The interest in the 3rd national call for projects to the Zurich Climate Prize Switzerland & Liechtenstein was huge as known from previous years. A total of 97 projects was entered, 40 of which by start-ups. The independent jury has chosen the winners:
With its Climate Prize, Zurich promotes projects that contribute to reducing CO2 emissions by lowering resource consumption, increasing energy efficiency or bringing about changes in behavior. Individuals, small and medium-sized companies, start-ups, municipalities, institutions, associations and unions as well as companies active across regions and internationally had the opportunity to participate.
Since 2009, the Zurich Insurance Company Ltd. has been honoring projects that make a sustainable contribution to climate protection by awarding 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.
