ESG Reporting Hub

DaVita values accountability and integrity. Our ESG Reporting Hub contains key reports and resources related to our ESG (environmental, social and governance) and CSR (corporate social responsibility) programs, policies, goals and progress.

ESG at DaVita

ESG Governance Structure: 

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 reports to the Audit Committee on the process for ESG-related public reporting, including reporting controls.

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

ESG Strategy

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. This input helped us to identify our five ESG strategic focus areas and key initiatives within each.

ESG Focus Area:

Patient Care

  • Quality of Care

  • Patient Experience

  • Patient Education

  • Health Equity

Teammate Engagement

  • Diversity & Belonging

  • Teammate Development

  • The DaVita Way

Our 2025 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.
