Welcome to the 2017 MetLife EcoChallenge

The 2017 MetLife EcoChallenge is your chance to team up with employees from around the world to make small changes that can make a big difference to the health and future of our planet. The MetLife EcoChallenge is a 2-week challenge in which teams of MetLife employees commit to ‘green’ behavior changes in their personal lives, earn points for sharing progress, and discover the measurable impact our everyday actions can have on the environment.

Individuals and teams choose eco-friendly actions from various categories—water, trash, energy, food, transportation, nature, health, simplicity, or community—and stick with these actions throughout the 2-week challenge. EcoChallengers accrue points for engagement (everything from succeeding at your EcoChallenge to engaging teammates in the event earns points). The EcoChallenge allows you to learn the true impact your actions can have on the environment, offers you the chance to compete with colleagues around world, and gives you the opportunity to be a leader in MetLife’s environmental stewardship efforts.
