We partner with ZSers, clients, suppliers and communities to address the drivers of health equity, manage our climate impact, maintain data security and privacy and govern our firm with diverse, equitable and inclusive practices. Our priorities are:

Health equity: Reducing health disparities around the world


Data security and privacy: Maintaining the safety, security and privacy of our assets


Diversity, equity and inclusion: Fostering a culture where every ZSer can thrive


Climate impact: Combating the negative effects of climate change


Ethics and transparency: Staying accountable as we make progress

We work to understand and address the social and environmental drivers of health, bringing together stakeholders in healthcare and beyond to tackle inequities.


ZS recently collaborated with the Healthcare Leadership Council and its membership community of major hospital systems, national health plans and global life sciences companies to understand and address barriers to health equity. Read the insights here.

We aim to foster a culture where every ZSer can follow their passions, receives the support they need to succeed, and feels heard and respected. Our goal is to create an environment where every ZSer can thrive and know their impact matters.


We have set concrete objectives across several diversity, equity and inclusion commitments. Our priorities include attracting and retaining more women-identifying ZSers and underrepresented minorities, strengthening bias mitigation and equity strategies and more.

*Gender expansive is an umbrella term for any expression of gender broader than current gender binary identities.

**This number reflects underrepresented minorities – Black, Hispanic, Latinx, Native or Indigenous, Pacific Islander and Native Hawaiian ZSers – in the U.S., U.K. and Canada

We operate our firm ethically and with integrity by addressing our climate impact, maintaining data security and privacy, and staying accountable as we make progress.


In 2022, we signed the SBTi Commitment Letter and are on track to file near-term and net zero science-based targets.
