Good for people, planet and Business
Introducing BELU filtration across Zurich’s offices has meant the Zurich team have still and sparkling, chilled and hot water, readily available at the touch of a button.
Employee wellbeing is key for Zurich and ensuring everyone is well hydrated and has a good reason to take a quick break from their screens for a drink is all part of delivering that.
Switching to BELU filtration has enabled Zurich to eradicate the need for single use plastic bottles throughout the business. Less waste, a lower carbon footprint and less of a logistical and storage challenge. Good news all round.
