Financial contributions and donations made by Nagra in 2019

Every year, Nagra publishes information on its financial contributions and donations to third parties.

As a company under private law, Nagra is not obliged to disclose such information. However, because of the important societal nature of its task and the need for transparent information in its area of work, Nagra publishes its annual contributions to the Sectoral Plan process, its main membership contributions to organisations and other annually recurring expenditure.

Based on an agreement with the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE), Nagra finances relevant components of the Sectoral Plan process. In 2019, Nagra's total contribution amounted to CHF 4,795,667. This amount contains CHF 1,502,592 for manpower costs of the SFOE, CHF 99,172 for cantonal experts on safety, CHF 1,000,000 for financial support of the siting Cantons and communities, CHF 2,024,732 for the bodies involved in regional participation as well as advisory services, information events and expenses of landowners 169,171 CHF.
