Why we made a stand.
Did you know... HIF was Australia’s first carbon neutral health fund, as certified by the Carbon Reduction Institute (CRI) on 25 September 2008. By getting our greenhouse in order and offsetting our emissions, we're officially environmentally friendly.
We could talk about our ‘commitment to being ethical’ or ‘corporate social sustainability’, like so many other health funds. But it’s really much simpler than that. We’re a green organisation because we care.
Rather than paying lip service to ethics, we believe in actually doing the right thing – by our members, the community and the planet.
As a not-for-profit health fund, it’s in our nature. After all, a healthier environment is better for everyone.
