The SWITCH Alliance

Accelerate the switch to a green economy mission

Mission

SWITCH, the Alliance for a Green Economy, wants to accelerate the switch to a green economy in order to contribute to an innovative, resilient, competitive society that reconciles social equity, the environment and the quality of life. SWITCH works for the emergence of a clear social, political and economic vision and leadership, the development of greater coherence in government policies and interventions, and the convergence of public, private, cooperative, mutual, associative and civil society initiatives in favour of a green economy.
