Health as we know it is changing.

For over 70 years, Bupa has focused on health. And we now know that everyone’s mental and physical health is connected to the health of our planet. For example, cleaner air means we can breathe easier; less anxiety about the future is better for our mental wellbeing; and the stronger our mental health, the more we can do to protect the environment.

The climate change emergency is a major threat to our own health, as well as the planet’s. The good news is that we can all make healthy and environmentally friendly behaviour changes that last. It’s simple: the more we take care of our planet, the more we can all live longer, healthier and happier lives.

Along with our colleagues, clients and customers, Bupa is on a journey to help make a better world. We’re committed to doing all we can, environmentally and in our communities, to make a positive difference. Whether the impact is felt thousands of miles away or on our own doorstep, we’ll never stop working towards a healthier future for all.

Our purpose

By making the world a healthier place we can help to make people better, too. And we believe change starts right here – at Bupa.

Our key objectives

Working in partnership with One Carbon World™

Since 2019, we’ve been offsetting our carbon emissions so that we’re carbon neutral. Offsetting is done by supporting projects that reduce or remove greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere.

To do this here at Bupa, we work with One Carbon World™, a not-for-profit partner of the UN’s Climate Neutral Now initiative. As part of this, we’re investing in reforestation projects in South America and renewable energy projects in India.
