Cleantech industry in Chile

Responsible supply chains: the potential for Switzerland and Chile

Chile has gained worldwide attention with its energy transformation: The South American country is rich in raw materials for a sustainable future and relies on a green growth strategy. Chile requires assistance with its supply chains in the fields of water, recycling and inherited waste clean-up, as well as with financing, insurance and transport. You can find out in our webinar how Swiss cleantech companies can get involved and benefit here and how important traceability is in this regard.

The Chilean cleantech market is one of the most important worldwide. The South American country has the best conditions for extracting copper and lithium. Both are raw materials that will become important with the energy transition and the boom of electromobility, thereby endowing Chile with enormous future potential. Another opportunity is in the promising energy source of green hydrogen: This can be produced more economically in Chile than anywhere else in the world. 

Mobility, air, waste - solutions sought for Chile's cleantech supply chains.
The international interest in Chile regarding cleantech is correspondingly great. The South American country is trying to exploit this and is pursuing a green growth strategy by striving to configure the extraction of these valuable resources in a modern and sustainable way. For this, Chile needs cleantech solutions in its supply chains for mines and production plants, as well as for transport and services. As an innovative country with high environmental standards, Switzerland can assist Chile with its companies - on the one hand, as suppliers of mining companies, on the other, as buyer of Chilean raw materials. 

Webinar: How Swiss cleantech companies can be of benefit to Chile's energy transition 
Experts discuss what an important contribution Swiss players can make to the development of Chile in coming years in the areas of energy, mobility, air purification, water, sewage, recycling and inherited waste clean-up, as well as in financing, insurance and transport. Felipe Wilenmann, CEO Sicpa Chile, for example, talks about the importance of traceability and ex-minister and world bank advisor Marcelo Mena speaks about Chile's green growth strategy.
