Our Philosophy

Medline has a broad understanding of corporate social responsibility believing that it spans social, environmental and economic issues.

As a player in the medical device industry, we acknowledge that we are in a position to make a positive contribution to the global sustainable development agenda. With that in mind, in the context of Medline’s European operations corporate social responsibility is synonymous with sustainability.

Our CSR focus areas are:

  • Labour and human rights (ethical supply chains)
  • Environmental initiatives
  • Breast cancer awareness
  • Charitable giving


Key influences on Medline’s approach to CSR include the United Nations Global Compact Principles, the United Nations sustainable development goals, ISO 26000:2010 and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. We believe it is important to be aware of, and aligned with, international best practices.

To support us in our CSR journey, we actively participate in the following platforms:
