The big interview on sustainability
Well positioned, but still a long way to go
With the Paris Climate Agreement, sustainable investments in the financial sector have really taken off. Because of the urgent need for action, politicians have taken the reins. The necessary regulations have therefore increased exponentially worldwide in recent years. Sustainable investments will soon be 'mainstream' or 'The New Normal'. It is important that sustainability in companies is anchored and exemplified in corporate culture and at the strategic level. This is the strength of the Liechtenstein financial center, since sustainability has long been one of our core values. Consequently, living and acting in a credible and responsible manner is a distinguishing feature for Liechtenstein. We have already achieved some things, but we are certainly not yet where we would like to be, let alone where we want to go. A major challenge for instance is how technological change can be used to transform the economy into more sustainable ones.
