Corporate Responsibility

We are fully committed to fulfilling our corporate responsibility towards people, society and the environment.
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.

 

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.

555 Endoscopies for India

To err is human – to help is, too!

Ovesco’s donation will enable 555 endoscopic interventions in India. Our aim is to finance high quality diagnostic and endoscopic treatments for people in need.

We are committed to the preservation of our environment and to the use of renewable energies.

Within the framework of the “Tübinger Klimaschutzpakt” (Climate Protection Pact), Ovesco Endoscopy contributes to climate protection and energy saving. By designing our company headquarters as a low-energy building according to the E55 energy standard, we are helping to further reduce the energy-related CO2 emissions of the university city. In addition, we operate a state-of-the-art photovoltaic system with which we make our clean-room production facility, among other things, climate neutral.

With our CO2-compensated sales fleet, the Ovesco consultants visit our customers in a climate-neutral way. We achieve this by co-financing reforestation projects, for example in Colombia with our climate protection partner Arktik, which at the same time help the biodiversity.

Climate-neutral driving will be done by the field service vehicles of the ovesco-fleet as from now.

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 October 2020, 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.

Die Vereinbarkeit von Familie und Beruf ist gerade in einem leistungsorientierten Umfeld ein wichtiges Thema. Es ist uns ein Anliegen, die Vereinbarkeit von Familie und Beruf zu unterstützen und Konflikte zwischen beruflicher Entwicklung und erfülltem Privatleben abzubauen.
