We support local environmental and social initiatives with 5% of our wealth management fees. While we are investing in environmental and socially responsible companies globally we are also committed to support initiatives that foster local awareness, have a positive impact and create change towards more sustainable living in Switzerland.
Here is an overview of the Sustainable Initiatives we support:
WWF advocates the preservation of intact nature and the protection of the alps as a natural habitat on national and international level. The alps harbour the largest biological diversity in Europe. At the same time, it is the most utilized mountain range in the world. WWF promotes a careful utilization of the alp region, protects precious areas and fights for connected habitats.
