In the pursuit of its core business ‒ financial provision and consulting ‒ Swiss Life contributes directly to the sustainability of society and the economy. Swiss Life also aims to act responsibly in its everyday business, as an employer, as part of society and with respect to the environment. That is why we are committed, inter alia, to the goal of the 2015 Paris Agreement of limiting global warming to well below 2°C.

Being a responsible and sustainable company is of central importance to us as an organisation and to our offering.
