The 'Pink Ribbon' campaign
||As the largest health insurer in Austria, we support the Pink Ribbon campaign to raise awareness of
the dangers and prevention options of breast cancer. Like many other buildings, monuments and sights
throughout the world, the UNIQA Tower was blanketed in pink light on 1 October.
Joint initiative for climate protection
Twelve companies of the Austrian Raiffeisen organisation founded
a private initiative against climate change in 2007, out of feelings
of social responsibility. The Raiffeisen Climate Protection Initiative
(RKI) under the presidency of the former EU Commissioner of
Agriculture, Franz Fischler, intends to contribute to emerging
synergies in the area of energy efficiency and to sensitising large
sections of the public with regard to climate protection.
Awarding of the GreenBuilding certificate of the EU.
Since the start of 2008, the UNIQA Tower can officially boast the EU GreenBuilding
certificate. The Austrian energy agency recognised the striking
building in Vienna as an energy-conscious new building. This
makes the UNIQA Tower the first new office building in Austria
to which this certificate has been issued. UNIQA also considered
possible energy-saving measures with regard to their costs as
well as economic and environmental advantages for the hotel
project currently under construction on Praterstrasse.
Corporate social responsibility
|70,000 €. As an act of corporate social responsibility, UNIQA and
Raiffeisen Zentralbank donated another €70,000 to the
hospice of Caritas, for the care and treatment of
with severe and untreatable illnesses.
UNIQA also makes a contribution to the conservation of endangered
species. In addition to transport insurance for the transfer
of two panda bears from China to the Vienna Zoo in Schönbrunn,
UNIQA also took on custom insurance for the duration of the
animals stay, including a newborn panda baby.
