Throughout Europe, we are facing major challenges that put pressure on the healthcare systems. The number of people in need of care is increasing as people live longer, many with chronic diseases. Large parts of the healthcare system are struggling with budget deficits and a shortage of healthcare professionals. At the same time people's expectations of care are increasing.
As a partner in streamlining services and products for healthcare in Europe, we have a responsibility to be part of the solution to these challenges - now and for generations to come. OneMed makes it easier for its customers to provide the right care faster, with the right products. We measure our success in how well our healthcare customers achieve their goals and visions:
OneMed takes responsibility throughout the value chain. By ensuring that our products are manufactured under good conditions, by our transport leaving as small an environmental footprint as possible and by a quality approach based on working methods and processes, environmental impact and social responsibility.
Our view of environmental work is the same as the one we have when working with improvement initiatives around total cost and quality of care - real actions with measurable results are valued more than big words and empty promises. We work with many tools to achieve this - for example, we increase the number of trucks that run on RME100 (rapeseed fuel), we can compensate for climate as part of agreements and we actively drive development forward by, together with our customers, placing higher demands on our suppliers.
We take responsibility in a similar way when it comes to social issues and justice production conditions. Our industry is not a leader in CSR and the processes take time. But for us, it is important to continue setting demands and not abandon the ambition to improve people's everyday lives.
