Our responsibility

Being a responsible company, Getinge works to support the  society and human health as well as minimizing our environmental impact. As a global manufacturer of medical devices and services, we have operations in many locations across the world, and its employees represent a variety of cultures and backgrounds. And with this comes responsibility – both locally and globally.

UN Global Compact

Getinge supports the United Nations Global Compact, and are implementing the ten principles on human rights, labor, environment and anti corruption on our operations.

Our sustainability work is structured within three areas:

Ethical business behavior

We are committed to the highest standards of ethical, moral and legal business conduct. In many of the countries where we are active, health and safety in the workplace is regulated by stringent national legislation.

People & Society

Our corporate social responsibility is built on high health, safety, discrimination and ethics standards. We strive to make a positive and sustainable contri­bution to the communities we are active in.


Our sustainability work includes reducing the environmental impact of our products throughout their entire life cycle. Environmentally compatible product development is a priority.
