With healthcare systems around the world under increasing pressure, we deliver innovative, integral technology solutions that are designed to improve the quality and delivery of care while lowering cost. Our deep clinical and consumer insights and technology leadership across the health continuum, as well as our commitment to co-creation, are core to our business and truly differentiate us.

Helping people live a healthier life

All around the world, people are looking for new ways to take greater control of their personal health and well-being. Ways to cook healthily, to breathe clean air, to ensure good oral health. Ways to care for themselves and their families at home.

Philips play a key role in this consumerization of healthcare, expanding our offering to help consumers make healthier choices every day.

At Philips, we strive to make the world healthier and more sustainable through innovation. Our goal is to improve the lives of 2.5 billion people a year by 2025. We will be the best place to work for people who share our passion. Together, we will deliver superior value for our customers and shareholders.



Creating innovations that matter to people

Since the introduction of the first Philips light bulb more than 120 years ago, innovation and a people-centric approach have always been at the core of our company.

Our commitment is to deliver new healthcare and personal care technologies, as well as innovative and locally relevant consumer products that make a real difference to our customers, consumers and stakeholders across the globe. We believe that the best way for us to do this, is through deep understanding of people’s needs and desires.    

When we bring the two together – people and innovation – we create the next generation of technology and things that people truly want and need. These are meaningful innovations that help people to be healthy, live well and enjoy life. This sets us apart and makes us Philips.
Why we believe there is always a way to make life better.



Sustainability is at the core of our company’s vision

In 2012 we set ourselves an ambitious target to improve the lives of three billion people a year by 2025 by making the world healthier and more sustainable through innovation. Since then, we have been concentrating our minds, shaping our strategy and rallying our teams to improve lives. We’re on track: by the end of 2015, we calculated that we have improved two billion lives - that's one in every four people!

As part of society, all of us – including companies – have an obligation to contribute to the positive state of the world. That is why we at Philips have committed to support UN Sustainable Development Goals, specifically SDG 3 to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being and SDG 12 to enable sustainable consumption and production patterns. Meanwhile, the Philips Foundation continues to create tools and run projects that improve the lives of the world’s most disadvantaged peoples and communities.
