Our focused approach
to ESG

In 2020, our management team worked with external consultants to complete a preliminary materiality assessment. This process guided us to reflect on our most significant ESG risks and opportunities from both SYNLAB and our stakeholders’ perspectives.

We consulted a variety of internal leaders to get a clear definition and prioritisation of these topics. We also looked to well-established sources such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to consider relevant external perspectives. In subsequent assessments, we will seek and incorporate more external stakeholder perspectives, building on our foundational assessment. Our Material ESG Topics are divided into 3 main areas:
