Taking climate action

Our goals for taking action on climate change.

Aviva’s demanding climate goals

To create a better tomorrow, we need to look after the planet we call home.  The climate crisis is a threat to life on this planet. If we are going to prevent the most catastrophic impacts, it’s going to take bold actions and real leadership by every sector of the economy. 

Our plan to be a Net Zero company by 2040* is the most demanding set by any major insurance company in the world today.  As part of this, we have set the target to be Net Zero in our own operations and supply chain, and to have cut the carbon intensity of our investments, all by 2030.

In 2020 Aviva has invested £11.7 billion in green assets. This includes £7.2 billion in low-carbon infrastructure, such as wind farms and solar panels, £3.2 billion in green and sustainable bonds and £1.3 billion in specific climate funds.
