Working to protect our planet with Cool Earth

Medicash is proud to work alongside Cool Earth, a charity that supports and empowers rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Through our partnership, we protect one tree for every policyholder covered.

Cool Earth is a project that works alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation and its impact on climate change.

Working with communities who want to protect their forest, the project shares the most effective conservation methods around the world and invests in the best outcomes for people and rainforest. A network of teams, local charities and communities work together to have the greatest impact on keeping trees standing. Since day one, each of Cool Earth’s partnerships has been community-led and adaptable to new threats to the forest.

By supporting Cool Earth, Medicash is taking the smartest climate action there is by helping keep the rainforest standing and keeping carbon where it belongs.

“As a socially responsible organisation, with a history of charitable engagement, we’ve been working hard to reduce our environmental impact. Giving financial support to Cool Earth each year ensures we are helping to protect the rainforest for the future. For all of our futures.”

– Sue Weir, Medicash Chief Executive

Rainforest and climate action

As one of Cool Earth’s early backers, we know that the best way to achieve a meaningful impact on the climate is by helping to protect some of the world’s most endangered tropical forest.

By working with Cool Earth, we want to go above and beyond in helping to support communities seeking to reduce deforestation and carbon emissions globally.

Since 2009, the partnership with Cool Earth has been helping us support local people in a global challenge. Cool Earth’s partners are guardians of the rainforest, and with our investment, have the potential to mitigate emissions from tropical deforestation.

“Medicash has been Cool Earth’s longest-standing funder of rainforest protection. Since 2009, a commitment to protecting rainforest has enabled Cool Earth to help the Asháninka and Awajún communities keep over 70,000 hectares of the Peruvian Amazon standing. This exceptional support of rainforest communities with Cool Earth underpins Medicash’s commitment to social responsibility and we are tremendously excited to see what the partnership is going to achieve over the coming years.”

– Matthew Owen, Director of Cool Earth
