Corporate Social Responsibility

Carrying Out Responsibility

At Teleflex, we believe that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is integral to living our Core Values and meeting our strategic and commercial objectives. CSR encompasses our aspirations as a company as well as the practical ways we address evolving Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) standards to identify and quantify our sustainability and societal impact. Our commitment to CSR builds trust with our key stakeholders, including employees, patients, customers, and investors. It improves our ability to manage risk, reduces costs, and benefits the communities where we operate as we continue to advance our purpose “to improve the health and quality of people’s lives.”

Our CSR Pillars serve as a framework as we move toward setting meaningful and measurable goals and enhancing transparency and disclosure relating to our CSR program. We are committed to ensuring responsibility remains a driving factor in our corporate governance. We continue to observe strong business ethics grounded in morality and compliance, while mitigating risks and seeking out and implementing environmentally sound operational practices. We focus on people through professional development and employee programs centered on health, well-being, inclusion and safety, and enhance our humanitarian aid and medical grants process to ensure a more effective approach. Finally, we encourage and provide volunteer opportunities in support of our local communities.
