About Us

UN Sustainable Development Goals

The Cooper Companies supports the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to make significant progress on the world’s most pressing economic, social and environmental challenges by 2030. The UN has called for broad-based support of the SDGs, including active involvement by the private sector. The Cooper Companies is concentrating our current efforts on three SDGs that most directly relate to our business and to which we can add the most value.

We strive to operate in an environmentally responsible manner from production to delivery. We value using resources responsibly and minimizing our impact on the Earth.

This means exploring ways to conserve water and energy, reducing, reusing and recycling materials, and empowering our people to make environmentally-conscious choices. It’s the right thing to do for employees, customers, business and our planet.

A sustainable future cannot be achieved by acting alone. Every great business is about forging relationships. We do this based on honesty, candor, trust and respect.

In all healthcare settings, Cooper partners with clinicians and practitioners to understand and identify the solutions they need.

We’re also reaching out to organizations and charities, both globally and locally, and providing them with the financial or other assistance they need.

We are in the process of conducting further analysis of our corporate responsibility efforts and commitments. Our findings will help us determine where we could do more to support the UN SDGs.
