Our patients are at the heart of everything we do. This also determines the way we look at sustainability. Our commitment to sustainability is incorporated in our vision and our mission. It is also reflected in our strategy to deliver sustainable solutions with innovative products and services of the highest quality at a reliable cost. Managing sustainability successfully means creating lasting value – economically, ecologically and socially. For us, it also means continuously implementing global sustainability standards in our operations around the world.
Our Sustainability Reporting
Each year, we disclose information on our sustainability activities as part of our Non-Financial Report. The report is our opportunity to regularly share how we create value for all stakeholders, including our patients, employees, investors, and beyond. The report covers different focus areas. These comprise our patients and employees, environmental protection, combating bribery and corruption, and respect for human rights. It's a transparent way to discuss what we stand for as a company and what actions we take to advance these areas.
