CVS Health Corp. operates in a manner that is a net positive for humanity. This outcome is largely driven by Economic Value ($31.5 B), Pharmaceuticals ($15.4 B), and Healthcare R&D ($12.2 B). Many essential goods such as food, water, and cleaning products are purchased in markets. Large consumer-facing companies that offer a variety of products while eschewing revenue from tobacco can be responsible for a net-positive impact. CVS also 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. Positive value from Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare R&D contains our estimation of 571,331.1 additional years lived by people worldwide. However, it has room for improvement with respect to Opioid Abuse (-$1.1 B). Economic Value is attached to this company as a result of its direct business activities. Pharmaceuticals, Healthcare R&D, and Opioid Abuse are mostly or entirely a result of supply-chain relationships. For this firm, supply chain partners increase an already positive Humankind Value.

As far as we can tell, we're the first ones doing it this way.
