Healthcare is a central component of our measure of Humankind Value, as a large contribution to modern life expectancies has come from the last 150 years of medical innovation. AmerisourceBergen Corp. operates in a manner that is a net positive for humanity, primarily due to Economic Value ($16.2 B), Healthcare R&D ($15.0 B), and Pharmaceuticals ($7.1 B). Positive value from Healthcare R&D and Pharmaceuticals is linked to an estimate of 459,208.4 additional years lived by people worldwide. It produces economic value by offering to consumers goods and services that they value, paying employees for their labor in producing these goods and services, and providing value for shareholders. However, there is room for improvement with respect to Opioid Abuse (-$1.9 B) and Workplace Injuries (-$460.7 M). Economic Value and Workplace Injuries are attached to this company as a result of its direct business activities. Healthcare R&D, Pharmaceuticals, and Opioid Abuse are largely consequences of the actions of supply chain partners. While this company has a positive Humankind Value when studied in isolation, consideration of supply chain interactions pushes its Humankind Value higher.

How the Humankind Value Methodology Drives the Rankings

We take a quantitative, data-driven approach to estimating the economic impact that companies have on investors, customers, employees, and society at large, rolling social responsibility into a single dollar value that we use to represent what a company is contributing to humanity. As far as we can tell, we're the first ones doing it this way.
