Singapore – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, is reinforcing its commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by launching a new program in Singapore that is designed to improve access to healthcare.
The Better Me, Better World platform, which launches today, will give Singaporean consumers the opportunity to vote on the health and healthcare causes that Philips will support through the work of its Philips Foundation in 2018, as well as access to a range of personal benefits.
Addressing health topics ranging from community access to healthcare, first aid training and ensuring healthy lifestyles for children are at the heart of the Philips Foundation’s mission to reduce health inequality through meaningful innovation. It does this by deploying the expertise, knowledge and innovative skills of Philips in collaborative projects with humanitarian organizations, such as the International Committee of the Red Cross to design, adopt and deploy solutions that are sustainable and inclusive.
Singaporean consumers who use the platform to cast their vote on the initiatives that the Philips Foundation will support will also be rewarded with personal benefits to help them lead healthier lives too – such as discounts on their next purchase at the Philips online store.
