Our planet, our partners, our people
Optimizing our ecological footprint
To reduce our ecological footprint we are maintaining our focus on overall environmental performance improvement, driven by our EcoVision program.
We are committed to develop, promote and market more energy-efficient solutions for people in all markets. We address this challenge with our Green Products and Green Innovation.
We also seek to facilitate new solutions that will drive responsible energy practices, and have long focused on the energy efficiency of our products and production processes.
The significant issues for our company – and our industry – in the environmental area continue to be energy efficiency, chemical content of products, and collection and recycling. We remain committed to giving our full attention to these challenges.
Working with stakeholders, we aim to share expertise and co-create innovative solutions that will make a difference to future generations.
Partnering to drive change
Multi-stakeholder engagement is necessary to improve working conditions in the supply chain – an important contribution towards the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
We engage with our suppliers to encourage them to share our commitment to sustainability. This includes sound environmental and ethical standards as well as providing working conditions for their employees that reflect both the Philips General Business Principles and the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) Code of Conduct.
We continue to focus on effective partnering with non-governmental organizations to support common goals that also drive our business.
Our people – making a difference
If we are to win in the market and step up growth, we need engaged employees who demonstrate entrepreneurial spirit, uncompromising determination and a desire for excellence – as embodied in our new company culture.
In turn, our new culture should also help make Philips a more dynamic and rewarding place for our talented, dedicated employees to work.
We have long been active in the communities where we live and work. By linking our social investment initiatives with the scope of our business, we make our core competencies available to make a difference in people’s lives.
