Our vision

UnitedHealth Group is committed to advancing responsible environmental and social sustainability practices across our supply chain. Our sustainability focus is evident in our interconnected and urgent objectives. These objectives include advancing health equity, improving access to affordable, high-quality medical care and addressing climate change. Details on our sustainability priorities and progress can be found at sustainability.uhg.com.

Our Sustainable Procurement program aims to achieve these objectives by partnering with our suppliers to minimize risk and strengthen the resilience of our supply chain, promote human rights, improve environmental health and accelerate our path to net-zero. Our program supports the economic development of underserved communities by ensuring diversity is an integral component of our supply chain. Our approach reflects our uncompromising commitment to integrity and our suppliers are expected to comply with all applicable laws and regulations while operating under the highest ethical standards.

Together we can utilize our shared reach, resources and resolve to achieve these important objectives and work toward the realization of our mission to help people live healthier lives and help make the health system work better for everyone.


Our expectations

UnitedHealth Group’s Supplier Compliance program webpage provides education and resources for our suppliers related to our compliance policies and procedures – including our Supplier Code of Conduct (the “Code”). The Code sets forth the base expectations and requirements for all suppliers doing business with UnitedHealth Group, which includes our supplier environmental, social and governance (ESG) expectations. The Code is incorporated by reference in our standard supplier contracts with additional ESG-related requirements set forth in supplier contracts where appropriate.


Our approach

"Our purpose-driven approach to supply chain management leverages the expertise of supply partners to help deliver extraordinary results to our customers while improving environmental and social outcomes in the communities we serve."
