Corporate Social Responsibility
We at Vestergaard Frandsen are committed to the goal of basic disease prevention by providing safe drinking water and protection from malaria and other vector-borne diseases. We have turned our commitment into action by innovating technological breakthroughs for the most vulnerable people on earth, with our products: LifeStraw®, PermaNet®, and ZeroFly®. These innovations have the potential to revolutionize health management as we know it, fighting preventable diseases and putting an end to the needless suffering of millions.
In making this commitment, Vestergaard Frandsen has managed to turn humanitarian responsibility into core business. Strong support of the Millennium Development Goals, particularly reducing child mortality and combating HIV/AIDS, malaria, and reducing the number of people without access to safe drinking water, is a defining characteristic of our company.
This is a large part of what makes us different. We innovate for the developing world, rather than developing products for wealthier regions, and then try to adapt to those who actually need it the most.
