Humana Recognized On Dow Jones Sustainability Indices For Seventh Consecutive Year

Stocks in this article: HUM

Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) announced today that it has been recognized on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index and the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index for the seventh consecutive year.

Humana was one of only two health-benefits companies selected to the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index this year, reflecting the company’s strong environmental, social and economic performance.

“We are honored to be recognized once again as a leader by the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices,” said Chuck Lambert, Humana’s Vice President of Associate & Business Services. “Our commitment to a healthy planet, healthy people and healthy performance is aligned with our dream to help our associates, members, and communities we serve achieve lifelong well-being.”

The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices identify companies as leaders in sustainability according to objective benchmarks linked to environmental, social and economic performance. Companies must meet rigorous criteria including corporate governance, transparency, environmental and social policies and management, and corporate citizenship and philanthropy. Humana’s internal- and external-facing environmental sustainability efforts coupled with community wellness programs, such as its playground-building partnership with KaBOOM!, are examples of such leadership.

In addition to DJSI, Humana is included in the FTSE4Good Index Series and ranked in the top 100 of the Newsweek Green Rankings.

The first health insurer to publish a Global Reporting Initiative corporate social responsibility (CSR) report, Humana strives toward best-in-class business practices. Other CSR accolades include being named in the top 10 of Military Times EDGE magazine’s “Best Employers for Vets 2013” and as a finalist in the GBCHealth Awards community investment category for our Team Up 4 Health community wellness program.
