The sustainability approach
For the Zur Rose Group, one thing is clear: sustainable entrepreneurship and profitable growth go hand in hand. Responsible business conduct, social responsibility, environmental protection and high ethical standards form the basis for business success.
Developing and implementing sustainability measures covers the entire Group and requires close cooperation across all of Zur Rose Group’s departments and sites. The sustainability approach is based on four strategic pillars: Healthier People, Sustainable Planet, Caring Company and Reliable Partnerships. In each of these pillars, Zur Rose has set itself key targets that are in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Zur Rose is also committed to the United Nations Global Compact.
Clear progress and clear targets for the future
The first Sustainability Report set the framework and a strong foundation for the Zur Rose Group’s further efforts to drive forward the various aspects of sustainability. This year’s second Sustainability Report provides a transparent overview of the progress the Group has made since then. It also illustrates the ambition to anchor sustainability even more strongly throughout the company and to involve all stakeholders – including employees.
For the first time, Zur Rose has set itself firm sustainability targets: among other things, the aim is to reduce CO2 emissions by 4.2 per cent annually and to work towards the long-term goal of climate neutrality. In the coming years, the intention is also to reach even more chronically ill people with the relevant services and further develop the platform for the digital healthcare ecosystem. In the long term, one thing is certain: the Zur Rose Group is committed to working towards achieving its vision so that everyone can manage their health in one click.
The sustainability targets are also linked to Executive Board remuneration. By doing this, the Zur Rose Group is underscoring its ambition in terms of sustainability and taking responsibility for all stakeholders – employees, customers, shareholders, healthcare partners and communities.
