Inventing the carbon-neutral society

zero emission group


We are Zero Emission Group, a student-led initiative aimed at raising awareness and working with stakeholders on and beyond the EPFL campus to catalyze sustainable action.

Our Vision

We dream of a society that can thrive within the planetary boundaries.

Global warming, biodiversity loss and unequal distribution of resources put the survival of humanity at stake. In the context of this urgency, we advocate for science-based solutions through innovation, social justice and sobriety. Our overall goal is to raise awareness about the scientific community’s issue and drive sustainable change through a collaborative engagement of the academic, private, and public sectors.

Our Mission

To prepare the engineers and the scientists of tomorrow for the world of tomorrow.

Our approach relies on two pillars : raising awareness and pioneering sustainable solutions with a focus on low-carbon action. We are convinced that making an example through pilot projects and best practices is an efficient way to engage stakeholders in an impactful dialogue at EPFL. Hands-on experience is also the best way to develop new competencies in a context of global transition.

Who Are We ?

Zero Emission Group is a growing group of EPFL students concerned by the consecutive scientific reports on global warming and sharing a strong will to bring science-based solutions to this issue. We are convinced that interdisciplinarity is a key component in the design of low-carbon solutions and that EPFL’s high reputation in scientific excellence will bring a credible voice to the climate crisis chapter. We are the engineers of tomorrow who are determined to use our high-level skills in the context of the low-carbon transition and to develop a unique expertise in the global fight against greenhouse gas emissions.

What Do We Do ?

To raise awareness about climate change in a technology and innovation-oriented environment, we organize Climate Talks and movie projections. We also position ourselves both in low-carbon action and dialogue on the campus. We are convinced that showcasing pilot projects and best practices is an efficient way to engage decision makers in a constructive climate dialogue at EPFL and will allow us to develop new skills in a global context of carbon transition.
