As part of the Confederation’s Exemplary Energy and Climate initiative, 18 important Swiss providers of publicly relevant services are contributing to the Energy Strategy 2050 and the 2015 Paris Agreement. The focus is on energy efficiency, renewable energies and, as a new field of action, climate-friendly financial flows.
In the cross-sector field of action energy and climate, the participants are pursuing individual targets up to 2026 and 2030 for energy efficiency, ecological electricity production, renewable heating and cooling and renewable fuels. The goal is for the share of electricity from renewable sources to be 100 percent for all participants by 2026.
In the field of action climate-friendly financial flows, the participants are setting themselves targets to make investments compatible with the Paris Agreement. Among other things, this includes companies being called on to operate in a more climate-friendly way by the participating pension funds and insurance companies that invest in them. They are also continuously reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of the directly held real estate in their portfolio.
The participants report transparently on their target achievement and share their experiences so that other companies and organisations can use this information as a guide. It’s easier together!
