Sustainable Development Report 2012
Neuchâtel, 30.04.2012 (FSO) - Living conditions in Switzerland are good and at a high level in international comparison. Inequalities persist, however, both at the national and international levels. The consumption of non-renewable resources does not make it possible to preserve available stocks for future generations. These are the main conclusions of the "Sustainable Development Report 2012" published by the Federal Statistical Office (FSO), the Federal Office for Spatial Development (ARE), the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).

The global dimension of sustainable development
Neuchâtel, 15.12.2008 (FSO) - Switzerland is increasingly meeting its responsibility for global sustainable development. Thus, policy measures give developing countries easier access to the Swiss market and Swiss consumers are buying more and more fair-trade products. At the same time, however, non-sustainable trends are also observable. This is evident from a new set of indicators on the global dimension of sustainable development which was developed by the Federal Statistical Office (FSO) and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
