At Philips, we strive to make the world healthier and more sustainable through innovation. Our goal is to improve the lives of 3 billion people a year by 2025. We will be the best place to work for people who share our passion. Together we will deliver superior value for our customers and shareholders.

Understanding and meeting people’s needs:

Our starting point is always to understand the specific challenges local people face – whether they be a hospital director, a doctor, a nurse, a patient, a consumer, etc.

 

Having gained these deep insights, we then apply our outstanding innovation capabilities, strong brand, global footprint and talented and engaged people – often in value-adding partnerships – to deliver solutions that meet these needs and make the world healthier and more sustainable.

We measure the impact our solutions are having around the world with our independently verified Lives Improved model. We take a two-dimensional approach – social and ecological – to improving people’s lives. Products and solutions that directly support the curative (care) or preventive (well-being) side of people’s health, determine the contribution to the social dimension. The contribution to the ecological dimension is determined by means of our Green Product portfolio.

 

“Our mission is ​improving people's lives through meaningful innovation.”
