AIG provides a wide range of property casualty insurance, life insurance, retirement solutions, and other financial services

AIG believes that commitment to sustainability helps future-proof communities by addressing societal and environmental factors, while enabling economic progress. Building on AIG’s expertise and capabilities in managing risks of many kinds, it can facilitate, design and drive innovative solutions to help clients and partners adapt to its changing world. Its four sustainability priorities align with the core business strategy and include community resilience, financial security, sustainable investing and sustainable operations. 

AIG recognizes the impact of climate change on its business and global communities and is committed to playing a role in addressing these challenges. AIG also acknowledges that climate change is a complex issue and that the world cannot currently meet its energy needs through purely green technologies. 

AIG is well positioned to leverage its global risk and industry expertise to help mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and navigate climate change risks and opportunities in its engagement with clients, policyholders and other stakeholders.

AIG onset

In 1919, Cornelius Vander Starr stepped off a steamship in Shanghai determined to make his mark in the world. Working from a two-room office, he established American Asiatic Underwriters, an insurance agency to which the firm trace its roots. Starr believed in making the world a better place and with other early company pioneers, his organization grew across the world.

Today, AIG is a global insurance company with operations in more than 80 countries and jurisdictions. AIG provides a range of insurance products to support its clients in business and in life, including: general property/casualty, life insurance, and retirement and financial services through its General Insurance, Life and Retirement and Investments business units. AIG says, “What unites us across all of these products is our commitment to helping our clients prepare for what’s next. Whether that’s helping cities and communities to prepare for and recover from natural disasters or providing a financially secure retirement for millions of Americans, we have the specialist expertise to help clients better manage risk.”

Philosophy AIG sticks to

No two risks are the same. Each risk is unique and different industries and businesses have different risk appetites. The role of insurance in risk mitigation and underwriting is an opportunity to apply its technical expertise to help manage today’s risks while supporting solutions to pressing societal problems. No two investments are the same. Each investment opportunity presents unique risks and rewards that AIG carefully analyze.

Given the complexity of these issues, AIG does not publicly comment on underwriting decisions related to specific projects or specific investments. AIG is committed to promoting economic growth and sustainable solutions that benefit society today and for future generations.

A small message from AIG’s Chief Sustainable Officer

"At AIG we celebrate the opportunities to build a more sustainable world and recognize the seriousness of the climate risk that we all face. AIG is committed to our sustainability agenda, which focuses on future-proofing communities through community resilience, financial security, sustainable operations and sustainable investing."

- Jennifer Waldner Grant

Sustainability Governance

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.

The Sustainability Office is responsible for driving cooperation and alignment among these working groups.
