Report Highlights Centene's Commitment to Advancing Sustainability and DEI


Cover of the 2023 Sustainability & DEI Report

Sustainability and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) are core to Centene and how we deliver on our mission to transform the health of the communities we serve, one person at a time. Focusing on social impact that drives health equity and fosters environmental resilience supports our goal of delivering high-quality healthcare to those who need it most.

Centene continually assesses its progress in the areas of DEI and health, social and environmental impact, and adapts according to the evolving needs of our members and communities. We integrate principles of corporate responsibility, DEI and strong governance into every facet of our operations because we know that investments made today will deliver benefits for years to come.

In support of this commitment, Centene is pleased to share our 2023 Sustainability and DEI Report: Healthy Futures, Diverse Horizons (PDF), which highlights our work to make a positive, measurable and sustainable impact on society, the environment and, most importantly, our members’ health outcomes.

The report showcases our updated sustainability framework, which is structured around four pillars that support our mission:

  1.  Empowering Health
  2. Building Healthier Communities
  3. Fostering a Healthy Environment
  4. Driving Business Accountability

Additionally, the report examines our DEI strategic framework, now realigned to focus on three core areas:

  1. Our People
  2. Our Business
  3. Our Communities

These frameworks, as well as the partnerships, programs and investments detailed throughout the report, enable us to understand and address barriers to health access by creating and implementing innovative ways to meet members where they are to help them on the journey to better health.

As we reflect on our 2023 results, we will continue to identify opportunities to further enhance our operational performance, build upon our partnerships and drive innovation for healthy futures for our members and their communities.
