Zurich’s contribution

For Zurich, addressing current and future risks is of central importance. This also includes climate change. As a global leader in risk management, we are doing everything to recognize the impact and risks relating to climate change and to develop products and services that protect our customers from these risks. On a number of levels, Zurich addresses how exactly climate change impacts our lives, and what each individual can do to counteract climate change. So that our environment and our habitat stay in balance.

“Wetterfroscher” education program

Zurich supports the “Wetterfroscher” school program developed by Meteotest and has been involved in the development of the new chapters “Weather and Climate” and “Natural Hazards”. The program is aimed at classes and teachers in primary school and fosters an understanding of the environment at an early age. In a fun course, the kids learn how weatherrelated dangers put people at risk and how they can protect themselves.
