Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), one of the nation’s leading health and well-being companies, today released a new report on how the organization is achieving its goals and leading the way as a health provider, as a steward of the environment and as an impactful corporate citizen.
The 2014-2015 Humana Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report (humanacsrreport.com) covers the progress the company made during those two years on initiatives and commitments made to improve the health of its members, associates, overall business and the environment. This is the fourth time since 2009 Humana has published a CSR Report, and the company’s third report to meet Global Reporting Initiative standards.
“Humana’s corporate social responsibility approach is driven by our commitment to helping people achieve lifelong health and well-being. We want to make the communities we serve healthier by making our associates – employees – healthier; providing our members with support in their health journeys; partnering with community leaders to decrease barriers to health; and decreasing our environmental footprint,” said Bruce D. Broussard, Humana’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “This latest report outlines the progress we’ve made, as well as where we’re headed.”
Humana’s CSR Report is organized into three focus areas: Healthy People, Healthy Planet, and Healthy Performance.
The Healthy People section details Humana’s efforts to improve the health of its members, as well as its associates and the communities in which it operates. A major part of this effort is Humana’s Bold Goal to improve the health of the communities it serves 20 percent by 2020. This goal has prompted Humana to launch major community health initiatives around the country.
Community health is also linked to environmental health. Poor air quality, polluted water, and natural disasters can all negatively affect people’s health.
The Healthy Planet section details Humana’s commitment to a responsible, sustainable relationship with the environment and announces the company’s progress toward its environmental goals.
The backbone of Humana’s CSR strategy – and its business – is Healthy Performance, which is Humana’s commitment to excellence in business standards and practices. Humana is dedicated to implementing best practices in the health care industry in a variety of ways, such as promoting diversity and inclusion in its workforce and holding its suppliers to high standards.
