The Foundation Board represents the supreme body of the foundation. As a matter of principle, its members are volunteers. The committee is responsible for the compliance with the deed of foundation and the strategic orientation of the organisation, as well as issuing the necessary regulations for the management of the foundation. It sets the annual goals, and approves the yearly results. The myclimate Foundation Board constitutes itself, and appoints its own members. Urs Egger has been President of the myclimate Foundation Board since 2015.
The new myclimate Foundation Board members

Since 2019, Scherer has been supporting Lucerne’s economy as Head of Corporate Development at the Lucerne Economic Development Agency.
The second newcomer to myclimate’s Foundation Board, Fredi Gmür, is a proven expert in sustainable development.
