UN’s Global Goals
Our contribution to the UN’s Global Goals
MedCap has analysed the 17 Global Goals to determine which of them we should focus on in our operations and how we can integrate them into our business. The analysis has been conducted from the perspectives of impact, opportunity and how we create value for patients and users of our products. As a result of the analysis we will focus on the following 6 objectives in the years ahead:
Goal 3 Good health and well-being
All companies in the MedCap Group work to develop and provide medical devices and pharmaceuticals that contribute to more efficient healthcare, better health and increased well-being. The companies are in close contact with the healthcare system to understand the needs that exist and work on preventive interventions to meet medical demand.

Medcap’s objective is to create stable, sustainable growth. We see it as a
matter of course to offer decent working conditions to our employees and support inclusion in the labour market by several companies in the Group providing individuals with disabilities with better conditions to perform their work.
Goal 10 Reduced inequalities
MedCap’s subsidiary Abilia contributes to equality and diversity by increasing

Goal 12 Responsible consumption and production
MedCap’s manufacturing subsidiaries are making the transition to more sustainable packaging solutions and work continuously to optimise packaging to reduce the environmental impact of the transport chain.
