Bern/Zurich/Sion - In the fourth edition of the Swiss Cleantech Report, the organizations responsible for issuing the report highlight Switzerland’s culture of technological expertise to manage the transition to sustainable business operations. The report is intended to serve as a reference for the Swiss cleantech sector, and will also be presented abroad.

The recently published fourth edition of the Swiss Cleantech Report presents more than 100 technologies, products and services developed by Swiss SMEs, research institutes and start-ups. The main focus of this current edition of the report is on sustainable development in line with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. According to a press release, the report aims to highlight the creativity and efforts of Swiss industry against the backdrop of the challenges linked to climate change and the SDGs.

“Switzerland enjoys a culture of excellence in technology”, as André Hoffmann, Vice-Chairman of the Roche Group and co-founder of the sustainability platform InTent, comments in the editorial of the 120-page brochure, which has been published in English. “We now have no choice but to act to change our model, switching from an extractive polluting economy to a regenerative economy”, he concludes.

As the press release explains further, the brochure looks at both the economy and research initiatives in the country, in addition to the approach to dealing with intellectual property. In this context, the vital role played by pioneers such as de Rivaz, Jenni, Piccard, Domjan and Escher is also highlighted.

The Swiss Cleantech Report is published by the Swiss Federal Office for Energy (SFOE) and Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN), Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IPI), Switzerland Global Enterprise (S-GE) and CleantechAlps from Sion in the canton of Valais. According to these organizations, the report can be regarded as a “reference for the cleantech sector in Switzerland” and will be distributed through the official Swiss network abroad. Moreover, it will be available at the Swiss pavilions at the most important global trade fairs dedicated to issues such as the environment, energy and sustainability. ce/mm
