The three pillars of our Prescription for a Better World provide the framework for CVS Health’s social responsibility initiatives.
Through Health in Action, we donated more than $90 million in charitable contributions, colleague volunteerism, gifts in-kind, and other community investments in 2016. The CVS Health Foundation and American Cancer Society awarded grants to 20 U.S. colleges and universities in 2016 as part of our Tobacco-Free Generation Campus Initiative. This $3.6 million multiyear program will help accelerate and expand the implementation of 100 percent smoke- and tobacco-free campus policies. Turning to Planet in Balance, we announced this past year that we are working toward setting a science-based emission-reduction target focused on reducing emissions across our supply chain. As a Leader in Growth, we’ve formed the GREENTEAM Colleague Resource Group with the goal of making environmental sustainability a relevant part of every colleague’s role and responsibility. The link between human health and the health of our planet is becoming increasingly apparent, and the GREENTEAM inspires our colleagues to advance our leadership in this area.
