Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate responsibility is an integral part of our corporate culture. Our corporate responsibility strategy allows us to systematically address the key issues impacting our business and stakeholders. We keep the patient at the heart of everything we do here at Zenon, and the weight of that responsibility is always at the forefront of our minds. We take great pride in doing it because we know this approach can deliver valuable help to patients, their families and caregivers and society overall. We maintain an unwavering focus on the wellbeing of every community in every region we operate. As an integrated healthcare leader, we strive to protect the health, enhance the life and respond to health needs on millions.
Key Focus Areas
We create value for our business and our communities by respecting the environment, and understanding and reducing our impact on the world around us. We constantly strive to follow best practices and make clear commitments to reduce our environmental footprint. We do this by developing manufacturing procedures that consumes less energy and water, and the inclusion of environmental criteria in the selection of new production procedures.
Our company bases its moral and social policies on respect for people with our zero accident policy. Only through promotion of diversity in all its forms and respect for others will Zenon continue to attract the best talent. By the development of human resources through developing skills, promoting diversity, developing team synergies, encouraging high-quality social dialogue and the promotion of opportunities for younger people will Zenon enhance well-being in the workplace. For us responsibility is about creating a sustainable business with a vibrant, inventive and ethical culture that will help people lead better, fuller lives today, tomorrow, and well into the future. By thinking differently, we pledge to change not only the patient’s lives, but also the world around us.
Zenon develops its business in partnership with its customers, fueling their growth as well as its own. We believe today’s biggest business opportunities lie in society’s biggest challenges – from the management of natural resources to making business more transparent, trusted and fair. It’s important to us that we’re a responsible business that treats people fairly – people are our greatest asset.
Creating value for clients and communities depends on building and maintaining strong relationships between people with a mix of talents, experiences and backgrounds, so we’re especially focused on building a diverse and inclusive company. To succeed in our network-wide goal to be number one for talent, we must attract, develop and retain high-potential people who work with each other effectively. We create socio-economic value by using our skills and experience to engage with and help local communities, measuring our impact and encouraging a network-wide focus on capacity building and education. We also support local charitable projects in the areas of medicine and health.
Access to quality healthcare is a true challenge. Nearly one third of the global population does not have access to essential medicines and vaccines, due to inadequate diagnostic testing and distribution channels, lack of healthcare personnel, and geo-political conflicts. To overcome this we provide resources and expertise to communities by working with the healthcare chain. We seek to develop solutions that are suited to patient’s needs. Our ongoing commitment drives the development of innovative products and services adapted to the needs of patients and communities.
