Achievement of sustainable development goals

We have analyzed our operations and business strategy in relation to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by considering our positive and negative impacts. From among the 17 goals and 169 targets, we selected and prioritized the ones that are most essential for us and we commit to promoting in our operations. We actively promote eight sustainable development goals.

Good health and well-being

This is our most important sustainable development goal. We have a significant opportunity to contribute to people’s health and holistic well-being. In ensuring comprehensive health care, we have a positive impact larger than our size. Possible negative effects may be due, for example, to excessive or unnecessary prescription of drugs. We systematically aim to reduce this kind of practice through our clinical quality efforts. Read more.

Decent work and economic growth

We have plenty of direct positive effects on this goal through, for example, economic growth, innovations that improve profitability and job creation. We are a strong enabler as a provider of occupational health services that maintain and improve the work ability of our customers. Our growth improves people’s well-being without risking natural resources. Read more.

Industry, innovation and infrastructure

Climate_action 500x500.png

We transparently report on our climate impacts. We are committed to the targets agreed upon in international climate summits for the mitigation of climate change. We reduce the emissions arising from our operations by increasingly shifting to green electricity and preferring vehicles with low emissions. We promote the conservation and sustainable use of natural resources in our supply chains by reducing plastic consumption, recycling, increasing the efficiency of material management and reducing the number of small orders. Promoting the use of digital health services in society helps to reduce emissions from unnecessary travel.
