Cleantech is gaining ground in Switzerland. Clear evidence of this rise to the fore is the publication of the Swiss Cleantech Report (first edition: 2011 – second edition: 2016), which takes an in-depth look at the Swiss cleantech industry from a number of angles and documents the huge growth potential of technologies designed to use natural resources efficiently and sustainably. The Swiss Cleantech Report is a current survey of the Swiss cleantech sector. It illustrates Switzerland's excellent framework for environmentally friendly technologies in terms of research and development, economic implementation and attractive funding options. As a location for industry and science, Switzerland plays a leading role in this field. The Swiss Cleantech Report is published by a number of key research institutes and establishments in the economic and public sector.
