Chubb supports a wide range of environmental philanthropies in local communities around the world.
Through these initiatives, Chubb promotes a healthy and sustainable planet, strengthens the resilience of communities and protects biodiversity against the effects of climate change.
Conservation Action Fund of Rainforest Trust
Chubb supports the Conservation Action Fund of Rainforest Trust, a global conservation organization that purchases and protects the most threatened tropical forests, saving endangered wildlife through partnerships and community engagement. The Conservation Action Fund focuses on urgent conservation initiatives to protect critical habitats that would otherwise be used for development, agriculture or natural resource extraction. Funds have been directed to expanded land protection of the Papagaios de Altitude Reserve in the Atlantic Rainforest of Brazil and of a critical portion of the Leuser Ecosystem on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. The preservation of these two critical areas will prevent the release of more than 350,000 metric tons of stored carbon, mitigating the effects of carbon emissions on the climate.
The Nature Conservancy
Chubb has supported The Nature Conservancy (TNC) in various conservation projects globally for nearly a decade. Chubb supports the Resilience Project in Miami-Dade County, which aims to make a compelling case for increased investment of public and private dollars to finance mangrove restoration and produce a foundation upon which to dramatically reduce flood damages in the face of rising seas and more severe storms. TNC is partnering with the City of Miami to map out the project within local guidelines and is building out a strategic communications campaign to share the progress and outcomes of the pilot project and inform the broader context of nature-based resilience solutions.
Chubb recognizes that mitigating the growing threat of climate change requires action from government, the private sector and society-at-large. Through Chubb’s collaboration with The Nature Conservancy, we can help make a difference not only in this resilience project with the City of Miami, but gain practically tested insights that can be replicated around the world in other coastal cities vulnerable to climate change.

The Conservation Fund
Since 2005, Chubb has supported The Conservation Fund, which has protected more than 8 million acres across the U.S. In recent years, the Chubb Charitable Foundation provided more than $1 million to The Conservation Fund initiatives that have protected nearly 370,000 acres of threatened lands and waters. Chubb’s support allows the Fund to protect top-priority conservation lands through the Chubb Land Legacy Revolving Fund, which has protected habitats valued at more than $228.5 million.
Since 2008, Chubb has supported American Forests, the oldest national nonprofit conservation organization in the U.S., which has a mission to protect and restore threatened forest ecosystems. Chubb’s Environmental Risk business has pledged to plant one tree for every new environmental policy written globally. Since the initial pledge, we’ve planted more than 308,000 trees through American Forests. For 2021, the company sponsored the planting of 33,000 trees in project landscapes that include California, Michigan and Ontario.
The Bermuda National Trust
The Bermuda National Trust plays a leading role in environmental stewardship in Bermuda. Established in 1970, the Trust preserves Bermuda’s natural, architectural and historic treasures and encourages public appreciation of them. In the Trust’s care are 82 properties, covering about 280 acres of land. These properties represent much of the best of Bermuda’s heritage. For more than 20 years, Chubb has supported the Trust with more than $450,000 in grants to aid in their mission of education and preservation.
