We recognise we have a responsibility to care for the natural environment while we pursue our business goals. Climate change is a growing concern among our customers, investors, and our own people. Furthermore, environmental legislation is emerging in countries where we manufacture and sell our products, so it is important that we strive for continuous improvement in this area. 

Our approach

Our approach is to operate our business efficiently and responsibly while improving care and outcomes for patients. We measure key environmental metrics, including waste management, recycling and water usage, and publicly report on these metrics. As part of our eco-efficiency strategy, we have established collaborative teams to work on a range of topics, including sustainable packaging, bioplastics and 3D printing recycling. We believe that by investing in these initiatives, we can be more innovative and more successful in the long term.

All of our environmental disclosures and metrics can be found in our most recent Annual Report.

Sustainability Metrics

Reporting on key metrics is one way we hold ourselves accountable in this area. You can find more detailed environmental, social and governance disclosures in our latest Annual Report.
