Creating a Sustainable Future

As part of the world’s leading hearing healthcare and technology group, Demant, EPOS is integrated in the Demant Sustainability Strategy and Framework and committed to contributing to UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

EPOS’ Sustainability Ambitions

Aside from focusing on our core contribution to society, we work to strengthen sustainability in our operational practices and in the coming years, we have two main priorities in this regard:

Climate impact:

We strive to reduce packaging and waste, support production and sourcing of green energy and strive for ambitious emission reductions particularly in our use of transport.

Diversity and inclusion:

We honour diversity and foster an unbiased and inclusive culture with equal opportunities.

Our Sustainability Framework

The direction we take for our sustainability work builds on a thorough assessment of the most important sustainability topics for EPOS and Demant, our stakeholders as well as our current and potential contributions to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Our main contribution to society is clear: Unleashing human potential through the Power of Audio. This is the core of our Sustainability Framework. Connected to the core, we have four pillars in our sustainability work which mainly are linked to our operational practices. For each pillar, we are defining individual ambitions, projects and targets that will drive our continued progress.

People and Culture

Our employees are our biggest strength and most valuable resource. Their well-being and engagement are fundamental to our success and a top priority of our Management.

Society and Local Community

Our company is an important part of society and, for EPOS, is it imperative to be a good neighbor in the communities in which we operate. That means that we through Demant share our resources, donate to purposeful causes, and engage in impactful projects around the world.

Environment and Climate

We want to leave the planet in good shape for future generations. Therefore, we assess our impact and continuously work to limit our footprint. As part of Demant, we are furthermore committed to the Science Based Targets initiative, committing to align climate targets with what is deemed necessary by science to meet the most ambitious aim of the Paris Agreement: to limit global warming to 1.5°C by reaching net-zero global carbon emissions by 2050.

Business Ethics and Governance

We comply with all rules and regulations, and it is important that we always conduct our business in an ethical manner. We believe that going further than what local laws prescribe can be necessary and have a positive effect on local governments and practices.
