Building Bridges 2021

A contribution of Switzerland to the SDGs

Ambassador Jürg Lauber, SDC Director Patricia Danzi and several high-profile personalities including Federal Councilor Ueli Maurer and United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Amina J. Mohammed opened the Building Bridges Summit, 2021 edition, on 29 November. Vibrant calls were made to develop the certification and transparency of financial products, notably with respect to forests and climate; UN DSG Mohammed highlighted the importance of Geneva, birthplace of multilateralism, as the nerve center for a dialogue between the private sector, academia, NGOs and international organizations to connect the power of finance to the needs of a transition to a sustainable economy. Switzerland remains committed to the Sustainable Development Goals and brings its contribution in this way - and many others.
