New York Life Insurance Company (New York Life) does not appear to have significantly engaged with sustainable finance policies. There is evidence of some sustainable finance policy monitoring by its investment management arm, New York Life Investments, but no clear position taking or engagement activity has been found.

New York Life’s Environmental Sustainability Statement states that the company is collaborating with its business partners on “climate action” but level of ambition for this action is unclear. A 2021 insights paper from New York Life Investments appears to support urgent action to tackle climate change. In March 2021, New York Life Investments released a tweet that discussed upcoming climate-related financial regulation in the US, but did not take a clear position on the need for this regulation.

In that tweet, New York Life Investments described steps taken by the Federal Reserve and the SEC on mandatory corporate climate disclosures, but did not outline a clear policy position. It also mentioned a US Treasury suggestion about incorporating climate risk into its supervisory stress testing, but did not take a position on this potential policy. A New York Life Investments insights paper from 2021 mentions meeting with regulators to understand efforts to incorporate ESG into their operations, including bank stress testing, but does not outline a position.

New York Life does not appear to have disclosed information about any sustainable finance policies it is tracking or any efforts to influence policies. Its investment management subsidiary, New York Life Investments, has mentioned some policies it is tracking but has not taken clear positions on these policies or detailed any engagement with policymakers and regulators. New York Life has not disclosed its membership to any industry associations despite being a member of the American Council of Life Insurers and the Institute of International Finance, among others.

How to Read our Relationship Score Map

Each of the columns above represents one relationship the corporation appears to have with such a third party. In these columns, the top, dark section represents the strength of the relationship the corporation has with the influencer. For example if a corporation's senior executive also held a key role in the trade association, we would deem this to be a strong relationship and it would be on the far left of the chart above, with the weaker ones to the right. Click on these grey shaded upper sections for details of these relationships. The middle section contains a link to the organization score details of the influencer concerned, so you can see the details of its climate change policy influence.
