Green Office

Our Green Office program aims to reduce the environmental impact of our daily work practices and focuses on reducing our water usage, paper consumption and electricity usage, and encouraging recycling.

  • Zurich Australia sources 50 per cent of its electricity from green power resulting in savings particularly in water usage and greenhouse gases.
  • By giving employees information and practical help such as reminder notes above light switches and separate recycling bins in cafeterias, Zurich helps them play their part in reducing their environmental impact.
