Reducing our footprint

We take care 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.

Mitigating climate change risks is at the heart of Swiss Re's core re/insurance business. Reflecting our thought leadership in corporate climate action, we have been reducing our CO2 emissions and energy consumption for many years – through pioneering initiatives such as our Greenhouse Neutral Programme, the COyou2 Programme or the RE100 Initiative. Building on these successes, we are determined to help set the agenda again: In 2019, we committed to achieving net-zero emissions in our operations as early as 2030.

Our new CO2NetZero Programme

We are currently developing the plan that will get us to net-zero by 2030 – our new CO2NetZero Programme. Click on the links below to learn more about this upcoming programme and ongoing initiatives to reduce our footprint:
