Environmental Stewardship

Our expertise in identifying and managing risk, the manner in which we conduct our business, and the solutions we provide to our customers are helping protect the environment.


Underwriting Management
Chubb monitors changing weather patterns and their potential effect on the frequency and severity of natural catastrophes, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and wildfires.  We also evaluate how certain demographic and societal shifts, such as migrations to coastal communities, increase exposure to climate-related risk. By better understanding these emerging risks, we are able to manage our business, appropriately price our products, and create new products and services to help our customers mitigate potential exposures.

Personal and Commercial Product and Service Offerings
We provide specialized coverages and loss prevention services to clean tech companies involved in renewable energy, technology R&D and manufacturing. Our Customarq Classic policy helps restore green commercial buildings and our Masterpiece® GreenWise® Upgrade endorsement helps homeowners rebuild with green materials after a covered loss. In providing a variety of environmental liability solutions, our loss prevention specialists recommend a variety of actions that companies can take to help prevent pollutants from being released into the air and waterways and onto the land.

Office Space and Equipment Management
Chubb continues to seek ways to increase the energy efficiency of its office space. Since 2006, we have saved almost one million kilowatt hours of electricity and 45,000 CCFs of natural gas as a result of various energy reduction projects. Overall, these efforts represent a 6.5% decrease in Scope 1 emissions and a 23.4% decrease in Scope 2 since 2008. As we renovate or relocate our offices around the globe, we seek additional ways to reduce our environmental footprint. Learn more.
