At the heart of the sustainability movement is the Alliance for Sustainable Enterprises, a dynamic coalition of forward-thinking companies and organizations that truly understand the business sector's pivotal role in addressing today's most pressing societal issues. Our Mission is to fast-forward Swiss  business sustainability.

We firmly believe in and advocate for policies and standards that foster and incentivize virtuous business practices, creating a ripple effect of benefits for society at large. Encompassing over 500 active businesses in Switzerland and esteemed organizations, our Alliance serves as a testament to the power of collective action.

The Alliance is coordinated by Der Gewerbeverein, GWÖ Schweiz, öbu, Swiss Leaders, and B Lab Switzerland.​ The alliance is proud of its commitment to a participatory approach, ensuring that decisions are made through a consensus that reflects the diverse perspectives and expertise of all member organizations.

About our Alliance

About our Working Groups

The Alliance for Sustainable Enterprises attracts and invites a diverse array of experts from fields such as business, science, and politics, as well as from different regions of Switzerland.

These professionals voluntarily contribute their expertise to help shape policy suggestions and devise implementation guidelines. Within the Alliance, experts can participate in one of three specialized working groups:

  • Soon: Accounting & Auditing Working Group  (W2).

  • Soon: Incentives Working Group (W3)

What business leaders are thinking:

Nicole Bardet

Member of the Executive Board of Alternative Bank Switzerland

"For us, it would be very important to have a model for change and economic transformation. With the help of a legislative framework, we can be much stronger and can go much further."

Jean-Marc Fillistorf

Member of the Executive Board of Alternative Bank Switzerland

"A clear legal framework would make it easier to identify companies committed to sustainability. And thus stimulate others to join the movement."

Kathrin Amacker

Member of the Executive Board of Alternative Bank Switzerland

"I fully support this legal framework. Regulation and accountability are now the standard we must uphold for responsible businesses within value chains."
