Our Employees’ 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.

Our signature program, Our Green Impact, provides both hands-on community volunteering and online learning opportunities, including discussion forums, speaker series, and newsletters. In 2019, 22 Green Teams in the United States, 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 sustainable commuting. In addition, employees worldwide completed more than 1,000 hours of green service.
