Our commitment

For us, sustainability means acting responsibly to achieve business success as well as medical, environmental and social progress.

Global sustainability governance

Responsibility for our sustainability efforts lies with the Sustainability Decision Board, Fresenius Medical Care’s highest decision-making body for sustainable development, which is headed by the Chief Executive Officer. Sustainability-related results and progress are presented on a regular basis to the Management Board and the Supervisory Board.

We have implemented a global sustainability governance structure at Fresenius Medical Care to continuously improve the coordination and management of sustainability topics across all regions and global functions. The Sustainability Decision Board and the Corporate Sustainability Committee enable the Corporate Sustainability Office to manage Fresenius Medical Care’s sustainability program. The Corporate Sustainability Committee consists of senior representatives of all regions and global functions and has an advisory and steering role.

Our global sustainability program further strengthens and harmonizes our sustainability management concepts. The first initiatives have already been launched as part of this program and focus on patient satisfaction, occupational health and safety, suppliers, human and labor rights as well as data privacy and security.
