<p>We strive for Healthcare Access to improve underserved patients’ lives, because where you live shouldn’t determine if you live.</p>
<p>With the right digital ecosystem from Siemens Healthineers, large numbers of patients in hard-to-reach areas can benefit from remote healthcare. Our Digital Command Center (DCC) in China was put into use in September 2022 and provides timely response and convenient services in equipment training, clinical applications, and disease diagnosis and treatment.&nbsp;</p><p>Through the DCC, doctors in primary hospitals can easily connect with application training experts and clinical experts from many top tertiary hospitals, which help improve their skills and ability. As of the end of June 2023, the DCC has nearly 500 experts and a cumulative time of more than 1.5 million minutes of service covering hospitals across China.</p>
<p>A healthy population requires a healthy planet. We are committed to preserving our planet’s resources in our shared journey toward sustainability.</p>
<p>Promoting circularity is one way to achieve this. By applying circular approaches and repairing more than 30,000 parts for reuse, our Medical Electronics Return Center achieved CO<sub>2</sub> savings of approximately 11,300 tons in one year.&nbsp;</p><p>This includes more than 11,000 printed circuit board assemblies, more than 13,000 electronic components, and 6,000 computers. This equates to a new value of goods of around EUR 92 million.</p>
<p>Our employee voices and volunteer efforts are significant in shaping our sustainability strategy and initiatives, especially on climate action and broadening access to healthcare.</p>
<p>Our GREEN (Grass Roots Eco-Friendly Employee Network) teams, for example, have achieved remarkable results in different regions, including switching to innovative transportation methods that have reduced CO<sub>2</sub> emissions, encouraging sustainable practices in the cafeteria to minimize food waste, and implementing energy-saving initiatives.&nbsp;</p><p>The efforts of our GREEN Teams exemplify our employees’ dedication to investing in our planet and creating a more sustainable future.</p>
