Supply Chain Sustainability

Supply Chain Sustainability

MetLife’s Supply Chain Sustainability Program embeds sustainability criteria in our procurement process, including within requests for information and within supplier contracts, and incentivizes environmental stewardship to reduce GHG emissions. As part of our climate goals, we aim to engage 100 suppliers on setting GHG emissions reduction targets by 2025. Every year we request that suppliers respond to the CDP Climate Change Questionnaire.  

We share a scorecard with these suppliers that identifies areas of strength and opportunities for improvement on climate change management. We encourage suppliers to set targets to reduce emissions and offer resources to help them with this process.  

MetLife also has a longstanding commitment to purchase products that have a lower environmental impact than others. We prioritize Energy Star-certified IT equipment, sustainably sourced paper and green building materials.  

Please read our Supplier Code of Business Ethics for a comprehensive list of supplier expectations.
