Information on the system

  • Is Switzerland on the pathway to sustainable development?
  • What are the positive and negative developments?
  • What impact does Switzerland and our way of life have on other countries?

The MONET 2030 indicator system gives an overview of sustainable development in Switzerland, providing a picture of the progress made towards the 17 sustainable development goals (SDG) of the United Nations 2030 Agenda as well in relation to certain topics specific to Switzerland. Comprising over 100 indicators on three environmental, social and economic aspects, the system is structured around the 17 SDGs. Three cross-sectional approaches, “global impacts and responsibilities”, “gender equality” and “social cohesion” highlight certain connections and interdependencies with the SDGs. 23 key indicators present a brief summary of sustainable development in Switzerland. Lastly, a selection of indicators from the system help monitor the Federal Council’s sustainable development strategy.

The indicators are updated once a year in autumn
