Nichent believes strongly in the importance of responsible and accountable governance and decision-making. We are guided by the strategies and direction of national and global bodies seeking to build a more equitable, sustainable future.
Our commitment to advancing the UN Sustainability Goals:
The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development provides a blueprint for a peaceful, prosperous future for people and the planet. At Nichent, we’ve incorporated the goals of this blueprint into our own organizational objectives. We’re committed to advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with a particular focus on the following targets:
Our commitment to advancing Canada’s National Adaptation Strategy:
The climate crisis is severe and escalating. In the words of the Minister of Environment and Climate Change of Canada, “this is a critical time—the choices we make and the actions we take today will help decide the future of communities, livelihoods, the environment, and the economy.”
Nichent is dedicated to promoting good health in the face of the climate risk. Here’s what we’re focused on:
- Implementing clean, green, and efficient practices at our manufacturers and suppliers
- Transitioning to low-carbon and sustainable modes of transportation and delivery
- Taking action to address the impacts of climate change on Canadians’ health
- Ensuring equitable responses to the impacts of climate change on marginalized and historically underserved populations
Nichent is guided by five core values:
We believe in equitable access to high quality healthcare, and in pushing the boundaries of the industry. We ensure that healthcare professionals have access to the goods they need most in order to provide every Canadian with the highest possible quality of care. To us, accessibility means ensuring that healthcare services and products are readily available, affordable, and usable for all individuals.
As we confront the challenges posed by climate change, resource depletion, and environmental degradation, we recognize that businesses have a crucial role to play in mitigating these issues and shaping a more sustainable future. We are committed to responding to the risks that climate change presents to our health and our world. We prioritize adaptability in our approach to sustainability, and are committed to minimizing our carbon footprint and integrating climate resilience into our business model.
Equitable, accessible, and high-quality healthcare relies on equitable, accessible, and high-quality equipment. We acknowledge that systemic disparities, barriers, and inequities can significantly impact an individual’s access to healthcare and their overall health outcomes. By prioritizing inclusion in our work, we aim to eliminate these disparities and create a healthcare system that serves everyone. At Nichent, we work hard to protect everyone, every way we can — in the pursuit of equitable healthcare, no one should be left behind.
Connection and collaboration are fundamental pillars of our approach to delivering the equipment that Canadians need most. We understand that meeting the healthcare demands of our population requires a collective effort. By establishing strong connections and fostering relationships with stakeholders in the health, public, non-profit, and private sectors, we ensure the efficient and effective supply of critical healthcare equipment.
Transparency is the backbone of our practice. We strive to foster a culture of assurance and integrity where our employees, customers, investors, and partners communicate with clarity and ease, ensuring the highest-quality results and pushing the possibilities of the health sector.
