Climate compatibility

SECO supports measures to develop cities sustainably and to deliver clean energy to businesses and use it efficiently.

Climate change is one of the most serious issues facing the 21st century, and developing countries are particularly exposed to its impact. Climate action helps to mitigate greenhouse gases and enables communities to adapt to the consequences of global warming. Such measures concentrate on urban areas, as these generate the most climate-pollutant gases and are constantly growing.

SECO’s priorities

Developing cities sustainably

Environment, transportation and infrastructure should form part of urban planning from the outset.

Supplying energy sustainably

Electricity, heat and cold production should be clean and economical.

Promoting resource efficiency in the private sector

When banks and businesses address environmental concerns, this benefits the economy and the general population.
