Responsibility for people and the environment
Sustainability has always been part of our value system here at CSS. We’ve made it our goal to reduce our ecological footprint. We’re reducing energy consumption at our real estate, especially our large administrative buildings, by 20% and lowering annual CO2 emissions by almost one-quarter. Public e-charging stations are another example of our commitment, which we will continue to build on.
As the leading health insurer, we also take responsibility for the general population. In this way, we live up to another of our core values: solidarity. Our employees are given the opportunity to take part in volunteering assignments lasting several days. Some of them help out in nursing homes and hospitals in the fight against the coronavirus, for example.
In addition, CSS supports the «Corona Immunitas» national research project, providing the considerable amount of CHF 2 million in funding. This is our way of making a contribution to overcoming the corona pandemic.
