Sofia Med has incorporated the principles of Sustainability in its business operations, thus recognising that its long-term growth can only be achieved through Sustainable Development. Concern for employee health and safety, respect and protection of the environment, comprehensive coverage of customer needs and harmonious coexistence with the local communities in which it operates are the main issues of Sustainability of Sofia Med.

The Sustainability Policy of Sofia Med is in accordance with the Company values of responsibility, integrity, transparency, effectiveness and innovation, and is determined by the Top Management, which is committed to the :

  • implementation of the Sustainability Policy at all levels and in all the Company operating entities.
  • strict compliance with the  legislation in force and full implementation of standards, policies, internal guidelines and procedures applied by the Company as well as other commitments, arising from voluntary agreements, countersigned and accepted by Sofia Med.
  • two-way and open communication with all stakeholders in order to identify and record their needs and expectations.
  • provision of a  safe and healthy working environment for our people, partners and any third party involved.
  • protection of human rights and provision of a work environment of equal opportunities, free from any discrimination.

  • cooperation and support of local society aiming to contribute to the sustainable development of the local communities in which we operate.

In order to realize the aforementioned commitment, Sofia Med voluntarily and responsibly has been planning and implementing the relative programs, while, at the same time, setting strategic priorities, which focus on the following areas of Sustainability of the Company:
