Our corporate responsibility priorities are based on our strategic guidelines and the value we create for stakeholders, society, the environment, and the climate. In every aspect of our operations, we take into account the special characteristics of the business and operating environment in the field of health technology and support the UN’s sustainable development goals.
There are altogether 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
We have chosen eight UN Sustainable Development Goals that are closely related to our business and where we believe we can make the most impact.
We develop safe and easy-to-use certified health technology solutions for healthcare professionals and patients to enable more effective ophthalmic diagnostics. We regularly monitor customer satisfaction and collect feedback on our products. We continuously develop both our current products and new product innovations to meet customer needs.
Our innovations enhance preventive health care and we improve the accessibility, quality, and productivity of health care everywhere in the world, thus reducing inequality. Our products help eye diseases to be detected at an early stage. If left untreated, eye diseases often lead to blindness.
We engage in dialog and work closely with a number of patient organizations, hospitals, universities, and research and development institutes in order to advance health care. We also donate our products for research and teaching purposes and to educational institutions, schools, and selected charities based on a rigid evaluation process.
When we succeed, we create economic growth for our stakeholders as well as a financially stable work community that provides competitive benefits for our employees. Profitable growth and a growth strategy that supports increasing shareholder value provide us with numeric indicators to measure our success.
We grow and develop together by continuously providing training for our personnel and partners. We annually assess the training needs of our personnel and prepare a training plan that also takes into account individual needs. In addition, we offer summer jobs and internships for schoolchildren and students every year.
We take environmental considerations into account throughout the product lifecycle from design to packaging materials and logistics. We ensure the sustainability of our products and production methods and continually develop our processes.
The certified ISO 13485 Medical Devices quality management system provides us with the framework for taking into account environmental and responsibility considerations. In the design process, we apply the IEC 60601-1-9 Environmentally Conscious Design standard.
We seek to reduce the environmental impact of our operations. We monitor and measure the recyclability and recycling volumes of our packaging materials, and recycle electronic waste and packaging materials through certified partners.
We ensure responsible product and service purchasing and audit our partners regularly. Our Purchasing Policy ensures that our subcontractors operate responsibly and meet our quality and environmental criteria as well as regulatory requirements.
Environmental objectives and environmental certificates are considered in the supplier selection process and continuing collaboration. In the transport of products, we favor logistics service providers who are committed to reducing CO2 emissions.
We strive to ensure that all our operations are ethically sustainable and transparent. We treat our employees equally and ensure equality in job roles, development opportunities, and remuneration.
Our responsibility and way of working is guided by our common values. In our operations, we follow laws, regulations, good governance, and Revenio’s own ethical Code of Conduct. We have a Whistleblowing channel in place for reporting any misconduct.
