Care to Care selection
At Mediq, we are passionate about offering more sustainable alternatives without compromising quality or performance. Our Care to Care selection showcases products from our own Mediq Own Brands (MOB) portfolio, as well as those from our trusted partners who share our commitment in transparency and accountability. To be included in the Care to Care selection, products must: have an ecolabel, be made out of recycled or biobased material; be biodegradable or reusable; or resource use must be reduced at production.
We ensure ethical production and minimal environmental impact
We deliver products with minimal environmental impact – keeping circularity as our guiding principle - that are ethically produced.
Minimal environmental impact
Minimal environmental impact will be achieved by growing our Care to Care selection: an assortment assembled keeping the circularity framework as the guiding principle. In parallel, recycled, and recyclable primary and secondary packaging material will be achieved by working together with suppliers.

Ethical production will be governed into our growing responsible sourcing program consisting of an awarding phase (screening), contracting phase (supplier code of conduct), supplier assessments phase (self-assessment or audit), and- when required - corrective action planning (Following a Plan Do Check Act Cycle).
2025: All contracted suppliers have a code of conduct in place.
2027: All contracted Private Label suppliers will be audited every other three years. Non Private Label suppliers will be audited based on the outcome of a yearly risk assessment.
2030: Ethical sourcing is fully anchored in our supply base and everything we do. We deliver on a rich pipeline of sustainability initiatives with our suppliers.
