The «Cause We Care» Mechanism

Easy climate protection with double the impact! This is how «Cause We Care» works in a nutshell. Everybody is asked to do their part: You and your company, as well as your guests and customers. Because together, we can achieve great things on a global and and local level.

As a «Cause We Care» company, you give your guests or customers the chance to make a voluntary contribution to climate protection. This contribution flows directly into your «Cause We Care» fund, which is earmarked for a special purpose, and your guest receives a climate-neutral offer. At the same time, you double the contribution to the fund. If you have already implemented or are planning specific measures, credit will naturally be given for them.  

 

The fund makes global and tangible, local climate protection possible: Half of the customer contributions flow into a high-quality climate protection project from myclimate. The other half is available to you as a “grant” for your own sustainability measures.  You can now use this “grant” and your fund contribution to finance measures, for example:

  • Replace fossil energy sources with renewable energy sources
  • Realising an efficient building shell, improved infrastructure and facilities
  • Installation einer E-Car & E-Bike Ladestation
  • Schulung Ihrer Mitarbeitenden in Sachen Ressourcen- und Energieeffizienz

Or have you always wanted to show children and young people how to carefully interact with nature? Effective climate protection starts with the smallest intentions and can develop into large, pioneering projects. «Cause We Care» gives you the funding you need. It’s a win-win-win situation for you, your guests and the climate! So that future generations will also be able to enjoy Switzerland’s breathtaking nature.

Step by Step

  • Your company offers your guests and customers the chance to make a small, voluntary contribution to climate protection and sustainability when they make a booking or purchase a service / product.
  • Your guests and customers think your initiative is a nice idea. When they book or make a purchase, they volunteer to pay the additional «Cause We Care» contribution. As direct added value, your climate-neutral product / climate-neutral service is confirmed.
  • Your company rewards the voluntary contribution by matching the amount guests and customers pay. Measures that have already been implemented or planned are of course also taken into account. And that follows the slogan: Do good and talk about it!
  • Both contributions – the one from the company and the one paid by customers and guests – are channelled into your earmarked «Cause We Care» fund, which is linked to your company.
  • Now the fund is activated, both globally and locally: Globally speaking, half of the customer’s contribution flows into an international climate protection project selected by your company. Locally speaking, the other half of the customer’s contribution and the amount which your company matched is used for climate protection and sustainability measures directly within your operations or locally.

In sum, this means: «Cause We Care» gives your guests and customers the chance to assume responsibility for the greenhouse gases they cause. In turn, your company improves its own resource efficiency so that fewer greenhouse gases are emitted in future.

A big plus: Together, you have made it possible to achieve great things with «Cause We Care». And you have also made it possible for subsequent generations to enjoy Switzerland’s breathtaking nature in all its diversity with their children and grandchildren.  

A second plus: With «Cause We Care», you are helping nature conservation and climate protection take centre stage. The measures you have taken let you show in a pleasant way that climate protection and sustainability start right at our doorsteps and can be fun.
