Since 1963, Cook Medical has been providing minimally invasive medical devices to physicians around the world, to improve patient care. Our commitment to improving people’s lives extends beyond the patients we serve to the communities in which we operate. We do this not only because it is good business, but because we believe that being a good corporate citizen is the right thing to do.
All of our European locations actively support their local community through charitable donations, sponsorships, and community engagement activities. Our employees have been at the forefront of these initiatives, and we are proud of what they have achieved.
‘I would like to thank our employees who helped us to reach many of our CSR goals. Everything we’ve achieved is due to those who care about our environment, our communities, and the world we live in. It’s uplifting to see that we have so many employees who want to make a positive difference.’
Bill Doherty, Executive Vice President for Cook Medical Europe

CSR and sustainability are complex areas that touch every part of our business. To focus our efforts and ensure we have a meaningful impact, we have focused our strategy on three priority areas.
With a growing workforce and product portfolio, it has never been more important to recognise the impact we have on the world around us. We’re excited to be guiding Cook’s global CSR commitments in Europe. Our charitable and community activities may vary by our location, but together we are committed to enhancing the health and quality of life for the people we work with and serve, protecting the environment, and enabling social development where we operate.
