Our Environmental, Social and Governance Commitments: Progress in Our Purpose-Driven Journey

As we build a more successful and sustainable future, our ESG strategy helps us make better-informed decisions that consider broader societal issues affecting our employees, clients, customers, investors and communities.

We are holding ourselves accountable as we fortify our strengths and enhance the company’s long-term performance. As the global market, consumer needs, expectations and ESG standards continue to evolve, Assurant will further integrate ESG considerations into our products and services, operations, risk management, investments and disclosures.

ESG 2021-2025 Priorities

As part of our long-term strategic planning process, we prioritized three ESG areas of strategic focus: Talent, Products and Climate.


We aspire to foster a diverse, equitable and inclusive culture to drive sustainable innovation for the benefit of all stakeholders. We drive innovation by ensuring that our workforce reflects the diversity and inclusivity of our consumers and the communities we serve. We will continue to adapt and evolve new ways of working to strengthen our global bench of talent and commit to fair, equitable pay and benefits for our employees. And we support communities and the greater good through grants, volunteer activation and engagement.


We aspire to help customers thrive in the Connected World. We leverage insights and technology to accelerate the introduction of offerings that add customer value and make a positive impact on society. And we’ll continue to help consumers understand and invest in digital protection products and services to enhance access and ease of use through seamless support.


We aspire to operate in ways that minimize our carbon footprint and enhance sustainability. We work to strengthen climate resiliency, extend and enhance product life cycles, and identify vulnerabilities through robust risk management as we measure impact and enhance the products and services we offer. We're improving energy efficiency in our owned facilities and have begun the work to enable a more hybrid work model to support our business and talent strategy. We expect this will result in a larger portion of our employees working remote and reducing our footprint where appropriate. We’re developing an environmental management infrastructure to track and report Scopes 1, 2 and 3 emissions globally. And we’re integrating our environmental commitments with our investment portfolio through oversight by the Assurant Investment Committee.
