At Integra, sustainability is a multi-dimensional aspiration, which has its roots in the very purpose of our existence â€“ providing affordable medicines to people around the country and meeting unmet medical needs through innovation. Our business, by its very nature, serves a social good, so we have a far deeper reason than profits alone to drive our performance.
For us, building a sustainable organization is not a trend we blindly follow; it is intrinsic to how we have operated for years. To us, a commitment to sustainability means a commitment to fulfilling our obligations to all of our stakeholders -- our customers & partners, employees, and society. Thus, while optimizing profitability may be one measurement of our performance, we also judge our success by our performance with regard to the communities in which we live and work, the environment and our employees. We understand that it is only by increasing value to all of these stakeholders that we can build an ever flourishing and lasting organization.
This is why we emphasize that Sustainability is not just the domain of Senior Management or the Sustainability Department, but it requires the support and enthusiasm of each stakeholder.
