Building for tomorrow includes protecting the environment and ensuring a healthy future for our employees, customers, communities and other stakeholders. MetLife has a longstanding commitment to environmental stewardship and we are proud to be the first U.S. insurer to achieve carbon neutrality.
Our sustainability journey has taught us that bold environmental goals drive innovation, ambition and effective solutions. In 2018, we maintained our carbon neutral status by continuing to improve operational efficiency and finance carbon offset projects around the world.
We are on target to exceed our 2020 energy and climate goals by implementing energy efficiency projects and investing in green building design, sustainable behavior campaigns and real estate consolidation.
MetLife focuses on environmental management, energy efficiency and performance, including engaging employees and suppliers. We also monitor potential disruptions to our operations and supply chain from climate change, such as natural disasters and health crises, while our business continuity, facilities and crisis management teams prepare for such eventualities.
