At IVC Evidensia we care every day - for animals, our clients, our colleagues, and for a better environment. We believe a sustainable approach to what we do is who we are.
For an innovative, entrepreneurial company like ours, transforming how we do things to embed sustainability is an exciting challenge. It may not be easy, and we do not have all the answers yet. But it will force us to think differently, and to innovate. Moreover, it will add value, respond to client, employee and investor needs, and support efficiencies in our business.
Our Positive Pawprint strategy is the tool that helps us to do this. Our strategy is based on three pillars, People, Planet and Patients with 15 elements as illustrated below. Our strategy takes us beyond becoming the best veterinary group in the world, to becoming best veterinary group for the world.
