About Swiss Green Economy Symposium

Since 2013, the Swiss Green Economy Symposium has shown by means of practical examples how business, politics, research and civil society can together contribute to more prosperity, protection of the environment and a more peaceful community life. Mutual exchange drives reciprocal learning. New innovative possibilities for solutions can be identified and recipes for success shared. The symposium inspires its participants, top executives and opinion leaders to concrete actions. With over 1000 participants, it is the biggest event for Business & Sustainability in Switzerland.
