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.
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 funded 555 endoscopies in India for people in need
We funded a total of 555 endoscopies in two different hospitals in India, enabling patients to have their symptoms clarified and thus receive treatment according to their needs.
Ovesco employees donate €3.314,05 to the foundation „help for sick children“
Over the Christmas period 2019, the manufacturing & operations department at Ovesco Endoscopy AG organized a bake sale. Home-made cakes and pastries were sold for a symbolic price of 1 Euro supplemented with an additional voluntary donation. This sum was donated to the Tübingen University Children’s Hospital’s charity “Help for Sick Children”.
The foundation helps families who have financial difficulties due to the serious illness or handicap of their child.
We are committed to the preservation of our environment and to the use of renewable energy.
Ovesco Endoscopy contributes e.g. with company building, operation and mobility behavior to energy saving and carbon reduction. Our company headquarters is as a low-energy building according to the E55 energy standard. Compared to other buildings of a similar dimension, our building uses approx. half the energy. In addition, we operate a highly developed photovoltaic system and purchase remaining electricity from 100% renewable sources.
With our CO2-compensated sales vehicle fleet, the Ovesco sales representatives visit our customers with zero overall emission.
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.
Climate neutral sales vehicle fleet
In cooperation with ARKTIK, Ovesco Endoscopy AG supports climate protection projects, such as the re-forestation in Colombia. The project enables our sales fleet to be carbon-neutral by compensating with planting trees.
ARKTIK respects the social concerns of the local population and benefits the natural habitat and conservation of species.
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.
The coexistence of family and career is an important topic, especially in a performance-oriented environment. It is our concern to support the compatibility of family and career and to reduce conflicts between professional development and a fulfilled private life.
Since 2018 Ovesco Endocsopy is awarded with the “familyNET award” for being a “family-conscious company”. Our organisation has been assessed in the areas of leadership, human resources development, organisation, communication, financial and family services, health and community involvement, etc.
For the parents among our employees, the MiniCampus offers a company day care facility at our corporate headquarters.
Certified as a family-friendly company
For Ovesco it is important to be supportive towards our employees throughout all stages of life. The FamilyNET Award of Baden-Wuerttemberg was given to us, following an appraisal process, where leadership competence, workplace organization, and benefits for families are analyzed and regularly audited.
Ovesco Minicampus – on-site daycare center for kids
For the parents among our employees, the MiniCampus offers a company day care facility at our corporate headquarters, looking after their children.
This allows parents to better handle the coexistence of family and career.
