Zero Emission Group - Landscape - Rolex Learning Center

A bit of history

Zero Emission Group was founded in 2019 as an EPFL student association to fight the climate crisis through a collaborative engagement of the public, academic and private sector. While at the beginning, our work mostly revolved around Sustainable Finance and Life Cycle Assessment, other projects have quickly seen the light of day in our association. In fact, two of them have outgrown us to become independent organisations – our Digital Sobriety project became a startup called Resilio, and our carbon capture project became the Carbon Team, a MAKE project at EPFL.

Zero Emission Group continues their work in this spirit, by providing a platform for students who want to realize projects around sustainability, in a welcoming community that supports them in what they do.

We value a global approach to sustainability, representing all of society. This is why we are proud to have become a student association of UNIL in May 2023, allowing us to recruit students from social and natural sciences equally.
