Tackle today's societal challenges.

Seize new business opportunities.

Boost innovation.

The Swiss Triple Impact (STI) is an engagement program for moving the Swiss ecosystem effectively towards a resilient economy. It is initiated by the non profit organization B Lab Switzerland. This program, unique at the European level, assists Swiss companies to measure their contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and thus to identify the most important areas for improvement, while at the same time opening up new business opportunities and boosting innovation. The STI program creates a dynamic allowing commitment across the country, with an overall target to engage more than 3,000 companies in a wide range of sizes and sectors.

The STI program brings together a community of impact-driven businesses, creating an ecosystem of organizations committed to a sustainable future. Throughout the 3-year program, participating companies will benefit from B Lab’s tools, such as the SDG Action Manager and will receive tailor-made support through coaching, workshops, peer-to-peer learning networks and access to experts in the field. Approximately ten regional platforms will be created, each made up of first-class partner organizations, such as chambers of commerce, economic promotion services, employers' associations, academic circles and other key organizations active in local economic development.

Companies will complete the STI Pathway by putting into play their new action plans and submit advances to be considered as potential members of the STI Directory.

Initiated by B Lab Switzerland with the UN Global Compact Network Switzerland & Liechtenstein, Partners for a New Economy (P4NE), Swiss Philanthropy Foundation, and Lunt Foundation, the STI has a wide range of partners. The program is financially supported by the Swiss Agency of Development and Cooperation (SDC).


Today, COVID-19 is not only creating new societal challenges, but is exacerbating long-standing ones, particularly around inequality, poverty, and public health. It is time to create a sustainable and resilient prosperity for all. We will achieve this by supporting a new vision of economics and its relationship with the rest of the world; an economy that supports human well-being and social equity, while reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. With the opportunity of the next ten years to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, each business can contribute to, and can be an example for others in building a resilient, inclusive and regenerative economy.

A growing movement of people and businesses are aware of the need to redefine the notion of success in the economy, so that businesses, in addition to being prosperous, positively impact people and the planet. ​

The Swiss Triple Impact (STI) is designed to enable Swiss businesses to achieve this triple impact.
