1 Additional financial performance data can be found in our 2018 Annual Report.
2 Figure is inclusive of Cigna Foundation and Civic Affairs contributions inclusive of expenses, corporate contributions from business units, employee giving and the estimated value of employee volunteer hours. The increase in 2017-2018 giving totals is due in part to the inclusion of contributions from our company’s foundation in Korea.
3 The boundary for employee data includes Cigna’s global workforce.
4 2018 workforce data is as of December 20, 2018, and precedes our combination with Express Scripts Holdings. Post-combination, Cigna now has approximately 74,000 employees.
5 Please note the following: (1) Cigna also utilizes independent contractors, such as informational technology providers, who are not included in the employee count; (2) employees who did not identify a gender and/or age are included in total employee count but reported in percentage of employees by gender and age group; and (3) the total number of employees has been rounded.
6 We also provide gender-based reporting for United States employees in the Diversity & Inclusion section of our Corporate Responsibility Report. The figures reported in this Performance Table represent our global workforce.
7 Reported average hours of training for employees are estimates derived from data for each career band for Cigna based on our Cigna University course training. Reported averages in 2017-2018 has increased to include specific skills training, career development, business-led learning and higher education training.
8 Safety incident rate is based on the number of U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable incidents per 200,000 hours worked. Fluctuations in these incident rates are typical year to year.
9 Environmental performance data excludes our non-U.S. real estate portfolio. Based on square footage and activity, these emissions are estimated to comprise less than 10% of our total Scope 1 and 2 emissions.
10 Business travel emissions include flights, trains, rental cars and hotel nights as provided by Cigna’s travel vendor.
11 The number of Cigna’s properties increased from 2017 to 2018 (7% increase in square footage), resulting in an increase in energy usage. These newly added properties are being integrated under Cigna’s environmental initiatives, and are expected to reduce their energy consumption in upcoming years. Additionally, Cigna extrapolates a conservative estimation for properties with unavailable billing information, and a greater number of properties were extrapolated in 2018 (13.2% of total emissions vs. 6.2% of total emissions in 2017).
12 Direct energy consumption sources include those from natural gas and our vehicle and aviation fleet.
13 Source for water withdrawals is exclusively municipal water. Data has been extrapolated for some properties, and data coverage is limited to a portion of our United States real estate portfolio.
Disclaimer: The report covers calendar year 2018 and unless otherwise noted, excludes the combination with Express Scripts, which closed on December 20, 2018.
