MetLife Investment Management and the Environment

We believe our focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors is a crucial part of our mission. Through three operating directives – Partner, Guide, and Sustain – our ESG program enhances value for the community, our clients and the real estate investments we manage on their behalf:

  • Strategic Partner: Engage and dialogue with our stakeholders – from tenants and residents, the community, to our staff, clients, and investors – helping facilitate win-win, long-term relationships.
  • Guide: Identify, analyze and mitigate risks. Leverage research and data to inform our decision making, and operate through robust management and governance controls.
  • Sustain: Recognize the impact of buildings on people and the environment, and work towards healthy, productive, efficient and prosperous real estate. Our broad-based energy and sustainability strategy is centered on EPA’s Energy Star program and U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification programs.
