Legal Expert Group

Download White Paper

The legal expert group is a collaborative forum tasked with assessing the legal changes needed to introduce and establish the status of "Sustainable Enterprises" within the Swiss legal system. This group is composed of independent legal experts and operates under the coordination of the Alliance.  By examining current laws and suggesting potential legal instruments, such as ordinances and amendments to the code of obligation, the working group aims to enhance the clarity, uniformity, and enforcement of the new legal status for sustainable enterprises.

 

In December 2023, the group published "Legal Status for Sustainable Enterprises in Switzerland", a paper, which aims at informing and inspiring Swiss legislators and policy makers in their assessment of the various policy intervention options.
