Key ESG Reports

A focus on ESG is not new to DaVita. For more than 17 years, our Trilogy of Care—Caring for Our Patients, Caring for Each Other and Caring for Our World—has been at the heart of everything we do. More information on our Trilogy of Care and social responsibility efforts can be found on our Community Care site.

ESG at DaVita

We strive to be a community first and a company second, which is underscored by our deep rooted commitment to our ESG practices. Our ESG focus areas include how we care for our patients; how we support our teammates to grow and thrive in a workplace where everyone feels like they belong; and how we engage with our local communities and promote environmental stewardship.

ESG Governance: 

The Nominating and Governance Committee of DaVita’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) oversees DaVita’s activities, policies and programs related to corporate environmental and social responsibility. Our management ESG Steering Committee, comprised of leaders with diverse perspectives from across the business, is responsible for aligning ESG strategy across the company.


Other essential ESG Steering Committee responsibilities include:


  • Providing guidance on strategy and disclosures for ESG initiatives.

  • Reporting to the Nominating and Governance Committee on a regular basis.

  • Providing periodic updates to the Audit Committee on the process for ESG-related public reporting, including reporting controls.

  • Providing an ESG update to the full Board no less than once per year.

ESG Focus Areas and Stakeholder Engagement

In 2021 we conducted a prioritization assessment to identify the economic, environmental, and social issues that are most important to our organization and our stakeholders. We surveyed our teammates, interviewed senior leaders, benchmarked industry peers and leveraged external expertise, including the SASB recommended metrics for health care service providers, which includes investor feedback, to identify our five ESG strategic focus areas and key initiatives within each.

ESG Focus Areas


2025 ESG Goals:

In 2021, we published a series of ESG goals to achieve by 2025, many of which are aspirational, and the hard work it will take to meet them has only begun. While we recognize that it may be difficult to achieve some of these ambitious goals during the timeframe, we believe there is value in striving for them.
