Green Hospital - sustainability corporate

A sustainability-oriented strategy

Our strategy is sustainability oriented which is essential to our success.

The good reputation we have managed to achieve over the years, is based on our powerful convictions and the trust our customers have placed in us.

We base our sustainability strategy on four focal points (click on the headlines below for more information or visit our Corporate Sustainability webpage):

1. Improving healthcare for people all over the world

Creating solutions that contribute to more sustainable and improved outcomes to enhance the quality of patient’s lives.

2. Striving for everyone’s safety at work

Expanding our culture to society, we make safety at the workplace a priority and aim to achieve a world without occupational accidents and zero long-term health effects. We also strive to reduce the transmission of infections, reduce lost-time incident rates and train all employees in occupational health and safety topics.

3. Protecting the environment and helping health care providers to do so

Preventing emissions with safety technology products and services, we position ourselves as a competent partner for climate protection. In the medical arena we focus on the green hospital concept, minimizing our environmental footprint.

4. Carefully selecting suppliers to implement our vision throughout the supply chain

The selection of our suppliers is focused on sharing constant improvements and sustainable policies that contribute to current social challenges. In doing so, we protect the health of whom we work with and collaborate.

Our contribution to the hospital

We work towards helping others to have the highest possible positive impact, following the principals represented in our 5R’s.

The way to a sustainable operation is focusing on prevention. This happens when you rethink all of your processes and product life cycles (in order to produce less waste), redesigning for best use or reducing certain type of materials in what you produce.

We work alongside hospitals, making design and operations smarter, easier and greener to become a safer choice for people. Our 5R’s actively contribute towards hospitals becoming green.
