Our actions for a brighter future

Limit temperature increases

Zurich Insurance Group has signed-up to the Business Ambition for 1.5°C Pledge aimed at limiting average global temperature increases to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.

The Group has also joined UN Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance and the UNEP FI Net Zero Insurance Alliance as a founding member, committing to a zero-emission portfolio of investments by 2050.

As part of the Zurich Insurance Group we are committed to playing our part in limiting temperature increases by taking a number of actions particularly in relation to our work environment.

Zurich currently has three office buildings in Ireland. In all locations sustainability in managing the offices is key. Our newly built office in Blackrock, Co. Dublin, is Gold LEED Certified for energy environmental design.

We recognise that commuting each and every day to work can have a great impact on our climate. At Zurich we support a number of actions to help our employees manage their commute.
