It’s April and time for Earth Day, the annual celebration of the environment. It reminds us that New York’s Life’s commitment to long-term financial security, stability and humanity includes a commitment to the environment.

New York Life’s Environmental Sustainability Policy Statement

Mission and Values
New York Life’s mission is to provide financial security and peace of mind through our products and services. The long-term view and core values of humanity, integrity and financial strength associated with that mission underscore our Company’s genuine concern for the markets and environments in which we do business.
Every decision we make, every action we take has one overriding purpose: To be here when our customers need us.
In that spirit, and recognizing that environmental sustainability is a continuous process rather than a time-bound project, we are committed to making the most appropriate and responsible use of our natural resources in delivering products and services to our customers, now and in the future.

New York Life has long supported programs related to environmental sustainability in the workplace. In that regard, we aspire to reduce our greenhouse gases emissions by:

  • Reducing energy consumption associated with operating our buildings, data centers and other technology
  • Employing electronic communication in lieu of print when permitted, appropriate and feasible
  • Adhering to or exceeding applicable recycling guidelines in the communities where we do business
  • Encouraging our employees to embrace these environmentally friendly behaviors
