Swiss startups are set to unveil concrete climate solutions at the UN Climate Change Conference in Dubai, ongoing from 30 November to 12 December 2023. Amidst global climate challenges, Switzerland remains at the forefront of innovation, evident in its representation at COP28.
As part of the official Swiss delegation, President Alain Berset, Minister for the Environment, and Secretary of State for International Finance champion the nation’s ambitious climate goals on the global stage. Simultaneously, the first-ever Swiss Village in the ‘Green Zone’ showcases groundbreaking initiatives from six pioneering startups, including Clean Air Enterprise AG, Deasyl, Solskin, Daphne Technology, Tesenso, and LUQEL.
This innovative space, open to the public, anticipates 30,000 to 50,000 visitors daily and offers exhibitions, workshops, and interactive activities focused on climate change and sustainability. The Green Zone is situated at the former Expo 2020 Dubai site, transformed into a mini-city promoting clean, green, and tech-enabled living.
Switzerland’s impactful presence at COP28 aligns with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, fostering collaboration and knowledge-sharing among 197 countries and the EU. The Swiss Pavilion at Expo 2020, with 1.7 million visitors, underscores Switzerland’s commitment to climate action.
