Our Sustainability Journey

A message from President and Chief Executive Officer Eric Steigerwalt.

eric steigerwalt

Our commitment to sustainability is embedded in our company’s strategy and culture. Our mission is to help people achieve financial security. With more than 2 million customers, we are proud that many people trust us to help protect what they’ve earned and ensure it lasts. The values displayed by our employees every day – collaboration, adaptability, and passion – shape how we make a positive impact on our distribution partners, their clients, and our communities.

Since becoming an independent, publicly traded company in 2017, we have focused on enhancing our sustainability strategy across our organization, including in the ways we develop and distribute our products; manage our investment portfolio; attract, develop, and retain our talent; support our communities and partners; and impact the environment. Our sustainability efforts are guided by our Office of Sustainability, in partnership with our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Council.

As part of this important work, we actively engage with our stakeholders to solicit their feedback and incorporate it into our strategy and culture. We have also conducted a thorough assessment of the ESG issues that are most significant to our company and stakeholders, and are using it to inform our approach as we move forward.

Thank you for your interest in sustainability at Brighthouse Financial. We are proud of the progress we have made and are committed to continually enhancing our sustainability program. We believe that our focus on sustainability, taking into account the interests of all our stakeholders, will play an important role in creating long-term value, and we look forward to sharing more on our sustainability journey in the future.
