ICT strategy redefined


The Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) has adopted a new ICT strategy for the years 2020 – 2023.
The goal: to further advance the digital transformation of the office.

The Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) is tasked with ensuring the sustainable use of natural resources such as soil, water, air, peace and forests. It is responsible for protecting against natural hazards, protecting the environment and people's health from excessive pressure, ensuring the preservation of biodiversity and landscape quality and is responsible for international environmental policy. As part of the development of the new ICT strategy, the FOEN relied on the support of e3 AG.


  • Tight schedule
  • Inclusion of all specialist areas
  • Complex requirements from the department and federal government


  • Document analysis
  • Workshops
  • Strategy revision


  • Synopsis from document study
  • Revised ICT strategy
  • Information video for internal communication

In mid-2020, the federal government's ICT strategy 2020-2023 focused on the changes required to align federal IT with future business needs and to optimally support the administrative business in digital transformation. The Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) in the Federal Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications (UVEK) took this as an opportunity to completely revise the existing ICT strategy, align it with these objectives and at the same time meet its own needs for modern ICT services .

With this basic orientation, e3 AG was commissioned to develop a suitable approach and implement it for the systematic revision of the FOEN's ICT strategy. The chosen approach comprised two essential stages, which built on each other:

Level 1: Strategic guidelines

Document study of the relevant strategic guidelines as well as additional documents provided in order to obtain a clear and detailed overview of the individual objectives and specifications as framework conditions and to determine their influence on the FOEN's previous ICT strategy.

Stage 2: Revise the strategy

With the involvement of specialist representatives and in collaboration with IT, several workshops were held and the essential content for the FOEN's ICT strategy was developed. This includes defining the strategic initiatives and the goals to be achieved as well as defining measures to achieve them as part of the implementation of the strategy. A master plan was also developed to specifically implement the defined measures.

As a result, a revised ICT strategy was handed over to the FOEN, taking into account all relevant stakeholders and within the time constraints, which was approved and put into effect by the management before the end of 2020. As an additional service to improve communication within the FOEN, the e3 AG team also developed an information video with the most important content about the new ICT strategy, which is available to employees on the intranet.
