As the leader in government-sponsored healthcare, we work with the nation’s most vulnerable populations, helping them access high-quality care.

Therefore, we uniquely understand that our members and their families often experience the most harmful impacts of climate change and environmental occurrences. That is why our focus on environmental performance is a large part of our day-to-day business operations. From the energy-efficient buildings that house our operations, to our enterprise-wide recycling initiatives, Centene cares about protecting our planet and environment.

Centene works with community-based organizations and healthcare partners to evaluate local environmental risks on the health of our members. These collaborations also explore actions that we can take to improve outcomes. 

Centene’s work in this space extends to how we address non-medical barriers to health. On issues like housing, Centene has worked with partners like Habitat for Humanity in Georgia and PROSPERA in Texas to provide housing for members that meets environmental review standards for pollution reduction and sustainability.
