Corporate Responsibility

A commitment to sustainable healthcare

As a global medical devices company, we're committed to acting with integrity and responsibility throughout our operations. To us, that means respecting our employees, customers and the environment.


Progress and challenges

We measure corporate responsibility, address challenges and set goals. We would like our actions, our core operations, and all the choices we make every day to have a positive impact on the world around us.


Our ambition is to have satisfied employees who feel they have equal opportunities to grow within our organisation. We are also focused on meeting our health and safety targets. For instance we would like to raise the number of women in top management to 22% from 11% by the end of 2017.


Our goal is to make our customers’ lives easier by providing them with personalised services and safe, trustworthy products. One of the ways we do that is by offering phthalate-free alternatives for 98% of our products containing certified phthalates.Our target is to reach 100%.

We want to ensure all our employees follow our Code of Conduct when interacting with healthcare professionals. Currently 95% of our white-collar employees have been trained in our Code. Our target is to reach 100% of them.


We attempt to minimise the overall strain on the environment caused by our activities by focusing on the entire lifecycle of our products. Last year we reduced our CO2 emissions on energy use from our production and facilities by 3%. Our total production waste was 9,145 tonnes last year, and 24% of that went into recycling.
