Anthem, Inc.’s reporting on its 2018 sustainability program is in accordance with the Core option of the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Principles. The GRI is an independent international organization that has pioneered sustainability reporting since 1997.
Sustainability reporting helps organizations set goals, measure performance and manage change in order to make their operations more environmentally and socially responsible. At the core of preparing a sustainability report is the process of identifying material aspects—those factors that reflect an organization’s significant economic, environmental and social impacts that substantively influence the assessments and decisions of its stakeholders.
To determine our material aspects, Anthem underwent a thorough assessment process in which we evaluated the company’s effect on its key stakeholders—customers, associates, communities, investors, suppliers and regulators. The assessment included an industry benchmark, surveys with Anthem leaders representing stakeholder groups, and associate focus groups.
This report covers Anthem, Inc.’s operations, including those of subsidiaries, unless stated otherwise.
