The Mediclinic Group is committed to being a good corporate citizen and believes that sustainability must be integrated in
its business strategy, focusing not only on its financial output, but also on managing and utilising
social and environmental resources efficiently to ensure a sustainable business in the long term.
Mediclinic’s track record on delivering growth and creating long-term value in all its business operations in Southern
Africa, Switzerland and the UAE is testament to its strategy of being a long-term player and delivering
a sustainable business. While growth, profitability and creating shareholder value are certainly major
strategic drivers, this cannot be achieved unless the Group offers efficient, effective, appropriate
and evidence-based clinical services to its patients; follows ethical business practices, values its
employees by following fair labour practices and offering competitive remuneration, training and development
opportunities; respects the communities within which the Group operates and contributes to the well-being
of society; and carefully manages its impact on the environment by focusing on its carbon footprint,
use of energy and water resources and waste management.
Through the Group’s sustainability efforts Mediclinic believes that it will:
maintain its business integrity;
continue creating shareholder value and growing the business;
offer improved access to capital by providing a responsible investment proposition;
effectively manage its risks;
increase its ability to attract and retain staff;
effectively manage and minimise its impact on the environment; and
maintain and improve the confidence, trust and respect of its stakeholders.
The Group Sustainable Development Policy, Group Environmental Policy and Code of Business Conduct and Ethics codify Mediclinic’s
commitment to conducting business responsibly, which are reviewed annually.
The following material sustainability issues have been identified and are addressed in the Sustainable Development
Report published annually and available in the Investor Relations section of the website:
provide quality healthcare services
address the shortage of healthcare practitioners;
create and sustain shareholder value;
responsible use of natural resources; and
governance and corporate social responsibility.
