Aetna's Sustainability Policy Statement


“As a health care company, we believe nothing is more important than helping people stay healthy. Aetna’s business strategy includes promoting sustainable practices nationally and internationally in furtherance of the health of our members, employees and communities in which we operate.

We are committed to limiting our own environmental impact by reducing our energy consumption, conserving environmental resources, and adopting a sustainable approach to the management and maintenance of all real estate and business processes wherever possible. We also are committed to addressing the waste that accounts for one-third of all health care costs and threatens the long-term sustainability of our health care system. To that end, we will continue to work with health care professionals to further the development and availability of quality-focused, accountable care.

Using a collaborative, multi-faceted approach, we are helping to develop a healthier population with a broader sense of responsibility toward the use of health care resources and with a shared sense of commitment to nurturing a healthy environment."
