Environmental Stewardship

The Hartford Takes Environmental Responsibility Seriously

As an insurance company, The Hartford understands the risks that environmental challenges present to people and communities. As stewards of the environment, we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment and conserving natural resources in the face of climate change, while reducing our operating costs in the process.
We recognize that the combination of consumer demand, legislative and regulatory activity and technological advancement may create substantial opportunities to promote environmentally responsible activity when aligned with our business strategy. We advocate strongly for better land use planning, improved building codes with more rigid enforcement, and policies that protect Americans who live in areas vulnerable to severe weather.
The Hartford also continues to develop products and make investment decisions that promote environmentally responsible activity.
