We believe a commitment to sustainability helps future-proof communities by addressing societal and environmental factors, while enabling economic progress. Building on our expertise and capabilities in managing risks of many kinds, we can facilitate, design and drive innovative solutions to help clients and partners adapt to our changing world. Our four sustainability priorities align with our core business strategy and include community resilience, financial security, sustainable investing and sustainable operations.
Developing a robust governance framework and maintaining transparency with our stakeholders are important components of AIG's continued commitment to sustainability. To demonstrate our commitment, in 2019, we announced the appointment of our first Chief Sustainability Officer, to lead the development and implementation of a company-wide sustainability strategy, including our climate strategy.
To drive integration and advancement of sustainability and climate initiatives into all lines of business, cross-functional teams and working groups have been established. These consist of representatives from the Sustainability Office and every major business unit and functional area. Each working group is sponsored by a member of AIG’s Executive Leadership Team to cascade the tone at the top throughout the entire organization. The Sustainability Office is responsible for driving cooperation and alignment among these working groups.
