Protection is at our core. Allstate is tackling climate risk in the way we serve and safeguard customers and communities. We are also reducing our footprint. Our work on climate risk is helping us evolve from a traditional insurance company to one that’s responsive to a changing environment and positioned for the future.
At Allstate, we address climate risk through two major areas that impact our customers and business:
We are reducing our carbon footprint.
Across Allstate, we have cut energy use beyond our original targets and reduced our greenhouse gas emissions. A quarter of our fleet of sedans and SUVs has been converted to hybrid vehicles, and we cover 100% of our Northbrook, Illinois, headquarters power with Renewable Energy Certificates.
We focus on disaster prevention, preparedness and risk response.
We advocate for strong building codes and smart land use policies. To help policymakers and the public identify and reduce risk, we participate in and financially support the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety, an independent, nonprofit scientific research group working to build safer and stronger homes and businesses.
We know that addressing climate risk will take ongoing courageous leadership. Our purpose to protect and serve communities and to make a difference in the world will continue to drive the way we take on climate risk.
