MetLife Financing Framework

MetLife has a longstanding commitment to environmental, social, and governance practices.  MetLife’s Sustainable Financing Framework facilitates alignment of MetLife’s business and investment activities to support and drive a more sustainable future.

MetLife’s Framework is consistent with the International Capital Markets Association Green Bond Principles, Social Bond Principles and Sustainability Bond Guidelines.  In 2020, Metropolitan Life Insurance Company issued a $750 million green funding agreement under the Framework, securing the U.S. insurance industry’s first green funding agreement-backed note issued by Metropolitan Life Global Funding I. MetLife intends to allocate amounts equal to proceeds from sustainable financings under the Framework towards green and/or social assets from eligible categories including:

  • renewable energy, 
  • energy efficiency, 
  • green buildings,
  • clean transportation, 
  • sustainable water and wastewater management, 
  • pollution prevention and control,
  • environmentally sustainable management of living natural resources and land use,
  • access to essential services, and
  • affordable housing.
