Join us in our commitment!

Since 2011, the Zurich Insurance Company Ltd. has been honoring projects that make a sustainable contribution to climate protection with the Zurich Climate Prize Switzerland & Liechtenstein. It aims at promoting a dialogue on the complex subject of climate change. Zurich reinvests refunded CO2 steering tax contributions in the Zurich Climate Prize.


The Zurich Climate Prize Switzerland & Liechtenstein will be awarded for the third time in 2016. Projects are sought that contribute to reducing CO2 emissions by cutting resource consumption, increasing energy efficiency or bringing about changes in behavior.

The current call for projects has generated 97 submissions, each an important signal for the reduction of greenhouse emissions. The independent jury will now assess the projects and decide on the winners.
