Sanitas is committed to climate protection

Climate protection

Sanitas has been a partner of the Swiss Climate Foundation since 2010. Sanitas donates revenue from the environmental levy to projects aimed at climate protection. The Swiss Climate Foundation is an independent non-profit foundation under federal supervision.

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 a voluntary initiative run by business for business. Its corporate partnerships allow the foundation to award one to three million Swiss francs in funding towards climate protection projects annually.

The foundation sponsors projects in the following areas:

  • Promotion of innovative projects in the building sector to cut CO2 emissions
  • Solutions for sustainable insect breeding
  • Dual use of parking spaces and other areas for the production of solar power
