Our key sustainability topics

Handicare has identified the company’s eleven most significant sustainability topics. We have divided the topics into five areas: employees, customers, the environment, suppliers and the community.

Our contribution to the global sustainability goals

The world’s leaders have committed to 17 global goals in order to meet four of the earth’s greatest challenges by 2030 — to eradicate extreme poverty, reduce inequalities in the world, resolve the climate crisis and to promote peace and justice. Achievement of these goals requires broad agreement and companies worldwide are being urged to contribute by identifying the goals that are relevant to them and to work towards these.

At Handicare, we have analysed how our business can contribute to the goals and determined that there are primarily four goals that we can impact positively through our eleven target areas:

3 Good health and well-being
5 Gender equality
8 Decent work and economic growth
13 Climate action
