Abbott is one of Ireland’s leading health care companies, employing about 3,000 people across ten sites. Abbott has been focused on helping the people of Ireland live their best lives since 1946
Abbott exists to help people live the best lives they can through the power of health. We believe that good health is the starting point for everything people can accomplish, and our business is built around delivering innovative solutions and opening up possibilities that can push healthcare further, empowering more people to achieve their potential. For Abbott, this begins with being responsible, sustainable and inclusive. Our approach to Global Citizenship focuses on doing the right things, for the long term, for the benefit of everyone who relies on our products and services. At the same time, we work hard to maximize the impact of our business in creating fuller lives and stronger communities around the world.
The goal of our Global Citizenship strategy is to achieve sustainable growth, deliver innovative solutions and build stronger communities around the world to help more people live their best lives.
To be a responsible, sustainable and inclusive business Abbott is focused on delivering product excellence, improving access to products and safeguarding the environment. To achieve positive results in these three priority areas Abbott engages in responsible business practices, shared values initiatives and strategic philanthropy.
In communities large and small, Abbott seeks to make a significant and long-lasting difference in the quality of people’s lives. In 2015, Abbott employees in Ireland volunteered more than 7,000 hours through our Croi an Óir volunteering programme. Abbott wants to ensure that our strategic philanthropic activities make our local communities a better place and provide a deeper societal impact and allow our employees to share their skills. We support a diverse range of community outreach projects, with particular emphasis on promoting science education at primary and secondary school.
