Switzerland occupies a central, strategic position at the geographic, technologic and economic heart of Europe. It has particularly good connections to the main international and European centres. CleantechAlps is their region’s driving force for the development of the cleantech sector, promoting interaction between businessess and players in the field. CleantechAlps specialises small-scale hydro, water & waste treatment, smart grids & eEnergy, industrial ecology, i.e. using waste as raw material, eco-mobility and more.
Switzerland is a leader in cleantech. While many regional and national players are still trying to position themselves in the cleantech field, Switzerland is not only home to the sector’s flagship companies, but has fully assimilated the philosophy of sustainable use of resources, making it an integral part of daily life for everyone.
