Climate change is currently the biggest global challenge facing humanity, with effects that can now be seen everywhere in dramatic extreme weather events. It is time for an appeal to each individual to do more to protect the climate. As a daily companion, Zurich's new app aims to contribute to tackling the challenges of our time, thereby expanding the insurer's commitment to sustainability to its digital channels.
With the support of the IT service provider and mobile business expert adesso, Zurich has developed an app that intends to motivate people to behave more sustainably, but does so in an entertaining manner and without finger-pointing. Users are given important information on environmental and climate-related topics. The main purpose of the app is to provide valuable daily ideas and tips on how to better protect the environment by making small behavioural changes in everyday life. In addition to being shown how to reduce their personal carbon footprint, users can collect "motivation points" in order to become a "Planet Hero". For example, they are asked whether they avoided fruit with plastic packaging during their shopping trip, or whether they put up energy-saving LEDs with motion sensors on their house. There are so many examples of how each individual can make a difference in their environment.
