Southern Europe is increasingly embracing cleantech and renewable energies. France, Italy and Spain are driving forward a green and ecological transition. In order to sustainably protect the environment, they are striving to introduce smart cities and a circular economy. All three countries are investing heavily in cleantech, which offers exciting opportunities for Swiss companies.
Ecological transition in France, Italy and Spain
The authorities in France are committed to sustainable environmental and cleantech strategies and are putting increasing pressure on companies to consider the entire life cycle of their products and services. In Italy, the recently created Ministry for Ecological Transition is leading to increased investment in the cleantech sector. In addition, the economic stimulus program promotes environmentally friendly projects. In Spain, both the public and private sectors are pushing for the rapid and comprehensive development of the circular economy; the integrated national energy and climate plan provides, among other things, for a massive expansion of renewable energies and electric mobility, as well as improved water management.
