Being a humanitarian company means corporate social responsibility permeates both our day-to-day operations and long-term planning. Below are some highlights of our ongoing efforts to improve global health challenges.
We believe that true innovation of life saving products is created at the intersection of our passion to drive global change and our cutting-edge engineering or what we call Passioneering®. Within this unique passion-driven creative space we engineer human-focused solutions, designing game changing products and building programs that deliver real social, environmental and public health impact.
We approach challenges with an “everything is possible” attitude and push the boundaries on business as usual to find more effective solutions and smarter ways to address global health and development problems. Vestergaard values immersive engagement, diverse opinions and expertise from the private sector, public sector experts, scientists and engineers we work with to develop high quality products and sustainable solutions.
Keenly aware that timely delivery of our products and services impacts lives, we have established state-of-the-art production facilities and flexible supply chains to quickly produce products at scale. We ensure rapid delivery to end users through strategic distribution networks in concert with local governments, aid agencies, NGOs, retail markets and business entities. And, we encourage dialogue with the people who use our products to drive adoption and optimize impact.
We make considerable investments in scientific research and development to spur the creation of new products and to refine current ones. We rely heavily on data-driven evidence, in the lab and in the field, and encourage independent verification by third parties. We are also committed to raising industry standards to ensure the best products reach the people who need them.
Vestergaard is committed to defining the role of the private sector in doing good. We believe that corporates can and should have responsibility at the core of their missions. On the operational front, we have been a member of the UN Global Compact since 2007 and embrace its code of conduct to protect human rights, maintain fair labor practices and safe work environments, respect employees and business partners, defend the environment and root out corruption.
