The Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) promotes the development of innovative environmental technologies with federal funding. It works closely with private firms and institutions of applied research.
The FOEN's promotional efforts are meant to
- protect the environment with resource-efficient products, technologies and processes
- strengthen the resource efficiency and competitiveness of the Swiss economy
Environmental technology promotion (UTF) is the instrument that creates the framework for this.
