What if healthcare technology companies could help treat people and our planet?
The health of our planet is vital to the health of society and the patients we serve. For years, we’ve been committed to reducing our use of natural resources and investing in renewables to sustainably power our operations and promote environmental stewardship. Today, it’s more important than ever that we acknowledge and plan for the challenges caused by climate change. That is why we have set a goal to be carbon neutral in our operations by FY30. This milestone will increase the resilience, longevity, and sustainability of our business as we continue to improve patient health.
