On 8 April 2021, the new network of start-ups and experts in green fintech presented an action plan for a green and innovative Swiss financial centre. This is in line with the Federal Council's objective of making Switzerland a global leader in digital and sustainable financial services.
The Green Fintech Network was set up in November 2020 with the assistance of the State Secretariat for International Finance SIF. The newly presented action plan contains 16 concrete proposals for a future-proof combination of digital technology and a sustainable financial sector. They range from setting up a platform for sustainability data to the launch of an innovation challenge for green fintech start-ups, to the promotion of open finance and the expansion of funding options for green fintechs.
The Network sees its proposals as concrete incentives for authorities, associations, and the scientific and business communities to drive forward promising innovative solutions. A broad discussion of these proposals is planned at a round table moderated by Federal Councillor Ueli Maurer on 19 May 2021.
