SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY


Our commitment to responsibility

SGH Healthcaring attaches critical importance to compliance with laws, regulations and universal ethical principles. Our CSR policy reflects the company’s commitment to the rules and ethical principles we support and protect, and to which we are actively committed. Promoting this culture and requirement for compliance is, in our view, essential. All the more so, insofar as the world is moving quickly and being sure to act with integrity is essential. We have embarked on the Lucie 26000 labelling process to underpin our common values and are currently classed as a “Lucie Apprentice”.

In our desire to grow and as a manufacturer of medical devices and primary and secondary packaging made from polymers, it is important to remember that every decision taken on a day-to-day basis can have an impact on the environment. It is therefore critical to ensure that all our actions comply with the rules and legislation in effect at all times. We also need to acknowledge our social responsibility, not only in terms of the essential quality of our devices but also our contribution to substitution, in replacing raw materials derived from fossil fuels with recycled and/or bio-sourced materials (where this is possible under the regulations that govern our activities). At the very least, we need to be vigilant in reducing waste from our production process and products at the end of their life. The organisation has carried out a life cycle analysis (LCA) to identify its impacts. The Group is proud that two of its companies are ISO 14001 certified.

All companies in the Group resolutely share our values. They are reflected in our day-to-day activities, since we firmly believe that creating sustainable relationships and acting with integrity is the only basis for trust between the business and the people it deals with.

Our group is based on strong values that are supported by everyone. They are reflected in our day-to-day activities, since we firmly believe that creating sustainable relationships and acting with integrity is the only basis for trust between the business and the people it deals with.

Pleasure

Enjoying what we do, so that we want to keep doing it. Our aim is to make everyday life easier for patients and carers by improving existing devices and creating solutions that will meet their future needs.

Audacity

Innovating to produce sustainably. Eco-design is not a bland term for plastics manufacturers, because it constantly forces us to push technological boundaries. Waste recovery and developing the use of green materials are both goals we are pursuing.

Rigour

Pride comes from rigour, seriousness and guaranteeing the safety, traceability and effectiveness of the products we market in accordance with certifications.

Commitment

Tackling every task with ambition and seeing it through to the end, with no turning back. We have renewed our commitment to the United Nations Global Compact to ensure fair, respectful human relationships.

Teamwork

Manufacturing locally at our three sites in France, to support the dynamism of the areas in which we operate and encourage local integration.

By committing to our CSR strategy, we create value for everyone, from employees to staff, customers and shareholders. We work within the group but also in the wider area, by training young people so that the next generation becomes the talented staff of the future, encouraging collaboration with nearby suppliers to develop local skills, and protecting our environment and resources so that in the future we can go further, together.

Since 2009, SGH Healthcaring has been committed to the United Nations Global Compact social responsibility initiative and its ten principles, based on four pillars: human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. We have affirmed our support for the Global Compact France again this year.
