Focus on sustainability in Chile
The small country of Chile is a mining player of international importance. In 2018, over 200,000 workers employed in the sector generated sales of over CHF 30 billion. In addition to copper, where Chile is the clear leader with almost 30% of global production, it also mines lithium, molybdenum, gold, silver, lead, zinc and iron. In order to remain competitive, the companies are focusing on productivity gains, but above all on sustainability.
Excellent business opportunities for Swiss companies
Innovations in the cleantech industry in areas such as energy, water, waste, mobility and automation not only reduce environmental impact, but also production costs for mine operators, where the demand for supplies is enormous. This offers Swiss companies from the cleantech sector excellent business opportunities.
