Subsidies from the public sector (Federation, Cantons, communities, other) for accessory activities.
Return on sales (%)
The percentage of return on sales for the products services for own property and forest service activities and care cannot be calculated from the current database. The reason for this is that certain operational services are not offset by corresponding revenues. This includes for example the maintenance of greeneries for the community, in which the forest enterprise is not reimbursed by the community, thus falsifying the result.
