Prudential & the Environment
In keeping with our commitment to doing business the right way, Prudential Financial is taking a number of steps to minimize the impact of its business activities on the environment.

 

As a leading life insurer and asset manager, Prudential believes that a healthy environment helps us create and preserve value for our customers, employees and investors, and that deteriorating environmental conditions pose unacceptable challenges to our quality of life and our business.

We recognize the emerging risk of global climate change, and the impact it could have on our industry, our customers, our employees and our neighbors.  We have a strong corporate commitment to clean and renewable energy and energy efficiency, both in our operations and in our investments. 

By engaging with customers, investors, employees and other stakeholders, we will continue to develop our understanding of climate and energy, and take additional actions that protect the environment and strengthen our businesses. In this work, Prudential engages with a wide variety of stakeholder organizations, including:

  • Ceres
  • Investor Network on Climate Risk
  • Urban Land Institute’s Greenprint Center for Building Performance- Performance Committee
  • Principles for Responsible Investment - Property Working Group
  • Urban Land Institute’s Responsible Property Investment Council
  • Clinton Global Initiative – Energy Efficiency Working Group
  • U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Building Partnership Market Transformation Working Group

Prudential is also a signatory of the Geneva Association’s Statement on Climate Risk.

Prudential is focused on instilling the principle of environmental stewardship throughout our global businesses.  We believe that doing so benefits our clients, employees and shareholders- and future generations. 

Here's how we're making a difference:

  • Reducing Our Environmental Footprint
  • Investing Sustainably
  • Engaging with Stakeholders
