Attendo publishes Annual Quality and Sustainability Report for 2017

Today Attendo has released its Annual Report for 2017. A new Annual Quality and Sustainability Report has also been released to show how Attendo contributes to the development of society in important areas.

- We want to show the most important challenges to society in care and health care and how Attendo actively is contributing to meet the demand for more beds in modern nursing homes in the Nordics. The fact that we have opened around one in every four new beds in care for older people over the last five years in Finland and Sweden clearly show that Attendo plays a key part in how society can meet demographic challenges, says Pertti Karjalainen, CEO of Attendo.

In 2011, Attendo was the first care company in the Nordics to publish a detailed Annual Quality Report of its care work. To meet new legislation on sustainability reporting, Attendo this year has release a consolidated Annual Quality and Sustainability Report.

Through a close stakeholder dialogue, Attendo has identified three areas of major importance for its sustainability work; Attendos contribution to development of society, to quality in care and healthcare and satisfied employees.

The report contains a detailed account of innovations and actions taken in the respective areas, as well as the most important actions and outcomes in areas such as human rights, anti-corruption and climate and environment.
