Our Approach

With our purpose at our core—Always with you, building a more confident future—sustainability at MetLife means sustaining people’s lives. 

Sustainability is central to our business strategy and is ingrained across our operations. With the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) as a guide, we are deploying the full strength of our people, products, services and investments to sustain our customers, our colleagues, our communities and our shareholders. 

We demonstrate our commitment through the security we provide to customers by paying claims during times of need, our activities and investments in the communities we serve, and the long-term investments we make in the broader economy.

Sustaining people’s lives is what we do—and it has been this way since MetLife opened for business in 1868.

Strategic Alignment with the UN SDGs

Our sustainability strategy is closely aligned with the UN SDGs to contribute toward meaningful change around the world. We have prioritized five of the 17 UN SDGs, given their relevance to our business. Examples of how MetLife's work contributes to the achievement of the UN SDGs are featured in the Appendix. MetLife is also a signatory to the UN Global Compact (UNGC). Please see the Appendix to learn more.
