Newsweek has honored Verisk with multiple awards, celebrating the company’s commitment to the environment and its workforce. Verisk was named by Newsweek as one of “America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity 2024” for its dedicated efforts in recruiting and advancing employees of various ages, races, genders, sexual orientation and abilities. Additionally, the company was honored on Newsweek’s inaugural list of “America’s Greatest Workplaces for Mental Wellbeing 2024” for its programming in support of positive mental wellness in the workplace. This includes introducing two well-being days across the global organization.

Lastly, Newsweek named Verisk as one of “America’s Greenest Companies 2024,” which evaluated companies based on their greenhouse gas emissions, water usage, waste generation and commitment and disclosures. Highlighting the company’s environmental stewardship, in 2023 Verisk published its first-ever report in accordance with the framework recommended by the Task Force on Climate related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). The company also proudly reported lower Scope 1 and 2 emissions last year, which were calculated in conjunction with Verisk’s annual greenhouse gas inventory and response to CDP’s 2023 Climate Change Questionnaire. CDP is a non-profit organization that hosts a global disclosure system for investors, companies and other key stakeholders to report and manage their environmental impacts.

“As a partner to the insurance industry in modeling the potential impact of climate change on extreme weather events, we take our responsibility to minimize our environmental impact seriously,” said Lee Shavel, president and CEO of Verisk. “It is part of our ongoing commitment to build global resilience by working with the insurance industry and through the expertise of our colleagues. We are proud to have Newsweek acknowledge our sustainability efforts and commitment to prioritizing inclusivity and wellness in the workplace.”
