Medicash is one of the UK’s oldest and largest healthcare insurers. As one of Cool Earth’s leading partners, they believe in strong relationships.
For six years, Medicash has worked alongside Cool Earth to cover their carbon emissions ten times over. Not content with that, they have also supported both Asháninka and Awajún communities in Peru, funding everything from new classrooms and solar panels to medical outposts.
Ever the innovator, they have incentivised customers to go paper free by linking Cool Earth donations to PlusPoints, their electronic document policy. Customers receive points for going paper free and can support Cool Earth. With 811 acres of rainforest already protected, the partnership is going from strength to strength.
“As a socially responsible organisation, with a history of charitable engagement, we’ve worked hard to reduce our 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.”

Medicash are partnering with 16 Asháninka villages to save 811 acres of rainforest in Peru.
The Asháninka are Peru’s largest indigenous nation and until now have lived deep in the heart of the amazon rainforest. Today, the deforestation frontline has arrived on their doorstep. Our Asháninka Partnership is in the Ene Valley, one of the world’s most at-risk areas. Illegal logging and the cocaine trade are destroying the forest. With the support of Medicash, Cool Earth is linking villages together to shield millions of acres of neighbouring forest.
Medicash has saved 143 acres of rainforest in northern Peru by working alongside 7 Awajún villages.
Our Awajún Partnership is located in one of Peru’s highest risk areas where oil and gold extraction are destroying vast swathes of ancestral forest. With funding from Medicash, Cool Earth is working to halt this destruction.
