Our Guiding Principals

At Ansell, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) means conducting business ethically and transparently and in ways that produce social, environmental, and economic benefits for communities around the world. In addition to ensuring that it conducts its business ethically and transparently, Ansell is committed to a number of sustainable and practical initiatives that are designed to make a positive and lasting contribution to the markets it serves and the community in general.

Ansell recognizes that its business impacts the community, the environment, and the wider economy. We believe that it is good business to operate in a way that recognizes these impacts and responds to them effectively. Ansell acknowledges the need to consider the risks and opportunities that they present for the Company. The Company is committed to understanding these impacts and ensuring its business minimizes any negative impacts arising from its operations.

Ansell recognizes that economic development needs to be aligned with the health and well-being of people, their communities and the environment. Ansell considers that it is sound business management for a company to address its social and environmental performance as well as economic performance.

In FY14, Ansell undertook an initial gap analysis of its CSR platform, strategy and respective components.   Working with Business for Social Responsibility (BSR), the Company reviewed various components of this program through the various lenses of CSR Strategy, Governance, Business Excellence, Environment, People and Community.   These lenses make up dozens of data points and various policy issues.  Over the course of FY15, Ansell will work with BSR and other stakeholders to further analyze priorities and identify best practices and areas of opportunity.  Leveraging the work of an internal CSR Working Group made up of all the regions, Global Business Units (GBU) and functions, the Company will then review this analysis and identify owners to progress the CSR strategy in the short and long-term.  

Working off the momentum in FY14 on developing enhanced processes for product donations, community engagement, tender requests and other initiatives, the Company will continue to build toward centralizing metrics in FY15 and beyond.

Ansell Responds to Philippines Typhoon Disaster

csr-case-study-opt2

In January, 2014, Ansell announced that it donated medical and industrial products to Direct Relief in response to the Haiyan typhoon disaster. The medical products, donated from facilities throughout Ansell global operations, include 1.7 million pieces of medical exam gloves and more than 680,000 pairs of surgical gloves to assist in Direct Relief’s support of local health services. In addition, industrial and specialty market gloves will be utilized in recovery and rebuilding efforts. This product donation constitutes the largest product donation to a single organization in response to a natural disaster in the Company’s history.

Products were shipped from Ansell facilities throughout the world, including Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Belgium, United States and Australia. Healthcare products include surgical (synthetic and latex) and exam gloves such as the Ansell GAMMEX®, DermaPrene®, and MICRO-TOUCH® brands. Industrial products include medium-to heavy-duty work gloves from the Ansell NITRASAFE® product line. Specialty Markets gloves include Projex® Do-it-Yourself work gloves.

Ansell's extraordinary steps to source rapidly and provide surgical, exam, and industrial gloves in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan's destruction have been amazing and critically important,” said Thomas Tighe, President and Chief Executive Officer at Direct Relief. “Gloves are essential items for patient care and infection control in the health emergency caused by Typhoon Haiyan. Direct Relief is so deeply thankful that Ansell's leadership and team recognized that they were in a unique position to assist in this crisis and that they responded in an unprecedented way that is so helpful to people in the Philippines in their time of critical need.”

This effort is consistent with the commitment of Ansell in responding to natural disasters and providing support as necessary. Ansell has responded to other major disasters in the past, including Hurricane Katrina, the fires in Australia, and the tsunami in South East Asia.
