A certificate for our commitment to protecting the climate
Our company has been certified by ClimatePartner, and that’s something we’re very proud of. The implementation of climate-friendly measures comprises a variety of approaches, and the most effective in terms of Zurich Convention Center’s day-to-day operations is its corresponding catering concept. This includes the use of regional and seasonal products and an imaginative range of vegan and vegetarian dishes. When it comes to the building itself, the focus is on the fact that 70% of heat regulation is covered by using water from nearby Lake Zurich. Moreover, our central location is one of the most relevant criteria from a climate perspective: people within the city of Zurich who are attending the Center can arrive on foot or use public transport.
Finally, there’s our involvement with a project promoting efficient cookstoves in Uganda. Almost every household in Uganda uses firewood or charcoal for cooking, but the project we support replaces traditional stoves with improved and much more efficient burners. This immediately has three positive outcomes: less fuel is consumed, the health of people in Uganda is improved, and deforestation in this East African country is reduced.
All of these measures mean that Zurich Convention Center Ltd. is making a meaningful contribution to climate protection – and at no additional cost to event organizers.
The ClimatePartner certification confirms that Zurich Convention Center Ltd. has fulfilled five important criteria to protect the climate. ClimatePartner Switzerland Ltd. is one of the leading institutions that awards climate protection certifications, and it also assists us in an advisory capacity. Together we ensure that Zurich Convention Center will continue to lead the way when it comes to protecting the climate. You can find all the relevant information on the Climate-ID website.
