Thermo Fisher Scientific
Thermo Fisher Scientific is the world leader in serving science and with that position comes a great responsibility to the global community. We are committed to making a significant positive impact on society. Our products and services provide our customers help to tackle some of the world’s greatest challenges. We also contribute by operating responsibly and by giving back to the communities in which we live and work.
Reflecting our commitment to humanity, our stakeholders and to the environment, our CSR program focuses on ensuring ethical practices in our business and relationships, making a difference in our local communities through employee volunteerism and our STEM education as well as innovating to serve our customers whilst minimising our environmental impact.
Through our STEM education program, we reached over 1500 students in delivering educational scientific experiments. This included packing and donating 650 STEMcredible Science kits, 170 DNA extraction and 250 Paper-Chromatography experiments. By committing to a Zero Waste initiative in our offices across Australia and New Zealand, we helped divert 75% of waste from landfill. Our commitment allowed us to be recognised at Thermo Fisher Scientific’s annual CSR summit in 2018 and 2019 amongst over 100 CSR teams across the globe as well as take home the prestigious Australian Business Awards 2018 and 2019 in the Community Contribution category.
