MetLife engages and supports a variety of advocacy and industry groups, such as the Climate Leadership Council, U.S. Green Building Council, the Geneva Association and Institute for International Finance Sustainable Finance Working Group. We seek to leverage our resources and network to drive impactful climate action around the world.
MetLife has partnered with the Haas School of Business at University of California, Berkeley, to support the 15-week Cleantech to Market accelerator program, which pairs interdisciplinary teams of Berkeley graduate students with entrepreneurs from across the country to help accelerate commercialization of the most promising climate tech innovations. Each student team spends nearly 1,000 hours of structured research and assessment to investigate market opportunities and pitch business ideas to help elevate participating entrepreneurs and their climate technologies. In addition to providing financial support for the program and the “MetLife Climate Solution Awards” presented at the program’s annual Climate Tech Summit, MetLife colleagues contributed professional expertise to students through a mentorship program comprised of over a dozen MetLife colleagues from across the world.
