Responsibility to the environment and to our stakeholders
As a vertically integrated dialysis company, we not only manufacture products related to dialysis and develop treatment procedures; we also use our products and procedures every day in our own clinics. As a result, our understanding of responsibility begins with our business model: By interacting directly with our patients, clinic employees and doctors throughout our global clinic network, we are able to keep the needs of our most important stakeholders in mind and continuously improve our services. We also work in concert with healthcare partners, international experts, and industry and patient associations to improve the quality of life for renal patients above and beyond our core products and services. By steadily expanding environmental management at our facilities and clinics, we can reduce the impact our business has on the environment while ensuring our financial success in the future. Our concept of responsibility is also rooted in Fresenius Medical Care’s values: quality, honesty and integrity, innovation and improvement, respect and dignity.
