There is a clear connection between human health, healthcare and the health of the planet. Climate change, pollution, waste, biodiversity loss and habitat degradation pose huge challenges both for people and planetary health. But also, the impact of healthcare on the environment is well established: healthcare's climate footprint is 4.4% of the global total; meaning if it were a country, it would be the fifth largest emitter on the planet.
As a healthcare company not only do we have an important role to play but we also have a responsibility to act now.
Bupa is looking for start-ups with innovative projects in order to support them to develop successful businesses to improve people's health and the health of the planet. Bupa’s goal is to find and support sustainable, scalable start-ups where Bupa can add value to their business or solution.
eco-Disruptive is a clear signal of our intent to start a movement for sustainable innovation, harnessing the energy and passion of our people, bringing new thinking and collaborating to help us accelerate our sustainability agenda. It symbolises our commitment to Bupa’s purpose: helping people live longer, healthier, happier lives and making a better world.
Change starts right here, with Bupa.
