Frankfurt am Main, April 20, 2022: The insurer DA Direkt, a Zurich Germany Group company, launches the Your Climate Choice pilot program in the field of motor vehicle insurance together with Zurich Global Ventures. The project consists of launching a platform through which customers can understand and improve their personal carbon footprint. You have the opportunity to offset your own CO2 emissions by supporting climate protection projects. Offset initiatives support nature conservation projects and the promotion of renewable technologies.
The project, which will initially start in a pilot phase until July 30, is part of Zurich’s sustainability strategy. “Zurich pursues the goal of becoming one of the most sustainable companies in the world. This is where we want and will make our contribution with DA Direkt,” explains Peter Stockhorst, CEO of DA Direkt. “We offer more than just insurance. And now we are helping our customers to do something to counteract the effects of climate change quickly. and simple when they take out their car insurance. With Your Climate Choice in cooperation with Zurich Global Ventures, we are taking the next step on our new path: digital, sustainable.”
And this is how it works:
For customers who take out car insurance on the DA Direkt website, their carbon footprint is calculated. The calculation is made taking into account the fuel consumption based on the kilometers travelled, the vehicle model, the production and transportation of the fuel and the infrastructure through which the vehicle circulates. Finally, customers have the option to financially support one of several selected climate protection projects from the Zurich cooperation partner ClimatePartner.
ClimatePartner is committed to improving the lives of people, animals and the biosphere through ambitious climate protection measures around the world. Your Climate Choice now offers clients a platform to take proactive steps to offset greenhouse gas emissions by supporting internationally recognized climate protection projects.
“Your Climate Choice is an effective sustainability initiative and at the same time an offer that promotes interaction with customers. At Global Ventures, we test customer-centric ideas and service offerings. We are very excited to be working with DA Direkt and the opportunity it opens up for our businesses,” said Jack Howell, CEO of Zurich Global Ventures.
