Planetary Life

We aim to do all we can to minimize our impact on the environment. We channel our efforts into a set of initiatives, carried out in collaboration with stakeholders across our value chain.

Human Life

When we say that we have a passion for life, we also mean beyond acute care situations. We support healthcare professionals, scientists and pharmaceutical producers in their work, combating cardiovascular diseases, minimizing the spread of healthcare associated infections and developing sustainable solutions for healthcare systems.

Patient Life

Saving lives is our highest priority. That’s why we develop products and solutions to assist healthcare professionals to do just that, which includes boosting treatment efficiency, increasing patient safety, supporting recovery and improving accessibility.

Professional Life

We support healthcare and life science professionals by helping them achieve optimal clinical outcomes while ensuring that they feel well prepared and equipped to meet challenges. We do this through a constant dialogue and by passionately developing our offering, optimizing our solutions and streamlining workflows.

Business Life

Saving more lives while populations are growing, and people live longer, is a big challenge. We think the way forward involves using resources in more efficient ways and offering expedient financial solutions. That’s why we keep innovating and pushing digitalization, as well as offering new dynamic business models and training programs.

Societal Life

We want to contribute to a society where social equity grows, where human rights are protected, and diversity and gender equality are enhanced. This includes working to ensure that all people have access to quality care and a healthy living environment. It also means building a diverse and collaborative organization of employees who can add to the development of our customers and of society.
