  • Ethical clinic

    We believe that a health institution ought to set an example in numerous fields, as s key player dedicated to its patients, an employer and important customer, as well as in its capacity of a producer of waste and environmental nuisance, a consumer of natural resources and energy, etc.

     

    It is on the basis of this observation that the Pasteur Clinic has since 2009 been firmly committed to its sustainable development drive, by taking concrete, measurable, enterprising measures.

     

    In observing and effectively establishing our patients’ rights, we have also added an ethical dimension to our everyday actions and the manner in which we view our responsibility to future generations.

  • 4 building blocks

    The focal points of our work hinge on the following four key aspects:

     

    - Social: improving health and wellbeing in the workplace, involving professionals in the development project, providing training, ensuring safety at work
    - Corporate social responsibility: getting our stakeholders (patients, in-house and external professionals) involved in our effort 
    - Economic: managing our costs, ensuring the profitability of our investments, reducing our energy consumption costs
    - Environmental: reducing our environmental impact and providing care without creating pollution. Continuous improvement and pollution prevention are the bedrock of this approach.

     

    With this in mind, we have defined objectives for the areas relating to waste, effluent, purchasing, prevention and health, energy and greenhouse gases.

  • The clinic’s positioning

    With the support of its regulatory bodies and as a member of C2DS (Committee for Sustainable Development in Healthcare), the Pasteur Clinic conducts its activities within a virtuous circle. It contributes to Two for Ten.

     

    Consistent with its exacting standards, the Pasteur Clinic upholds its commitment to sustainable development in 2013 via EMAS certification, in partnership with the Ministry of Ecology. The clinic is also the second health institution in France to obtain this certificate, not to mention the ONLY health institution in France to simultaneously hold ISO 14001 and EMAS certifications (to date).

     

    In early 2012, the Pasteur Clinic was listed among the 22 French health institutions most committed to sustainable development, according to l’Express magazine, together with the C2DS.

     

    For the purposes of practical application and in order to promote the environmental measures instituted, the Pasteur Clinic in October 2011 became the 8th health institution in France to become ISO 14001-certified.
