Background

Building Bridges is an open and collaborative effort that aims to accelerate the transition to a  more sustainable economy in Switzerland and abroad. To this end, Building Bridges promotes the finance community’s contribution to realizing the SDGs. Practically, the initiative provides  a forum for discussion and cooperation among financial and other private sector actors and  institutions, public authorities, international organizations, as well as not-for-profit and  academic stakeholders dedicated to achieving the transition to a financial system that is fit  for the future. 

At the core of the initiative is the recognition that the scale and complexity of the transition  require “building bridges” between the multiple stakeholders in the finance, government, and  sustainable development communities.
