About the cleantech concept

This multifaceted term covers a wide range of sectors throughout the value chain.


Cleantech not only sounds good, it also does good. Cleantech includes technology, processes, goods and services that are specifically designed to reduce the negative impact on the environment and enable the sustainable use of natural resources and systems.

A wide range of options is available when it comes to reducing environmental impact and enabling the sustainable use of resources, which is why cleantech approaches can be applied in so many areas of trade and industry and throughout the value chain,

including the following sectors:

  • Air and environment
  • Emergency management
  • Energy efficiency
  • Energy production
  • Energy transfer and storage
  • Mobility
  • Recycling and waste
  • Site restoration
  • Water and wastewater

Switzerland has some extremely strong players, particularly in the areas of energy efficiency, renewable energies, automation and control, mobility, water and wastewater, waste management and the use of innovative materials. Since the Swiss market is too small for many of these companies, export is all the more worthwhile.
