Fisher & Paykel Healthcare recognise that looking after the wider community and the environment is inextricably linked with this way of doing business. In addition to the organisation’s direct impact on improving the health and wellbeing of people around the world, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare is committed to implementing sustainable business practices. Fisher & Paykel Healthcare has set Science-Based Targets for emissions reductions consistent with the goals of the Paris agreement, and measures and reports carbon emissions annually.

Along with carbon footprint reduction, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare’s current sustainability initiatives include efficient use of resources and waste minimization. After use, many of Fisher & Paykel Healthcare’s products are classified as medical waste and must be disposed of according to country-specific regulations and guidelines. Recognising the environmental impact associated with healthcare waste, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare is exploring ways to support customers in reducing the negative impacts associated with product disposal.
