MetLife Unveils Innovative Electric Car Charging Program for Its Employees at 14 U.S. Campuses

Company Joins Federal Effort to Increase Use of Electric Cars Helping to Provide a More Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Workplace

NEW YORK —

MetLife, Inc. (NYSE: MET), an official partner of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Workplace Charging Challenge, has installed innovative electric car charging stations at company offices for employees to power up their plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) during the workday.

According to the Electric Drive Transportation Association (EDTA)*, through June of this year cumulative U.S. plug-in vehicle sales have more than tripled to 110,000 cars versus just a year ago. Understanding the need for PEVs and the importance of a sustainable future, MetLife is firmly committed to the national effort to promote alternative transportation. With 32 charging stations, also known as Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE), at 14 U.S. facilities across 10 states, MetLife currently has the most wide-spread workplace charging program of any non-PEV industry company currently participating in the Workplace Charging Challenge.**

“MetLife has a broad and deep commitment to sustainable business practices,” said Joseph Sprouls, Senior Vice President, Global Corporate Services for MetLife. “Not only are we putting a stake in the ground through this innovative, green initiative, but we’re also encouraging our employees to do the same by giving them the alternative mode of transportation for their commute to work.”
