Out of the starting gates: act is operational

30. April 2014

act, the new cleantech agency, has been operational since April. The agency was given a mandate by the Federation and Cantons to arrange target-setting agreements with businesses.

ACT is an organisation with a broad operating base, which supports businesses in the efficient use of resources


Just a few weeks ago its new Managing Director, Thomas Schildknecht, was introduced. Since receiving its mandate, act has already quickly recruited almost forty specialists to its network. These specialists help companies with the processes involved in target-setting agreements for climate and energy efficiency. They therefore support compliance with the federal and cantonal CO₂ and energy bill, and thus also assist with potential reimbursement of energy and climate levies.

act is an organisation with a broad operating base, which supports businesses in the efficient use of resources. As one of the five founding and support organisations of act, myclimate is heavily involved in the implementation of the project. So in addition to its previous activities, which were mainly focused on the voluntary market, myclimate is now taking on an important and ambitious role in the execution of the national climate-friendly energy transformation. myclimate therefore offers firms in Switzerland a comprehensive overall package when it comes to the reduction of CO2 emissions and the increase in energy efficiency.
