The people of Cardinal Health work every day knowing that our customers are counting on us to take care of the business behind healthcare – to drive efficiency through the system and to offer cost-effective solutions that help customers thrive. Patient lives often depend on our doing what we say we’ll do – with accuracy, quality, integrity and appropriate urgency. That is not a mission we take lightly.
We believe that by conducting our business in the right way, we can create value for all our stakeholders. From our unique vantage point, we can collaborate with provider customers, manufacturers and suppliers to improve not only healthcare but also the health and well-being of our workplace, our employees and our communities around the globe.
We challenge ourselves to best utilize our assets, expertise and influence to make our communities stronger and our world more sustainable, while governing our activities as a good corporate citizen in compliance with all regulatory requirements and with a belief that doing “the right thing” serves everyone. Specifically, we are making meaningful investments that support:
- Environmental sustainability;
- Efficiency and integrity in our supply chain and the products and services we offer;
- Strong, vital and healthy communities; and
- A healthy, inclusive and diverse workplace for our employees
We are compiling this information to share with you our progress on this journey. This website is an important step towards more deeply engaging with our employees, shareholders, customers and communities on critical sustainability issues.
I think you’ll agree that while we’ve achieved a great deal, there is still much work to be done. I thank our more than 36,000 employees for their dedication and tremendous service to our customers, our environment, our communities and one another. And I look forward to what we can accomplish together.
