Working to make life better
We aim to have a positive long-term impact on everything we do – from our solutions for customers to the communities in which we operate.
Sustainability runs through everything we do
We think about the long-term effects of our actions – whether we’re helping people to heal, reducing our environmental footprint or giving back to the communities we serve. We’re careful of how we use resources. And we aim to reduce emissions and waste wherever possible to protect the environment.
We invest in our people and make sure our suppliers look after theirs. We do business responsibly and we give back to society by investing in communities where we operate – and by supporting charities that share our goals.
We believe in continuously measuring and improving our approach to sustainability. We’re a signatory to the UN Global Compact and we follow the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Index and OECD guidelines for multinational enterprises.
We’re always looking for ways to protect the environment, produce less waste, reduce CO2, and make better use of resources.
Every year, our sustainability report looks at the impact of our business, products and productions on our people, the environment, our suppliers and the communities where we operate.
