Only citizens of a few countries need transit visa for airside Schengen transfer. Those are: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Democratic Republic of the Congo Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ghana, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Syria and Turkey, and only whey they do not have meet one of the requirements to get an exception of this rule.

Although as a citizen of Bangladesh you'd normally need an airport transit visa, since you are the permanent resident of US, you are exempt from this requirement. See https://www.eda.admin.ch/countries/usa/en/home/visa/entry-ch/transit.html and https://www.sem.admin.ch/content/dam/data/sem/rechtsgrundlagen/weisungen/visa/bfm/bfm-anh01-liste2-e.pdf

  • Beware that each Schengen country has its own additions to the common Schengen list of nationalities that need airport transit visas. They don't all match Switzerland's shown here. – hmakholm left over Monica Sep 30 '19 at 21:59
