Ours to Sustain
American Family Insurance believes it is our responsibility to minimize our environmental impact. We make a concerted effort to use only the resources we need to successfully operate, protecting natural resources for future generations.
We Target Zero Waste
We have dreams, too. We aim to divert 90% of our waste streams away from the landfill. Our consumption and disposal practices have a cumulative impact on the health of the planet. Setting the goal of a Zero Waste Future is the responsible thing to do.
We are Limiting the Amount of Greenhouse Gases Emitted
In 2014, American Family Insurance prevented over 9,900 metric tons of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere, enough to provide electricity to 1,362 homes for a year.
We are Becoming More Efficient in Water Reduction Practices
Since 2011, our national headquarters has reduced annual water usage by seven million gallons per year, enough to fill 11 Olympic-size swimming pools annually.
We Produce Renewable Energy
We offset 47,200 kWh of our energy usage in 2014 with the installation of solar panels on three of our facilities—reducing the use of coal by 18 tons a year.
