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.
Our Approach to Sustainability
We work to strengthen sustainability in our operational practices and in the coming years, we have two main priorities in this regard. While these areas are the focus of our current sustainability strategy, we will continue to improve on other important areas of our business.
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. As part of the Demant Group, we are 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.
Diversity and inclusion
We honour diversity and foster an unbiased and inclusive culture with equal opportunities. We have a focused approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I), and to guide and steer our work, a global DE&I position paper has been introduced to form a policy and 2022 target-setting.
Our Sustainability Framework
Our Sustainability Framework provides an overview of the areas that are key to the EPOS Sustainability Strategy, and which Sustainability Development Goals we focus on as part of this. 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.
Connected to the core of our Sustainability Framework, 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.
