United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Cooper believes that conducting business in a socially and environmentally responsible manner is important to our long-term success and the future of our planet. That’s why we support the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs).

We are concentrating our current efforts on three SDGs we believe to be most relevant for our organization and our business activities.

• Our innovative medical products and technical expertise help meet evolving needs in the specialty healthcare market.

• CooperVision identifies current and emerging vision correction needs and develops advanced contact lenses to help improve the way people see each day.

• CooperSurgical’s extensive portfolio puts essential tools into the hands of clinicians, improving the health of women, babies and families.


• We aim to operate in an environmentally responsible manner. Using resources responsibly and minimizing our impact on the Earth means conserving water and energy, reducing, reusing and recycling materials and empowering our people to make environmentally-conscious choices. Everyone wins – employees, customers, the business and our planet.


A sustainable future thrives through cooperation and collaboration, and every great business is about fostering strong relationships. We do this through upholding high standards of honesty, candor, trust and respect.

Across the healthcare spectrum, Cooper partners with clinicians, practitioners and researchers to understand and identify novel solutions that will help change lives.

Globally and locally, our philanthropic initiatives help non-profits advance their efforts, giving them talent, insights and funding to pursue meaningful causes.
