Environmental, Social and Governance

At Philips, we are partnering with stakeholders to drive environmental, social and governance priorities and make a global impact.

Doing business responsibly and sustainably

Building on our longstanding commitment to sustainability, which stretches all the way back to our founding, we have now taken the next step by adopting a fully integrated approach to doing business responsibly and sustainably.

Acting with purpose

As a purpose-driven company, we are conscious of our responsibility towards society and of the need to continue to embed sustainability ever deeper in the way we do business.

 

Environmental


We are working to minimize our impact on the planet by taking climate action, driving the transition to a circular economy, implementing EcoDesign in our products, and partnering with our suppliers to reduce their environmental footprint.

Social


We aim to deliver social impact by improving people’s health and well-being, offering the best place to work, and engaging with our suppliers and the communities where we operate.

Governance


At Philips, everything we do is anchored by ethical and responsible practices. Our management structure, operating model, ethics framework and robust risk management help us maintain the highest standards.

Policies and regulations

With the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change exposing the risks in terms of people’s health and access to quality healthcare, we are committed to helping our customers build inclusive and resilient healthcare systems, while reducing our dependency on natural resources.
