Funding programmes

The Swiss Climate Foundation provides funding support to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Qualifying SMEs either use energy efficiently themselves in their operations or develop climate-friendly products. In addition, the Foundation supports SMEs that agree voluntary energy-efficiency goals with one of two participating energy agencies, either Energy Agency Swiss Private Sector or Cleantech Agency Switzerland.

In addition to providing these three funding opportunities for SMEs, the Swiss Climate Foundation through its forest maintenance programme (Waldpflegeprogramm) supports projects that keep remote forests functioning as effective carbon sinks.
