Managing our environmental footprint is the right thing to do for the well-being of our stakeholders, communities and long-term viability as a business.
We work to limit our impact on the environment through reductions in energy, water, waste and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
In an effort to protect our planet, we continue to build on the commitment of Canada Life’s parent company, Great-West LifecoOpens a new website in a new window, to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions for their operations well before 2050, and by 2050 for financed emissions. As a global financial institution, we understand that our largest opportunity to address climate change stems from the activities we enable through our loans, investments and insurance underwriting.
In the past year, we also continue to expand our offering of sustainable funds to allow customers to invest in ways that drive positive change.
Learn more about the efforts to limit our impact on the environment in our 2022 Public Accountability Statement.
