Acelity’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitment reflects our ongoing dedication to our vision to restore people’s lives. Our vision not only promotes a culture based on patient focus, but a culture of giving back and supporting the local communities in which employees live and work. That is why our nearly 5,000 global employees receive 16 hours of paid time to volunteer in service of helping others.
Community Outreach & Support
In our hometown of San Antonio where Acelity is headquartered, we support organizations like Communities In Schools and The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio. Nationally, we are focused on making a greater impact in the lives of families facing serious health issues, the military and their families, and those impacted by natural disaster and crisis. We also provide our V.A.C.® Therapy free of charge to more than 8,000 uninsured, low income patients each year as part of the Acelity CHARITY CARE LOANER™ Program.
Our CSR Pillars
Families Facing Serious Health Issues
We support various diabetes organizations and nonprofits who provide free accommodations in service of patients and families navigating serious health challenges.
Military and Their Families
Through our partnership with MVPvets, we help make the transition from military to civilian life a little easier for service members who are looking for meaningful employment after courageously serving our country.
Disaster and Crisis Support
Over the last year, because of our strong relationships across the continuum of care and our relationships with local, on-the-ground organizations, Acelity quickly responded with product donations and customer support to help restore the lives of people impacted by global tragic disasters. Each year we donate millions of dollars and products to help people who faced disasters and crises in areas like Boston, San Bernardino, Japan, Paris, Ecuador, Brussels and Orlando.
Acelity is dedicated to preserving the natural resources in which we live and work. We take seriously our responsibility to preserve the natural resources of the communities in which we live and work. As careful stewards of these resources, we continually strive to incorporate measures within the development, manufacture and delivery of our products and therapies that reduce the overall environmental impact of our process and our products. For example, we ensure the selection and deployment of fuel efficient vehicles within our service fleet, select and use ecologically friendly cleaning materials in our global service centers, select suppliers geographically placed to minimize delivery distances, utilize renewable resources in the design and manufacturing of our products and in our daily business practices, and facilitate source reduction and waste minimization best practices throughout our manufacturing process and waste disposal activities, including recycling whenever possible.
Through our active role in Washington with the medical device trade association, AdvaMed, we have regularly advocated on important issues. We recently supported the 21st Century Cures Act, which creates an expedited pathway for breakthrough technology, bringing new hope to patients in critical need.
We will continue to act in a manner that minimizes the environmental impact of our business operations, actively encourages support of charitable and educational activities in the community, and maintains the highest standards of integrity, leadership and behavior in all that we do. In doing this, we demonstrate our company’s shared values of being United, Authentic, Purposeful and Courageous.
