Creating a Sustainable Future
Sustainability is core to our strategic plan. With the support of our community, we plan to max out our solar potential by installing solar panels across both campuses.
We are switching to 100% renewable energy by 2030, and we have ambitious targets to drastically reduce our energy consumption.
Each panel will produce approximately 435 watts of energy at peak capacity for a combined annual yield of nearly 300,000 kWh once all panels are fully online. That's enough to power more than 67 homes a year!
Support the installation of solar panels by making a donation to the Annual Fund.
As a non-profit organization, Zurich International School reinvests all of its income into improving the ZIS experience. Philanthropy allows us to go beyond what tuition and fees allow. The Annual Fund is a collective effort made by the ZIS community to raise donations in support of strategic school priorities every year.
Your tax-deductible donation, no matter the size, will have an impact.
Donations that fully fund individual solar panels (i.e., donations in the amounts of 100, 500, 1000, 5000, and 15000 CHF/USD) come with the opportunity to name the panel. Donations in any other amounts are welcome and can be made here.
