Veritas' sustainability focus
In 2022, workshops were held with the management of the Veritas group where the emphasis was placed on the company's sustainability issues. Management ranked the issues by importance, guided by previous sustainability reports and environmental policies. Veritas' 2022-2023 sustainability focus is thus based on the important factors that, in the management's opinion, can have the greatest impact on the environment, society, economy and human resources. The company is an extremely important link in the country's entire healthcare system and therefore takes its social role seriously. With these priorities, management hopes to increase the company's positive impact on society and reduce the negative impact. The emphasis was also aligned with global goals 5, 10, 12 and 13. In environmental matters, the emphasis is on a reduced carbon footprint, in the economy on reduced costs due to disposal, as well as transparency, honesty and good ethics in governance and diversity and equal growth opportunities, to name a few. We believe that we can win more victories with sustainability as our guiding principle because together we change the world.
