The UNEP Inquiry into the Design of a Sustainable Financial System identifies financing as one of the greatest challenges in advancing sustainable development. Switzerland is strongly committed to environmental issues. In combination with its advanced financial sector, Switzerland is in a unique position to present an opportunity for the transition to a green and inclusive economy. The Swiss team for the UNEP Inquiry gathers representatives of the financial sector, NGOs and academia along with government representatives to reflect on the Inquiry’s questions regarding a financial system aligned to sustainable development. The recommendations and ideas presented within this report is the outcome of the Swiss Team’s thought process, and it has to be acknowledged that more work is needed to validate some of them and formulate plans for action.
