In the article «Sharing instead of owning?», Thomas Berner, editor-in-chief of the trade magazine «Organisator», presents the principle of the sharing economy. In this article, Andreas Renggli explains how Polarstern communications agency has been offering shared services for some time already: «Sharing is a major topic for us as a communications agency focusing on sustainability. We share a pool of staff with our customers, are a member of the Mobility Carsharing service, and use many shared services we initiated ourselves».

These include Solothurn’s first coworking space, established by Polarstern in 2015, and shared services for customers including webhosting and tools for email marketing, media monitoring, social media and communications controlling.

Also interviewed for this article were Bettina Giménez (head of public service/sustainability at ZKB), Andreas Züllig (host at the Hotel Schweizerhof Lenzerheide and president of Hotelleriesuisse) and Andreas Schneider (owner of F + W Communications).
