Swiss Green Fintech Action Plan

A group of experts from the green digital finance area has issued an action plan in order to optimize the development of this technology application in Switzerland.

Swiss Green Fintech Action Plan

On 8 April 2021 the Green Fintech Network, an informal group of experts from the green digital finance ecosystem, issued a Green Fintech Action Plan. The action plan focuses on promoting the combination of digital technology and sustainable finance, considering that Switzerland has set the goal to become a global leader in digital and sustainable financial services and is already very well positioned in this field.

The Green Fintech Action Plan contains 16 proposals that will benefit from the current Swiss financial regulatory framework by leveraging the new provisions in the Swiss DLT bill, as well as the Limited Qualified Investor Fund (L-QIF). The Action Plan also follows the objective of amending regulations of pension funds, by increasing pension funds flexibility to invest in so called green fintechs due to the consideration of long-term returns and environmental risks.
