There is overwhelming global agreement that man-made climate change must be addressed. To limit global warming to the recommended 1.5 degrees is a tall task. How we will achieve this is not yet defined. The possible recommended reduction paths for greenhouse gas emissions vary, but are all steep with large impacts on our economy. We expect to face massive structural changes (i.e. rethinking our entire energy system, mobility, industry and agriculture) needing the involvement of all sectors, with the duel role of the financial sector playing an important part in the transition: making sure appropriate funding gets to climate projects, but also reducing the footprint of their portfolios.

As a party to the Paris Agreement, Switzerland – alongside other countries – has made a clear commitment to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 and halve them by 2030.

 

In this section, we highlight important tools we expect will help us achieve our goals!
