About us The Sustainable Development Goals at Valeriana
These goals also set the direction for our work at Valeriana. Specifically, these four in particular:
At Valeriana, we want to ensure inclusive, equal and quality education for our employees and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. We want to achieve this through our offer of free German courses, professional development and on-the-job training.
SDG 5: Gender Equality

SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth
We promote permanent, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment as well as decent work. For we know that when our employees are doing well, we are doing well.
SDG 10: Reduced Inequality
With Valeriana, we want to bring society closer together, promote cooperation on equal terms and thereby reduce inequality between countries and people. We support our employees in setting roots in Switzerland thus promote their integration into society.
