To mark this special day, the company ran a celebration event. The virtual event took place on 16 November 2021 at the Volkshaus, in the company's founding city Jena. During the virtual event, Dr. Karl Lamprecht, President and CEO of the ZEISS Group, praised the company's successful past, celebrated its present and shared his outlook on the future.

"ZEISS' unique history and its exceptional achievements make it a truly extraordinary company. Its 175 years also demonstrate the company's high level of resilience and its willingness to accept change. And, above all, ZEISS' tremendous passion, coupled with its pioneering spirit and its pragmatism in challenging and pushing the limits of the technically feasible," said Dr. Lamprecht. "175 years of ZEISS are more than just a historical milestone in our corporate history. It's also what motivates us to look ahead and help contribute to a bright future shaped by technological innovations."

In a video message, German Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier congratulated all ZEISS employees around the world: "175 years of ZEISS is much more than an anniversary. Its interplay of entrepreneurial spirit, drive to research, and inventiveness make the ZEISS Group a pioneer of modern industry."

With the "Climate Meter", Kessler provides an international, cross-cultural communication tool for raising awareness about the state of the climate.
