Our way of making a difference through life-changing hearing health is our most important contribution to global health as well as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
It is under SDG 3 that Demant has its core contribution to sustainable development. Our core business and purpose of life-changing differences through hearing health change the lives of people with hearing loss. From screening newborns to testing in our clinics, we stay in people’s lives to continue to improve their hearing abilities and audio experiences.
By providing ground-breaking scientific research and boosting R&D spending in the countries where we operate with R&D, we bring innovation. Through William Demant Foundation, we make donations to universities around the world, contribute with cutting-edge health research and support development of health infrastructure.
We give insight into our ambitions and how we work with and develop our sustainability efforts in the Sustainability Report. It is our way of illustrating our indisputable positive impact on the sustainable development goals, while addressing the risks that our business and operation might entail for people, society and the planet. In doing so, we highlight selected projects, progress and results.
The report serves as Demant’s Communication on Progress report to the United Nations Global Compact and as the statutory report to be presented under sections 99a, 99b, 99d and 107d of the Danish Financial Statements Act. It also includes the disclosure requirements of the EU taxonomy on sustainable activities.
