Holcim

The first SwissBiz4Nature company that has committed to applying the SFN (nature-based solutions) approach - protecting, managing and restoring nature - in its activities is Holcim (Schweiz) AG.

The participation of this renowned company in our initiative is a great pleasure and the beginning of a common vision to engage companies strongly in the preservation of biodiversity.

Founded in late 2020 by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), engageability and IN-FINITUDE AG, SwissBiz4Nature is committed, by 2030, to demonstrate tangible, scientific-based and measurable NbS actions in Switzerland, which can be replicated around the world.  The companies will use the IUCN Global Standard for NbS™ to design and benchmark their progress.

Press release

The first Japanese beetles (classified as quarantine pests by the federal government) were caught in Ticino in 2017 and damage caused by them was recorded as early as 2020. Thanks to Agroscope's interactive Pollenn® map, the population of Ticino can now easily inform the responsible authorities about the presence of the dangerous pests. In this way, the further spread can be closely monitored.

Agroscope and Pollenn have worked closely together to develop new and innovative tools to easily register and manage field observations.

IN-FINITUDE was elected to join the SEIF Impact Academy program. This gave decisive momentum to the development of IN-FINITUDE’s «Pollenn» project. The program supports various companies in the fields of social and environmental entrepreneurship. Being part of it underlines that IN-FINITUDE is considered a serious player in the movement.  It also means that it gets support in the developing of its competitive edge (USP) and thus enabled to acquire new partners and investments.

IN-FINITUDE with its digital platform «Pollenn» was able to take part at the training program «Business Growth». The program was organized by SEIF (Social Entrepreneurship Impact & Finance) and Innosuisse (the Swiss Innovation Agency): six intensive training days with renowned experts, concluding in a pitch addressing an investors’ jury. This gives the development of «Pollenn» a further boost in the direction of a promising future. 

Many thanks to SEIF for the organization and to the social entrepreneurs present for the opportunity to exchange experiences in implementing «Business» for a sustainable world.
