Empowering employees to make a green impact
Thousands of MetLife employees take advantage of sustainability education and volunteering opportunities to reduce their environmental impact at work, at home, and in their communities.
These popular programs embody our philosophy of empowering employees to take ownership of the company’s actions and impacts. Our signature program, Our Green Impact, provides both hands-on community volunteering and online learning activities, including discussion forums, a speaker series, and newsletters.
We also launched a new environmental educational course on the MetLife My Learning platform to empower employees to take action in their workplaces and communities and become champions of MetLife’s environmental strategy and goals. The course was translated into the primary language of each MetLife office to ensure all global employees have the tools they need to become environmental champions at their offices.
Green Teams lead the way
Twenty-two Green Teams in the U.S., Asia, and Latin America (up from 19 in 2018) led local office-based Our Green Impact activities during the year, including energy conservation, recycling, and alternative commuting. In addition, employees worldwide completed more than 1,000 hours of green service, including activities in honor of Earth Day. In the U.S., employees cleaned up trash from the coastal waterways in Florida. In Korea, employees planted nearly 200 trees at a former trash site that has been transformed into a national ecology park.
