SSF Newsletter December 2020: Building blocks
Dear all

As a challenging year comes to an end, we look back on numerous concrete actions in and further attention on sustainable finance around the globe.

The Federal Council’s publication of a first report in June and its adoption of concrete measures to make the Swiss financial centre sustainable last week showcases that in Switzerland too, the government increasingly puts sustainable finance centre stage. On the European level, the implementation of the sustainable finance action plan is in full course, while in the context of the “International Platform on Sustainable Finance” global alignment on definitions is also being sought.

In this context, we at Swiss Sustainable Finance (SSF) are very proud to have launched our new and timely compendium on “Financing the Low-Carbon Economy”, which highlights the breadth of finance instruments available to support a low-carbon economy and future.

SSF is convinced that 2020 has provided us with important building blocks for a sustainable world. We look forward to bringing sustainable finance to a next level in 2021.

Kind regards and stay healthy,
Sabine Döbeli
CEO, Swiss Sustainable Finance (SSF)
