Our key sustainability topics
Sustainability is an integrated part of Handicare’s way of working. Our products and solutions reduce strain injuries among caregivers and our stairlifts make it possible for people to live at home longer. Our car conversions increase the quality of life for the physically challenged and enable them to live an active life. We endeavour to make everyday life easier for the people with whom we cooperate throughout our value chain and take responsibility for the environment, societal and economic issues wherever we operate.
We conducted a stakeholder dialogue in 2017. Through a web survey and personal interviews with customers, dealers, owners, the Board of Directors and employees, the questions that these stakeholders regard as most important in their relation to Handicare were identified. Based on this stakeholder dialogue, Handicare’s management team has identified the company’s most significant sustainability topics. During 2019, we will conduct a new stakeholder dialogue with caregivers in Europe as well as our own employees, where they can rank our most pressing sustainability topics and provide opinions on other important sustainability topics.
