Francis Hyatt, Liberty Mutual Chief Sustainability Officer, commented: “We believe collaboration is a critical component to combatting climate change. As an insurer we continually see and learn more about climate change, and we’re eager to bring this knowledge to MCSC and help advance the Consortium’s important, urgent work.”

In addition, Liberty Mutual will participate in various workstreams that support MCSC’s key objectives. This includes, to accelerate the introduction of large-scale, feasible solutions to address the threat of climate change, and to advance proposals regarding sustainability opportunities, training for innovators, regulatory policies, and the development of business models across sectors.

The other workstreams include, catalysing links between academic innovations and commercial scalability, and materializing sustainable practices that are action-oriented and incorporate social justice, economic equity, and respect for the environment.
