ICMIF member Securian Financial (USA) has this week announced that it has signed the Accounting for Sustainability (A4S) Net Zero Statement of Support — joining 46 organisations worldwide in committing to publish a detailed pathway to net zero emissions. The company says it expects to publish a plan on its website in early 2021.
Securian Financial is a founding member of the US chapter of A4S, a project established by the Prince of Wales to inspire finance leaders to shift toward sustainable business models. A4S is one of ICMIF’s global partner organisations.
Executive Vice President and CFO, Warren Zaccaro, signed the statement on Securian Financial’s behalf. “All companies across all industries can address sustainability and contribute to a healthy environment,” he said. “We are honoured to join forces with other companies to achieve a net zero emissions economy and limit the negative impacts of climate change.”
This new commitment is one of several proactive steps Securian Financial says it is taking to secure a more sustainable future. Other initiatives include continuing to optimise its buildings for energy efficiency, expanding the company’s transit benefit for employees and transitioning to an organics recycling programme.
More information on Securian Financial’s contributions to a healthy environment is available in the company’s 2019 Community Impact Report.
