The pandemic has made us more digital and thus more sustainable.We do not travel if we do not have to and most meetings take place digitally. We at QA / RA at Mediplast are responsible for ensuring that the products are of the right quality and that we comply with laws and regulations. During the pandemic, we had to change our way of working. Even quality audits are now performed digitally where we film to be able to make an assessment in real time. I believe that we will maintain many of the new habits even after the pandemic, as they make our work considerably more efficient.
AddLife’s most important stakeholders are customers, employees, suppliers and shareholders. We pursue ongoing dialogues with these parties, which provide important information that we use for both business and sustainable development purposes.
In 2017 AddLife conducted stakeholder dialogues with subsequent materiality analysis. The purpose of the study was to develop the company’s sustainability efforts and to create a basis for sustainability reporting. An analysis of stakeholder expectations and requirements, combined with the importance of the areas for the business, including the actual ability to have an influence, helped us to identify eight important issues related to sustainability. Based on these issues we have identified six of the 17 UN global sustainable development goals that we actively work with.
We have divided these goals into three focus areas: responsible employer, responsible distributor and producer, as well as responsible market participant.
