Humana has released its 2010-2011 corporate social responsibility (CSR) report. It is the first such publication among major U.S. health insurers to use Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines, the world’s most recognized standards for environmental, social and governance reporting.
The report focuses on Humana’s CSR platform – Healthy People, Healthy Planet, Healthy Performance – and introduces the company’s energy-saving targets for 2012. The report also illuminates a range of specific ways Humana is helping people achieve lifelong well-being, including an innovative well-being pilot program in Kentucky and Humana’s partnership with Walmart to make prescription drugs more affordable for Medicare beneficiaries.
“This report marks an important milestone in our CSR journey,” said Humana Chairman and CEO Mike McCallister. “Through this report, we share our efforts and aspirations to further integrate CSR into our business strategy and operations across the U.S.”
The “Well-Being Starts with Us: 2010 & 2011 CSR Report” highlights that Humana:
- Pledges to reduce building energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and annual energy expenses by 10 percent each, over the course of 2012 (from a 2009 baseline)
