Public-interest organization

Established in 2010, the Zermatt Summit Foundation is recognized by the Swiss government as an independent, public-interest organization.

The Foundation’s purpose is to create a unique international platform that promotes constructive, action-oriented dialogue between key stakeholders from business, academia, the arts, philanthropy, religion and politics. Since 2012, the Zermatt Summit – the Foundation’s flagship annual event – has connected, empowered and inspired over 1000 leaders to humanize globalization by harnessing the power of business for the Common good.

The Zermatt Summit aims to

  • Inspire, engage and connect business leaders and innovators from many different sectors and backgrounds to become catalysts for a more inclusive globalization.
  • Give business leaders the ethical, conceptual and operational building-blocks they need to build a more caring, sustainable world.
  • Facilitate collaboration between stakeholders around innovations that advance the common good.
