MetLife Named to the 2017 Dow Jones Sustainability Index
MetLife, Inc. (NYSE:MET) today announced that it has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), a widely-recognized standard for corporate responsibility that tracks leading sustainability-driven companies.
DJSI scores companies based on their management of a variety of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues: corporate governance, risk management, branding and reputation, climate change mitigation, supply chain standards and labor practices. MetLife was eligible for the DJSI North America, which recognizes a group of the top 20 percent of sustainability performers across the 600 largest U.S. and Canadian companies. MetLife was one of only seven insurers in North America to make the list.
“MetLife is committed to delivering value for all of its stakeholders,” said Steve Kandarian, MetLife’s chairman, president and chief executive officer. “We are proud to be recognized by DJSI for the important steps we are taking to be a more sustainable company.”
