Health cash insurer Medicash has become carbon neutral

Liverpool based health cash plan provider Medicash has achieved carbon neutral status.

In addition to carbon offsetting Medicash is aiming to reduce its carbon footprint by a further 10% over the coming year. To help achieve this goal the company is limiting its company car policy to vehicles with low CO2 emissions and is continuing to actively promote interest free loans to staff for public transport season tickets, together with the Ride 2 Work initiative.

Medicash offsets its carbon footprint by calculating the cash equivalent, multiplying this by a factor of ten and donating the resulting amount to the charity Cool Earth. Using donations, Cool Earth buys endangered rainforest on behalf of local communities and ensures it is kept safe for generations to come.

Medicash’s Sue Weir says: “As a socially responsible organisation with a history of charitable engagement we understand that it is vital for a company to be aware of the impact of its actions on the environment. Our relationship with Cool Earth ensures we are able to offset our carbon emissions.”
