  • It is part of Coloplast’s DNA to respect the individual and to secure equal opportunities for all. We believe that diversity leads to better innovation, performance and decisions. Inclusion and diversity should be ingrained in our culture and we therefore, integrate inclusion and diversity into all people processes such as recruitment, performance evaluation and succession planning. The value of diversity will show when it is led right, and we have, therefore, integrated inclusive leadership into our leadership promise and expect all leaders to master this as we evolve how we lead.

    Coloplast has restated our commitment to inclusion and diversity by joining the CEO pledge together with the other members of the Danish Diversity Council. In addition, our policy on inclusion and diversity has been revised and published on our website here.
