The creation of Philips products and solutions that directly support the curative or preventive side of people’s health was one of the key objectives of our EcoVision5 program with a target of 500 million lives improved in 2015. By year-end 2012, we were already at a level of 570 million lives, driven by our Healthcare sector.
With the renewal of our company vision in 2012 we have extended this approach with our well-being products that help people live a healthy life, as well as our Green Products that contribute to a healthy ecosystem. Our goal is to improve the lives of 3 billion people a year by 2025. For the year 2012 we have established our total baseline at 1.7 billion people a year. More information on this metric can be found in Sustainability statements of the Annual Report 2012.
