MetLife named to FTSE4Good Index for positive practices

MetLife has been named to the FTSE4Good Index which highlights companies with strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices.

MetLife has a longstanding commitment to managing critical ESG issues

Created in 2001 by FTSE Russell, a wholly owned subsidiary of London Stock Exchange Group, the FTSE4Good Index helps promote a greater focus on sustainability among businesses and investors.

“MetLife’s inclusion in the FTSE4Good Index reflects our longstanding commitment to managing critical ESG issues sustainably and effectively,” says MetLife Chief Sustainability Officer Tim Ring. “How we manage our investments and environmental issues, and our efforts to improve financial health and support our talent, all help us deliver on our purpose and enhance the impact we have on society.”

MetLife receives high marks on risk management and environmental stewardship 

FTSE Russell evaluates companies across many ESG aspects. Overall, MetLife rated above average for the life insurance industry and substantially higher than the average for the financial services industry. When looking at individual score components, MetLife received particularly high marks — well above the life insurance industry average — on issues such as risk management and environmental stewardship.

On governance, MetLife separated its Chairman and CEO roles. On operational risk, MetLife expanded its Enterprise Risk Committee, which identifies and mitigates material risks to MetLife, to include senior leadership from all business units.

MetLife also has a long term commitment to environmental stewardship and supports a wide range of low-carbon initiatives
