Corporate Responsibility


At Merivaara, we are committed to helping people live better lives. We are actively working to create a world where people can feel safe by respecting both the environment and social responsibility.

It all starts with our own employees, how we can create a safe workplace where innovation thrives and at the same time provide healthcare professionals with solutions for a better life. We use processes and practices to support sustainability with a number of key performance indicators in order to continuously ensure safe working environment both to our own employees and to our partners. Indicators are continuously monitored and reported to personnel and the Board of Directors on a quarterly basis.


A safe working environment is at the core of Merivaara’s operations, and the management is committed to acting in such a way as to ensure the physical and mental well-being of the personnel.
