Sustainability Governance

UnitedHealth Group has a long-standing commitment to sustainability supported by our senior leaders and Board of Directors.

Our sustainability efforts are overseen by the executive vice president of Corporate Affairs – in partnership with senior leaders across the company – and include engagement with external stakeholders on environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives. The Public Policy Strategies and Responsibility Committee of the Board of Directors is formally charged with overseeing our sustainability strategy and performance. Additional committees of the Board of Directors have responsibility for ESG topics, including the Audit, Compensation and Human Resources, and Nomination and Corporate Governance committees.

Our day-to-day sustainability agenda is overseen by a collaborative collection of leaders across Optum, UnitedHealthcare, Global Operations and Facilities Management, Clinical, Human Capital, Finance, Compliance and Privacy, Legal and Risk Management, Compliance and Regulatory Affairs, and Enterprise Resiliency and Response.
