In July 2022, Simplyhealth became the UK’s first health insurer to achieve B Corp certification. In doing so, it joined nearly 1,000 pioneering UK companies that are leading a global movement to shift the purpose and image of business. As a purpose-led organisation striving to ‘improve access to healthcare for all in the UK’, Simplyhealth is already inspiring others. It is modelling both the behaviours and the governance structures that it and others believe require widespread global adoption, so all businesses can be a force for good.
In its 150th year, Simplyhealth is celebrating its heritage with its 2.3 million customers, while firmly looking to the future. One year into the delivery of an ambitious new business strategy, Simplyhealth is refreshing its ESG strategy for a post-COVID world and challenging itself to go further on commitments for the future, such as its path to Net Zero. This webinar covers key elements of Simplyhealth’s ESG journey to date, including B Corp certification and how it has, and will continue to use its purpose to hold itself to the highest impact standards in healthcare.
