Thinking globally and acting locally
As a health care leader, we believe that our corporate responsibility starts with helping people live healthier lives. And that means using our resources to make the communities and world we live in better places.
People in low-income and minority communities often don't get the health care they need. We want to help change that through the work of the Aetna Foundation. Since 1980, the Aetna Foundation has awarded more than $445 million to promote wellness, health and access to high-quality health care.
We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint. Recycling programs, reducing energy use and using sustainable building practices are part of our robust efforts to create a healthier environment.
We support national health initiatives that make a difference in people’s lives, such as fighting heart disease and improving the mental health of our veterans.
Aetna strives to provide a safe, healthy work environment. Our safety program – developed and managed by Aetna’s Safety & Environmental Unit (S&E) – addresses health and safety hazards commonly associated with our facilities, processes and activities.
New employees are introduced to the Aetna Safety Handbook during orientation. The handbook is available online, and employees are encouraged to review it thoroughly before their job activities begin.
