Promoting a culture of sustainability, enhancing human capital, ensuring health and safety in the workplace, increasing people’s well-being, reducing environmental impact, investing in research and development for a sustainable, resilient and durable ecosystem: these are the pillars of the strategy Esaote is implementing for its development, which goes hand in hand with the multidisciplinary One Health approach aimed at reducing risks to health”, stated Franco Fontana, CEO of Esaote S.p.A.

The decision to joint the Global Compact  is part of a long-term strategy that also includes the drafting of a sustainability report, the dissemination of socio-economic, ethical and environmental standards to suppliers and subsidiaries, the analysis and verification of value creation in the supply chain, all the way to the training of employees and business partners to ensure that an appropriate culture of ethics is in place.
