Switzerland's Green Fintech Network

Switzerland's Green Fintech Network

May 2022

Switzerland sees sustainable finance as a great opportunity for the Swiss financial centre. The combination of sustainable financial services and digital technology (green fintech) is particularly promising. For this reason, the State Secretariat for International Finance (SIF), together with industry representatives, launched the Green Fintech Network.

The aim of the Network is to ensure close cooperation between SIF and key specialists from the Swiss green fintech ecosystem.

Accordingly, the main industry players are represented in the Network:

  • Green fintech companies
  • Green fintech associations
  • Risk capital firms
  • Universities/universities of applied sciences
  • Consultancy firms and law firms

The Green Fintech Network's mandate is to identify areas in which the conditions for green fintech in Switzerland could be improved. The Network will then submit concrete proposals to both the government and the private sector, as well as assisting in the implementation of measures.
