Join the Zurich forest

As part of our continued efforts to reduce our environmental footprint and help mitigate climate change, we’re proud to announce that we’re offering to plant trees on behalf of our customers.

We’ve teamed up with Tree-Nation, an organisation specialising in re-forestation, to offer to plant trees for any of our customers who choose to take out, or renew Group Income Protection or Group Life Insurance from now until 1 December 2020.

The initiative

For every 100 members covered by a scheme, we’ll offer to plant 10 trees. So, for a scheme covering 300 people, that’s 30 trees! We’ll even offer to plant 10 trees if the scheme is a few employees short of the 100 too!

It’s as simple as that.

How does it work?

Once your scheme is on-risk or renewed, we’ll send a unique invitation to become a part of the Zurich forest.

There is no cost to take part and schemes are able to name the trees we plant! A certificate will be available to download detailing the types of trees planted and their exact location within the Zurich forest.

To ensure the trees are planted, they must be registered through the link we’ll provide, if they aren’t, the trees won’t get planted.

At Zurich, we take our social responsibility seriously, and this fantastic initiative is another example of our commitment to becoming one of the most socially and environmentally responsible businesses in the world.

Together we can make a difference and we hope to see you in the forest soon!
If you have any questions about the initiative, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by calling your usual Zurich contact on 0800 141 2002.
