Medline has a broad understanding of corporate social responsibility believing that it spans social, environmental and economic issues.
As a player in the medical device industry, we acknowledge that we are in a position to make a positive contribution to the global sustainable development agenda. With that in mind, in the context of Medline’s European operations corporate social responsibility is synonymous with sustainability.
Our CSR focus areas are:
Labour and human rights (ethical supply chains)
Breast cancer awareness
Key influences on Medline’s approach to CSR include the United Nations Global Compact Principles, the United Nations sustainable development goals, ISO 26000:2010 and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.
We believe it is important to be aware of, and aligned with, international best practices.
Our physical environment and our health are intimately intertwined. Preserving a healthy planet for current and future generations is not only the right thing to do, but it is our responsibility as a leader in the healthcare industry.
