In 2018, Elos Medtech reduced our energy consumption from non-renewable resources, rolled out the new Code of Conduct and published our first sustainability report. This blog article will give you an insight into what we set out to do in 2018, what we actually did, and what we want to accomplish in 2019.
2018 was an important year for Elos Medtech’s sustainability work. Our goal was to increase our sustainability focus within our operations, incorporate sustainability in our business strategy as well as anchor our sustainability agenda in all parts of the company.
In 2018, we aimed to:
As a company operating on the global market, we must take responsibility for everything that we do and leave behind to future generations. Looking back, not only did we meet our goals for 2018, but we are also proud to say that 7% of our total investments were spent on improving our environmental performance. In addition, we reduced our energy consumption from non-renewable resources, which means that 60% of all the energy we used was renewable.
Below are a few more sustainability highlights:
“Sustainability is an important part of our business strategy. In 2018, we published our first sustainability report and we also launched a sustainability agenda with our three focus areas: Care for our Business, Care for our People and Care for our Responsibilities. In these focus areas, we set specific sustainability goals which we worked actively to meet in 2018”, says Jan Wahlström, CEO at Elos Medtech.
Although we are proud of our accomplishments in 2018, we will not settle. Instead, we will strive to be even better and continue improving our sustainability work. Our ambitions for 2019 are to:
Developing and manufacturing medical devices that impact human health comes with great responsibility. Patients put their trust in the tools used to treat them, and the creators of those tools put their trust in us. Earning and keeping that trust means focusing on what we do better than anyone else. Aside from creating state-of-the-art equipment, capabilities, and processes in the medtech industry, it is also our responsibility to reduce our ecological footprint. We are committed to contributing to sustainable development within medical technology. We would love for you to join us on our journey!
