Through our Cigna Connects platform, we aim to connect and align our activities with the 17 aspirational global goals and 169 targets set forth in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), a blueprint for governments, businesses, and civil society organizations to address the most pressing environmental and social issues globally.
Among all SDGs, Goal 3 – focusing on “ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being” – provides the greatest opportunity for Cigna to contribute specific industry expertise and resources to drive meaningful progress. This focus was further sharpened by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are also focused on opportunities to support other SDGs that are relevant to our business:
