Association to foster the Swiss green digital finance ecosystem

Supporting the development of Switzerland into a global leader in green fintech innovation.

Our Vision: By 2030, the Swiss green digital finance ecosystem will have become a global leader in enabling positive environmental and economic impact.

Our Initiatives

The Green Fintech Network was initiated by the Swiss State Secretariat for International Finance (SIF) as a working group in 2020. In 2021, this working group drafted the Green Fintech Action Plan, with clear recommendations for government, regulators, and financial industry industry how to establish a thriving green fintech ecosystem. The Green Fintech Network adopted and started working on a number of these recommendations, turning them into its strategic agenda:  

  • By bringing fintechs, corporates and academia together
  • To ensure favourable framework conditions for green digital finance in Switzerland
  • To connect companies to relevant startups and technology
  • By publishing and maintaining a green fintech map
  • To provide an overview of the green fintech ecosystem
  • To ensure individual green fintech companies are being found
  • By engaging with companies and financial institutions
  • To increase transparency on sustainability matters
  • To raise awareness of, educate about, and build capacity to address sustainability risks
  • By creating a sustainability data database
  • To support access to global sustainability datasets
  • To grant visibility to data providers
  • By connecting VC investors and advisors to startups in green digital finance
  • To support fintechs in their development and fundraising efforts
  • To makeinvestment opportunities transparent to VCs
