative approach with Diebold Nixdorf to deliver our ATM services in a sustainable way.

Diebold Nixdorf and SIX are working together to improve the power efficiency of the ATM fleet in Switzerland. The two companies have launched a pilot project to significantly reduce electricity consumption by the summer of 2023.

By implementing power management software developed by Diebold Nixdorf, ATMs can be put on standby during off-peak hours, such as when bank branches, shopping malls or retail stores are closed. This substantially lowers energy consumption.

Around 5,400 ATMs in Switzerland process their transactions via the SIX network. If about a quarter of the systems were shut down at night, their power consumption could be reduced by 30%. This corresponds to around 400MWh. The energy saved could power 100 four-person, single-family homes for a year.

Diebold Nixdorf creates solutions and processes that can be implemented and measured. As an end-to-end solution provider, we have sustainability firmly in our sights for the Swiss ATM community, as well as in our MVS and reporting services. With SIX as a service partner and customer, we are pleased to have a strong collaboration on this relevant, forward-looking issue.

Reducing the power consumption of ATMs in a sustainable way is an active contribution to environmental protection and a good starting point for further sustainability initiatives around the cash ecosystem.
