Modern society in the 21st century demands of itself that it act sustainably and thus leave an intact social, ecological, and economic system to future generations. Our society cannot and should not consume its own future or the future of its children.
Sensible, socially integrated action is therefore increasingly becoming a focus of consumers, businesses, investors, and public institutions. The keyword is often sustainability. The goal is to take more responsibility for society, the environment, and culture, in combination with steady growth. Sustainability is becoming an integral component of the business model and must increasingly be reflected in companies and their products.
Looking at the financial service industry as a mediator or interface whose purpose is to ensure the interplay and smooth functioning of society and the real economy, it is only logical that the financial service industry and its products also measure themselves by this purpose. Accordingly, the financial market will in future fulfill an even greater steering function. Signals for sustainable products and social change will increasingly come from the financial market. Only in this way can it be ensured that financial services, the economy, and society form a responsible and future-oriented cycle.
Responsibility and commitment to sustainability are traditionally a big part of the Liechtenstein financial center and are continuously cultivated and further developed through various activities and initiatives as well as special niche products.
