Glencore was established in Switzerland more than 40 years ago, and has remained in the country ever since. Our Group headquarters are in the commune of Baar, located in the canton of Zug.
We employ more than 770 people in Baar, Switzerland. With the exception of oil and agriculture, all of our business segments and corporate functions are based in Baar.
We play an active role in local communities in Switzerland, supporting more than 100 projects and organisations, including charities.
We engage openly and regularly with both Swiss and international NGOs, responding to concerns raised.
