Our sustainable commitment

Driven by our strong company values we've made sustainability a substantial part of our business strategy.

OUR SUSTAINABLE COMMITMENT

Healthcare has negative climate impact both via emissions in the production of disposable products and via the high volume of waste generated after the products have been used. As a leading distributor of medical solutions in Europe, Duomed plays an important role between production and consumption. Our unique position gives us the opportunity to make the healthcare market more sustainable.

Driven by our strong company values we’ve made sustainability a substantial part of our business strategy. At Duomed, we believe profit and purpose are mutually reinforcing. The urgency around climate change has moved us to accelerate our sustainability initiatives and demands a sustainability strategy with bolder, more ambitious goals. But our strategy goes further than caring for our planet. It’s also about offering a high-quality, sustainable product portfolio and investing in our people, our most important asset.

We set up 10 company-wide projects to deliver on our ambitions and we are committed to include clear sustainability goals into our long term company strategy.

Building a better future with the UN Global Compact

Duomed Group supports the UN Global  Compact, a voluntary initiative based on company commitments to implement universal sustainability principles and to advance UN goals such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

 

Since February 2023, we have pledged to continually improve their integration into our business strategy, culture, and daily operations. 

We also commit to issue an annual Communication on Progress, a public disclosure to stakeholders on progress made in implementing the ten principles of the UN Global Compact, and in supporting broader UN development goals.

About the UN Global Compact

Launched in 2000, the United Nations Global Compact is a call to companies around the world to align their strategies and operations with ten universal principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of broader UN goals.

 

Through the development, implementation, and disclosure of responsible corporate policies and practices, business can help ensure that markets advance in ways that benefit economies and societies everywhere.

 

The Global Compact is not a regulatory body, but a voluntary leadership platform for dialog and learning. With more than 10,000 signatories in 160 countries, it is the world's largest corporate responsibility initiative..
