Since Avendra’s inception, we have always put corporate responsibility at the forefront of our value system. In the broadest sense, we aspire to value the interests of everyone engaged in Avendra’s business— from our customers and suppliers to our associates and our local community. Each stakeholder has a voice and a unique set of needs that we seek to fulfill.
Good business is responsible business.
Being a good corporate citizen is at the core of Avendra’s operating principles. We have a solid foundation, and we will continue to develop new ideas. We are committed to keeping an ongoing dialogue about this important topic at the center of our business strategy.
Good business is sustainable business.
Avendra is a for-profit business, but that doesn’t mean we look only at the bottom line. We believe that we can achieve economic success while reducing our impact on the environment. As we look for ways to operate our own business in a more sustainable manner, we are developing products, processes and knowledge that will help our customers and suppliers collaborate and operate their businesses in more sustainable ways as well.
Good business means giving back.
At Avendra, our associates take part in community programs such as food and supply drives for homeless shelters and fundraising for local charities. Our community programs give associates the chance to get to know their co-workers in a different capacity, while experiencing the fulfillment that comes with giving back and helping others.
