Amwell underscores commitment to driving positive impact with environmental, social and governance framework

Amwell®, (NYSE: AMWL) a digital care delivery leader, announced the release of its inaugural Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) Framework. The Framework provides insight into the Company’s business, across three key areas: people, products, and operations, as viewed through an ESG lens.

“ESG is fundamental to the Amwell mission to connect and enable healthcare organizations to deliver greater access to more affordable, higher quality care. This mission and our values are core to who we are and serve as the foundation on which we strive to build a sustainable growth business and promote the long-term interests of our clients and stakeholders,” said Dr. Ido Schoenberg, Chairman and CEO, Amwell.

The Amwell ESG Framework showcases Amwell in the context of environmental, governance and social topics, highlighting the Company’s dedication to quality, innovation, diversity, integrity, equity, wellbeing, ethical business practices, data privacy and enterprise risk management. The Amwell approach to ESG is defined by three pillars:

  • People – Embodying all aspects of the Amwell One Team culture, Amwell prioritizes talent development & engagement, mental & physical wellbeing, diversity & inclusion, and community service in its hiring, total rewards, and employee experience.
  • Products – Embodying all aspects of the Amwell Customer First commitment, Amwell focuses on supporting and enabling the key stakeholders in healthcare to achieve their digital care delivery ambitions, while improving clinical and financial outcomes and enhancing the care experience for patients, members and clinicians with its enterprise, digital care delivery enablement platform Converge™.
  • Operations – Embodying all aspects of the Amwell Deliver Awesome approach, the foundation of the Amwell business is built on high ethical standards and strong governance with a deep commitment to keeping customers’ and employees’ data and systems safe through robust cybersecurity and data privacy protocols.
