It is a comprehensive examination of how Swiss companies are addressing climate change-related challenges and opportunities. We presented the study’s results for the first time at Forum ö 2023.

However, as we discussed the impact of climate change with participating companies, it also became clear that collaboration and co-creation of solutions are essential to bring about sustainable change.
