Our sustainability strategy supports our mission of making decisions easier and lives better. Building on our history as a trusted insurer, long-term investor and good corporate citizen, our strategy incorporates input from external and internal stakeholders, our learnings from ongoing engagement with external sustainability associations, and our experience over the years in this space. Our Sustainability strategy has four pillars:
We are actively incorporating climate change considerations into our decision making, including how we manage our operations, how we make investment decisions, and how we develop and offer financial products and services.
We believe that our success as a company depends on the success of the communities we serve. We want to create measurable impact in these communities by investing in their health and well-being.
In 2019, Manulife created a new framework for governance over Sustainability matters. This includes oversight by our Board’s Corporate Governance & Nominating committee as well as an Executive Sustainability Council.
