Sustainability governance

At Orthex, sustainability is driven by the Board of Directors, the CEO, and the Management Team. Progress in sustainability is part of the CEO’s and the Management Team’s incentive plans. The Board of Directors and the Management Team, including the CEO, review the company’s sustainability indicators monthly, with a more comprehensive review once a year. A three-year sustainability strategy is reviewed and confirmed annually.

Orthex’s sustainability strategy is implemented by a dedicated working team which sets targets for sustainability and monitors their progress. The working team is led by the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) and Operations Director (OD) who report directly to the CEO and are part of the Management Team. The team comprises of ESG Advisor and representatives of quality functions and, through the CMO and OD, covers production, procurement, marketing, product development, and commercial functions. The ESG Advisor is responsible for coordinating and development of the sustainability strategy of the company and development and implementation of sustainability initiatives in line with the sustainability strategy.

The everyday sustainability work at Orthex is integrated into all our operations and functions.
