The challenges of 2020-21 highlighted the importance of being a socially and environmentally
sustainable business. Our long-term commitment to sustainability is driven through the Ramsay
Cares Sustainability Strategy. Ramsay Cares focuses on fostering healthier people, stronger
communities and a thriving planet. It reaffirms that we are here to have a positive impact for
current and future generations.
The Ramsay Cares Sustainability Strategy unites our global
businesses in a shared vision for sustainability. It is underpinned
by our philosophy of 'people caring for people' – we call it
The Ramsay Way.
Ramsay Cares has three sustainability pillars:
Ramsay people across Australia, Europe, the United Kingdom
and Asia were engaged with a global project to refresh
Ramsay’s approach to sustainability. This process re-energised our
commitment to long-term sustainability across the business and
led to the establishment of a Global Sustainability Management
Committee, which developed a Global Sustainability Policy and the
Ramsay Cares strategy.
In February 2021, the Board approved the Ramsay Cares objectives
and targets to be achieved over the next three to five years. In the
coming year, we will focus on engaging our people, patients and
partners to help deliver the Ramsay Cares goals.
Ramsay is committed to driving action on the relevant United Nations
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which provide a blueprint to
achieve a better and more sustainable future for all and underpin our
Ramsay Cares Sustainability Strategy.
To support our commitment, Ramsay has become a participant in
the United Nations Global Compact, a special initiative of the UN
Secretary-General calling on companies to align their operations and
strategies with ten universally accepted principles related to human
rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.
