Our philosophy of ‘people caring for people’ is at the centre of everything we do. We are committed to making a meaningful, positive difference in the world - for current and future generations. Ramsay Cares is our approach to sustainability. It’s a program with three key pillars: healthier people, stronger communities and a thriving planet.

Our changing world has shone a bright light on the importance of being a sustainable and responsible business. We know that caring for our people, supporting our communities and looking after the environment are vital to our individual happiness, collective success and future way of life.

Ramsay Health Care decided to review its sustainability strategy, starting with an in-depth look at what we do and how we add value to our stakeholders, seen through the prism of the Company’s guiding philosophy of 'people caring for people' – The Ramsay Way.

Ramsay people across Australia, Europe, the United Kingdom and Asia were engaged with a global project to refresh Ramsay’s sustainability approach. This process has energised our commitment to long-term sustainability across the company.

Our Ramsay Cares strategy is focused on fostering healthier people, stronger communities and a thriving planet. 

We are here to make a positive impact for current and future generations through health care services that are sustainable, innovative and delivered in The Ramsay Way.

A Shared Commitment

Collaboration is key to making real change. We value the strong relationships we have and seek to work together on delivering more sustainable outcomes. We are committed to supporting the United Nations Global Compact and 40:40 Vision to ensure we are well-positioned to achieve our goals for sustainability.

United Nations Global Compact

Since 2021, Ramsay Health Care has been committed to the UN Global Compact corporate responsibility initiative and its principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.

40:40 vision

40:40 Vision is an investor-led initiative to achieve gender balance in the executive leadership across Australia’s largest listed companies.

40:40 Vision seeks to achieve gender balance – 40 per cent women, 40 per cent men and 20 per cent any gender – across the senior leadership of all ASX200 companies by 2030.

Ramsay Health Care has joined to reflect our commitment to gender equality.

Colleen Harris

"Globally, Ramsay Health Care is a significant employer of women and we have long been committed to having strong female representation at all levels of the organisation.

Ramsay is determined to provide a caring and inclusive culture where staff can develop and feel empowered. By supporting 40:40 Vision, we hope to encourage other ASX200 companies to achieve gender equality, just as we have."

Colleen Harris
Group Chief People Officer

Ramsay Health Care supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which aim to promote peace and prosperity, while protecting our planet into the future.

The 17 goals are a call to action to achieve economic growth and address a range of social issues to end poverty. These include education, health, social protection and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.

We are committed to driving action on the relevant goals which underpin our Ramsay Cares approach.
