Sustainability Report 2007

GRI Index: G3 Core Indicators


The Philips Sustainability Report 2007 is our tenth externally verified report. Our first environmental report was for the year 1998. We expanded to sustainability reporting beginning with the year 2002 to cover the full spectrum of our social, environmental and economic performance.

Our 2007 report demonstrates that sustainability is a business driver at Philips and is fully integrated in our strategy. Given our competencies and desire to improve lives with innovations that are important for society at large, we are focusing on energy efficiency and available and affordable healthcare. Therefore the report includes in-depth coverage of these key global challenges. The identification of these and other material issues is discussed in the report.
