We want to lead by example and work to minimise the environmental impact of our operations. Bringing our CO2 emissions to net-zero and reducing energy consumption are key targets across the Group.
As a knowledge company in the financial services sector, we do not cause large environmental impacts through our own operations. Nonetheless, we firmly believe that as a company committed to sustainability we should minimise our environmental footprint, thus leading by example.
For our core re/insurance business, climate change represents a key topic. Reflecting this, we have been focusing on our own CO2 emissions and energy consumption for many years. Our pioneering initiatives include the Greenhouse Neutral Programme and the COyou2 Programme. Both are now into their second cycles, running from 2013 to 2020.
Furthermore, we apply sustainability guidelines to our sourcing activities. Extending our efforts beyond our company, we continue to play an active role in the Swiss Climate Foundation.
