Just as we strive to be good stewards of our business, we also strive to be good stewards of our planet. The Aflac SmartGreen® philosophy outlines our corporate commitment to wisely choosing, using and disposing of the resources we use each day. Although our corporate environmental impact is minimal due to the nature of our business, we’re always looking for innovative ways to reduce that impact.
As a large, publicly traded company, Aflac recognizes its corporate social responsibility for leading the way in eco-friendly business initiatives. From the materials we use in our daily operations to the construction and renovation of our facilities, we carefully consider the impact our actions will have — not only today, but in the years to come.
The Aflac board of directors issued the following statement about our commitment to environmental health and conservation:
"As the market leader in the supplemental insurance industry, Aflac is committed to making business decisions that balance the needs of our many constituencies, including our policyholders, employees, sales force and shareholders, while recognizing the obligation we have to the global community. Aflac is dedicated to the health and well-being of the people we serve and also to the health and well-being of the environment. As such, we strive to balance effective and efficient management of our operations with responsible environmental stewardship."
