CSR approach

We have always acted to preserve everyone's health and facilitate access to care. Thus, sustainable development is placed at the center of all practices.

Ethics and responsibility are among the founding values ​​of RAFFIN MEDICAL.

Since 2014, we have been a member of the United Nations Global Compact and we are committed to respecting the 10 principles relating to human rights, international labor standards, the environment and the fight against corruption.

In 2018, we obtained the “e-Engagé RSE” self-assessment from AFNOR, based on the ACESIA questionnaire with a score of 62/100. This made it possible to measure the level of performance of the company in terms of social responsibility based on the international standard ISO 26000 which describes the guidelines relating to CSR.

The following year, we integrated CSR into the 5-year business plan. A network of CSR correspondents was then created with 10 volunteer employees to engage in the implementation and monitoring of actions. Our CSR action plan is built around five pillars that cover the 10 principles of the Global Compact:

  • Responsible purchasing
  • Well-being and internal performance
  • Communication on CSR
  • Education and territorial anchoring
  • Waste optimization

In 2020, we joined the regional association FORSE (Facilitation for Organizations in Social and Environmental Responsibility), an innovative initiative, which aims to mobilize, help all actors to move forward on this path, and to network them.

For several years, we have been evaluated by the CAHPP (purchasing group for private or public Health and Medico-Social establishments) on the green index based on the sustainable development strategy of companies. In 2022, we obtained the A++ green index (91/100), which means that we are committed to "a sustainable development approach built and structured, around at least one of the 3 pillars of social responsibility (environmental, economic or social)”.

We are also members of the AFNOR Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes CSR Challenges Club to discuss with other member companies around thematic and friendly meetings to take stock of major CSR challenges, discuss best practices and benefit from feedback. 'experiences.

Through all of its commitments, RAFFIN MEDICAL takes into account the 17 Sustainable Development Goals in its practices and wishes to participate in change.

With the aim of continuously improving our CSR approach, we want to structure our social responsibility strategy according to the international standard ISO 26000, which defines the guidelines relating to CSR. This project is carried out with each department of the company and the members of the network of CSR ambassadors.
