Sustainability
Netcare aims to conduct its business in a manner which contributes to the development of our people, communities and country, while continuously seeking ways to reduce our impact on the environment.
Sustainable development requires that we are mindful of the future impacts our business will have, beyond the business focus of profitability and creating shareholder value. To this end, we invest significantly in healthcare-related social initiatives, and actively engage the public sector to form partnerships that increase access to quality healthcare.
Mindful of the economic inequalities which persist in South Africa today, we are committed to transformation in our business and the broader healthcare sector. Furthermore, we are working to reduce our environmental impact in the face of the threats of global climate change and the depletion of natural resources, to do our part in ensuring that future generations can continue to meet their needs.
