Getinge has operations in many locations across the world, and
its employees represent a variety of cultures and backgrounds.
With this comes responsibility – both locally and globally.

the Group’s long-term earnings capacity and strengthen the
company’s competitiveness. The sustainability efforts have a

customers and employees, which is crucial for the continued
development of Getinge.

provides excellent opportunities for follow-ups and comprises the
basis for decisions concerning environmental goals and activities
