AQF MEDICAL Our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Statement

Our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) policy reflects our commitment to responsible business practices, striving for positive impacts on the planet, people, and communities.



AQF strives to carefully manage resources and continuously look to reduce negative environmental impacts throughout the entire supply chain.

  • Full traceability of raw materials throughout the supply chain
  • Resource-conserving production methods
  • Maximise recycling of waste
  • Introducing bio-based alternatives to petroleum-based materials
  • Use of local suppliers to shorten transport distances

Our procurement function is the primary interface with our upstream supply chain so it has a decisive role in shaping our ESG footprint directly through purchase decisions and indirectly by its influence on product design. By optimising local sourcing we aim to minimise shipping and storage, and as a result, reduce emission and carbon usage.



Fostering openness, sustainability, and respect are our key objectives. Everyone is valued and we strive to work as one team. We invest in our people and their working environment by creating and maintaining a safe and healthy working environment and ensuring their ongoing professional and personal development.

Our aim is to create a workplace environment where there is mutual trust and respect and where every person feels responsible for the performance and reputation of our company.

People and culture


We embrace and value diversity in all forms, whether gender, age, ethnicity or cultural background. Equal opportunity is integral to our recruitment process. We aim to develop a diverse talent community, and we have people from many different nationalities working as part of AQF Medical. We seek to maintain a positive workplace free from discrimination and harassment. We champion pay equity and mutual respect, promoting an environment of fairness and equality.


Our approach to ensuring a safe and healthy workplace include the following commitments:
