Sanitas helps protect the climate

Swiss Climate Foundation

Since 2010, Sanitas health insurance has made a concrete contribution to climate protection as a partner of the Swiss Climate Foundation. Swiss legislation on carbon emissions requires that both individuals and corporations pay a levy on fuels. Since it’s designed as an incentive tax, part of the levy is paid back to businesses. Sanitas donates the money paid back, minus the actual costs of energy, to the Swiss Climate Foundation. The Swiss Climate Foundation is an independent non-profit foundation under federal oversight.
