Social Responsibility Strategy
In 2014, we made a decision to put more structure into our CSR initiatives - we were mainly looking for the answer to the question as to how to better respond to stakeholder needs while developing our business activities based on a system of values. Key stakeholders and decision-makers responsible for our most important business areas took part in the time-consuming process of strategy development.
We selected three key pillars of social responsibility: serving the patients and the community, ethical conduct of business and innovation and advancing knowledge. Within those three intertwined areas, we made 14 commitments which we intend to pursue until 2018.
Our Social Responsibility Strategy fits within 6 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG):
- 3. Human health and wellbeing
- 5. Gender equality
- 8. Economic growth and decent work
- 9. Innovation and infrastructure
- 12. Responsible consumption and manufacturing
- 16. Peace, justice and strong institutions
