Corporate Responsibility

We are fully committed to fulfilling our corporate responsibility towards people, society and the environment. As innovators in medical technology, our most important contribution to society is discovering new methods for detecting and treating diseases.

Our commitment is based on the following four areas in particular:

  • Humanitarian aid and health promotion
  • Improving the compatibility of family and work
  • Supporting social diversity
  • Environmental and species protection

Through various projects and investments, we contribute to the support of social objectives.

Ovesco Endoscopy advocates an appreciative and unbiased working environment that values talent based on performance - regardless of age, gender, ethnicity origin and nationality, religion and belief or sexual orientation.

Internationality and diversity are a matter of course for us. A third of our employees have a history of migration in their families. At our headquarters in Tübingen alone, we employ people from 16 nations.

In July 2019, we signed the "Charta der Vielfalt", an initiative to promote diversity in companies and institutions, under the patronage of the German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel.

World map

We are pleased to be part of Germany's diversity network and to promote and shape diversity in our company. In this context, we addressed this issue as part of the German Diversity Day on 18th May 2021. The stainless steel world map (which hangs in our cafeteria in Tübingen) shows the different nationalities of our employees, the locations of our headquarters and subsidiaries as well as our distributors.

Diversity Quiz 2021

In May 2021, European Diversity Month took place for the first time. We wanted to know how well our employees know about diversity. Therefore, we challenged them to take part in the "Charta der Vielfalt"(Diversity Charter) DIVERSITY.Quiz. We are proud to announce that this activity was very well received by the Ovesco campus team. The proud winners of the quiz received small prizes - see picture.

 

As a medical technology company, the promotion of health is particularly important to us. That is why we support people in need with a wide variety of projects.

Ovesco Endoscopy and our employees regularly collect donations to support the "Help for Sick Children" foundation, a children's health initiative at the University Hospital of Tübingen. We do this through joint actions in favour of the foundation and thus support its work for sick children and their families.

We also carry out various other projects and initiatives to help people in need both regionally and internationally.

Ovesco Endoscopy is member of the Gastroenterlogy Foundation e.V.

With our membership in the Gastroenterology Foundation e.V., we support the establishment of endoscopy departments and the training of medical professionals in emerging countries.

We are committed to preserving our environment and using renewable energy.

Ovesco Endoscopy contributes to energy conservation and carbon reduction with its corporate building, operations and mobility behaviour. Our head office is a low-energy building according to the E55 energy standard and uses only about half the energy needed for normal buildings. We also operate a sophisticated photovoltaic system and buy 100% of the remaining electricity from renewable energy sources, making us completely carbon neutral from an electricity point of view.

With our CO2-compensated sales vehicle fleet, Ovesco sales representatives visit our customers in a carbon neutral way.

Corporate solar power plant and renewable energy sourcing

Ovesco Endoscopy operates a state-of-the-art solar power plant. The 160 310-Watt modules of the plant produce approx. 940 kWh/kWp per annum and thus save an equivalent of 41 t of CO2 emissions.

It achieves an almost complete coverage of the basic electrical requirements of the building. The rest of the electricity we use also comes from 100% renewable energy.

Photovoltaic not only benefits climate protection, but also the economic efficiency of power supply in industry.
