To guide our efforts and measure our progress, we take a two-dimensional approach – social and ecological – to improving people’s lives
Solutions from our portfolio that directly support the curative (‘care’) or preventive (‘well-being’) side of people’s health determine the contribution to the social dimension. As healthy ecosystems are also needed for people to live a healthy life, the contribution to the ecological dimension is determined by means of our steadily growing Green solutions portfolio, such as our energy efficient products in Personal Health.
