UnitedHealth Group Sets 2035 Goal

UnitedHealth Group plans to achieve operational net-zero emissions by 2035, a 60% reduction in Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2030, invest and source 100% of electricity demand with renewable sources by 2030 and commit to setting net-zero science-based emission reduction targets through the Science Based Targets initiative Net Zero Standard.

The company’s newly released 2021 Sustainability Report also expands UnitedHealth Group’s reporting of sustainability performance by aligning disclosures to the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB). 

“This year’s report demonstrates how UnitedHealth Group is helping to improve the lives of the people and communities we serve through the work carried out each day by our 350,000 team members,” said Patricia L. Lewis, executive vice president and chief sustainability officer, UnitedHealth Group in a statement. “As a leading health care organization, we recognize there is more work to be done. We continue to prioritize our responsibility to help advance sustainability efforts through community partnerships and systemwide collaboration — working together to ensure everyone has the opportunity to be healthy.”
