Bupa releases 2022 Modern Slavery Statement
Bupa’s purpose is to help people live longer, healthier, happier lives and make a better world. This purpose underpins everything we do, guiding our decision making, business operations and stakeholder relationships, including our commitment to uphold human rights in our business and its supply chain.
To deliver health and care to our 4.5 million health insurance and 2.7 million health provision customers, our Australian workforce of over 16,000 people is supported by thousands of suppliers from across Australia and New Zealand, as well as a smaller number from overseas. We know that it is vital we remain vigilant to modern slavery risks within our supply chain, as well as within our direct operations, and are committed to working alongside the Australian government, the healthcare sector and the wider community to mitigate and address these risks.
In accordance with Australia’s Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth), this statement reports on Bupa Australia’s approach to identifying and addressing modern slavery risks across our operations and supply chain in 2022. It outlines the way our business is structured, how we interact with suppliers, and summarises the work we have undertaken over the course of the 2022 reporting period to assess and manage modern slavery risks.
Bupa’s global ambition is to become the world’s most customer-centric healthcare company. As we strive to take a leading role in improving the way healthcare is delivered for the benefit of current and future customers, we acknowledge that to do so involves protecting the rights, freedoms and health of everyone who contributes to that ambition.
