Swiss Triple Impact

Tackle today's societal challenges. Seize new business opportunities. Boost innovation.

The program brings together a community of impact-driven businesses, creating an ecosystem of organizations committed to a sustainable future. It helps Swiss companies to measure their contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and thus to identify the most critical areas for improvement, while at the same time opening up new business opportunities and boosting innovation. The STI program creates a dynamic allowing commitment across the country, with an overall target to engage more than 3,000 companies in a wide range of sizes and sectors.
