GreenBuzz Zurich is a non-for-profit organisation with a network of 3500 business changemakers that was founded in 2010 by Falko Paetzold, who later went on to found the Center for Sustainable Finance at the University of Zurich.

The world is not moving fast enough to achieve the 1.5° scenario laid out by the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, which is why we need change to happen now.

At GreenBuzz, we believe that in order to get the change that is needed, we have to get business on board, which includes the big players as well as SMEs and startups.

Therefore, we enable cross-sectoral connections between sustainability experts and enthusiasts who drive sustainability forward from within their organisations.
