Sustainable Development (English)
If we can create value to the society at large, and do our job well, satisfactory economic results will follow - and allow us to build a stronger company with time.
This was the simple philosophy of Åsmund S. Lærdal when he founded our company in 1940. It has remained our guiding principle ever since.
Below you will find the Laerdal Report on Sustainability: Helping Build a Better Society which outlines our progress during the previous year, 2015.
In this report we address the following topics:
- How Laerdal Medical and Laerdal Global Health complement one another and contribute to mutual success.
- The value and importance of partnerships.
- The focus on transparency and ethics and the emphasis on continual improvement in this area.
- Laerdal initiatives to support the United Nations Sustainability Goals and the United Nations Global Compact Principles.
We believe this report will help others to understand our organization and the activities we prioritize to ensure responsible business practices as well as our mission of helping save lives.
We encourage feedback from everyone who has an interest in the work of our Companies. We will review and respond to the comments on a regular basis. We aim to be open and transparent about our progress, as well as about the challenges we face.
