A Bigger Care – our sustainability strategy

A Bigger Care is Asker’s sustainability strategy. It expresses our ambition to take responsibility that extends beyond our own direct impact and to create a fair and sustainable value chain – from production to product use.

 This strategy is integrated into Asker’s overarching strategy and our ambition to deliver products and services that not only improve healthcare, but also reduce the total cost of care and environmental impact.

Asker’s position at the centre of the value chain creates a unique opportunity for Asker to drive progress in sustainability along with our partners and suppliers, and also to develop our own product range to help lessen climate impact.

Three focus areas

Asker’s sustainability work is focused in three focus areas that are embedded in our operations and are based on our materiality assessment and ongoing stakeholder dialogues.

Each focus area has clear objectives. Asker bases its sustainability work on the framework and direction set by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Asker focuses on six of the global SDGs, where the Group’s companies can have an impact and a positive contribution through their operations and role in the value chain. Asker is committed to the UN Global Compact and its ten principles on human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.
