UZH has set itself the target of becoming climate-neutral by 2030.

  • At least half of the emission reduction shall be achieved through own measures in university operations.
  • According to the Umsetzungsstrategie (Implementation Strategy), the reduction of the remaining emissions can be achieved through climate-protecting effects of UZH's own research. Only reduction potentials that are very likely to lead to real reduction effects by 2030 are taken into account. Assessment methods that are suitable from a climate perspective are under discussion.

Reduction measures are already being implemented in various areas, such as air travel or UZH canteens.
