Climate change is one of humanity’s greatest global challenges. The effects are currently being felt everywhere in the form of threatening, extreme weather events. To stop this development, people and companies must actively protect the climate.
Zurich Versicherung is leading the way. The company was the first insurance provider to commit to complying with the agreement to limit the planet’s warming to 1.5 degrees and has consistently aligned its corporate strategy with it. Its goal is to become one of the most sustainable companies in the world.
‘Accordingly, we’ve firmly anchored various sustainability initiatives into our corporate strategy. Examples of these initiatives include the “Zurich Forest” reforestation project and the recently announced sustainability partnership with circumnavigator and climate ambassador Boris Herrmann,’ states the company on its website. In addition to the specially created ‘Planet Hero Award’ for forward-looking projects that aim to improve environmental and climate protection, Zurich wanted to expand its commitment to sustainability on its digital channels.
