UnitedHealth Group is committed to engaging our stakeholders – which include our team members and partner organizations – in our efforts to promote and practice environmental responsibility.
Our culture empowers team members to engage in actions to preserve the environment, conserve natural resources and reduce energy in our business operations. United for the Planet – a team initially formed by employees in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, to identify and implement environmental programs in the workplace – expanded nationwide in 2020 and participation grew nearly eightfold.
The United for the Planet team helped build the framework for location-based landfill diversion goals and provided employee education to help with initiatives such as expanding food and paper towel composting and recycling best practices.
