Our climate approach

Operations: Substantially reducing emissions to lessen our footprint

Our substantial natural resource holdings have enabled us to realize net zero operations, meaning we remove more carbon from the atmosphere than our business operations emit. We are committed to reducing our absolute scope 1 and 2 emissions 35% by 2035.

 

 


 

Investments: Actively investing for a sustainable future

We acknowledge the important role continued progress on financed emissions will have on our enterprise-wide climate impact. We are committed to steering our investment portfolio to be net zero by 2050. We are taking a sector-based approach to assess our own investments, focusing first on heavy-emitting industries, such as power generation. We have committed to the Science Based Target initiative, to guide and validate our target setting, measurement and progress reporting. We will continue to grow our $39.8 billion portfolio of green investments, including renewable energy and energy-efficient buildings.

 

 


 

Products and Services: Contributing to climate change mitigation and resilience

Recognizing the benefits of a transition to a net zero world and a healthier planet, the products and services Manulife offers can empower customers to make their own sustainable choices and build resilience in the face of climate change.

 


 

 

A message from our President and CEO

“In making clear commitments on climate, we are setting a robust plan for our operations and our own investments. We are actively developing innovative products and services designed to contribute towards the urgent, global fight against climate change.”
