'COyou2 - Reduce and Gain' Program
In 2006, Swiss Re committed to financially support investments in specific personal CO2 reduction measures. The support will amount to a total of $5,300 per employee per period of five years, with Swiss Re contributing a maximum of 50 percent to any individual investment. Eligible projects include, the purchase of a hybrid car, the acquisition and installation of solar panels or heat pumps, or paid days off for participating in climate-related volunteering activities. The benefit is available to all employees globally who are permanently employed and who have been with the company for more than one year. Its value will be adjusted according to the FTE status per employee.
In 2013, carbon dioxide emissions comprised 82 percent of all U.S. greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere from human activities. The rising concern for our environment and the sustainability of the planet has led to more focused efforts on reversing the effects of climate change.
