We believe that the commitments made by 195 countries in 2016 at the Paris Climate Conference, which represents a major milestone in the fight against climate change, have to be endorsed by everyone of us. We therefore created a specific page on our website relating our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint. Breakfast without palm oil products, gasoline free transportation, electricity produced with renewable energy. Unfortunately our heating comes from fuel oil, we are not allowed to place solar panels on our roof top.
The Swiss ETH University, where Einstein once worked, is now a nest of many spin-offs developing new green technologies. One example is Climeworks, the first company that developed a machine able to convert CO2 from the air into useful products.
We also encourage our guests to think about the CO2 emissions related to their journey to Zurich. We are very interested in sharing our experiences and learn from each other!
