Swiss Medtech represents medtech sector interests – communicating with politicians, official administrations, the media, and the general public – through focused campaigns and other relevant projects.
Energy is scarce. Let's not waste it.
As member of the Energy Saving Alliance, Swiss Medtech is actively involved in the federal govern-ment's «Energy is scarce. Let's not waste it» campaign. Gas and electricity shortages will be very challenging for the economy and the general population this winter 2022/2023. To counteract the potential crisis, the Federal Council has plans to rapidly boost the security of energy supply in Switzerland. One measure is the «Energy is scarce. Let's not waste it» campaign. Swiss Medtech has joined the Energy Saving Alliance and is committed to raising aware-ness for the initiative among its over 700 members. Companies can find further information and a toolkit - including energy-saving tips and templates for internal communication - on the campaign website.
I would love…
In 2021, the Swiss Medtech Board of Directors collaborated with the Executive Board to initiate and develop a longer-term strategy titled «Medtech in Switzerland 2030». The report, published on 17 May 2022, includes a series of representative «I would love ...» campaign visuals which were created as part of the project. After all, medical products are associated with the desire to live a fulfilled life, free of impairments. The chance to improve people's quality of life is the best motivation to help the medtech industry achieve its goals.
