For the Environment


Our Approach

MetLife has had a longstanding commitment to environmental stewardship during its 156-year history. We leverage our capabilities as a financial services provider to navigate life’s uncertainties, including those related to climate change and other environmental issues. We recognize that environmental issues can impact our customers’ and employees’ well-being and financial futures, and that protecting human health and natural resources is core to doing business responsibly.

That is why we support the intentions of the Paris Agreement for managing and reducing GHG emissions and are pursuing an approach to reducing emissions over the coming decades toward Net Zero GHG emissions for our global operations and GA investment portfolio by 2050 or sooner.1

We manage and monitor climate and other environmental risks and opportunities while collaborating on solutions that support the transition to a low-carbon economy. Please see Our Net Zero Commitment and  Environmental Initiatives Progress to learn more.
