ESG Focus Areas

Fundamental changes are needed in healthcare and progress is required. Improved patient outcome, lower total cost of care, increased efficiency and sustainable solutions is vital to secure tomorrow’s care.

To drive the changes needed, we have identified three focus areas that provide direction required to get results and spark positive change. They build on a materiality analysis, a stakeholder dialogue and are connected to corporate strategy. The focus areas in the ESG strategy are Healthy Lives, Climate conscious healthcare and Fair value chain and safe work environment.

By setting bold and ambitious goals in each of these areas, as well as KPIs and action plans, we can ensure efficiency and direction for our sustainability efforts. It allows us to have an even bigger impact on the planet and people as we work to improve and secure tomorrow’s healthcare.

On each focus area page you can learn more about: 

  • What are the challenges for society in these areas and how can we at Asker contribute to a more sustainable healthcare?
  • What are we doing to make positive difference within each focus area?
  • How do the focus areas relate to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact?
