How we conduct business | Liberty Specialty Markets

Responsible business

In today’s world of increasing global economic uncertainty and societal disruptions, we believe that a responsible approach to business is critical to success.  We are committed to continuously and consciously evolving our responsible business agenda to make LSM a more inclusive and more responsible business, and to sustain our market differentiation.

As part of the Liberty Mutual Insurance Group, we are uniquely positioned to support our clients in an unpredictable world. In doing so, we hold ourselves accountable to the principles and standards embodied in our core values, Code of Business Ethics and Conduct, and global policies and procedures. 

We demonstrate our commitment to operating our business responsibly through our policies and initiatives relating to our people (Employee Wellbeing, Diversity and Inclusion, CSR), our customers (Customer Outcomes), our operations (Responsible Underwriting, Responsible Procurement, Tax Strategy, Investments) and the environment (Sustainability, Climate Change).

Aligned with the global initiative being led by Liberty Mutual’s Chief Sustainability Officer, we will continue to develop and evolve our responsible business strategy.
