HUS Logistics is one of the profit areas providing nonmedical support services at HUS. Our services include material management, supply logistics, hospital logistics and medical technology.
In addition, we provide services to the HUS member municipalities and the Helsinki University Hospital Specific Catchment Areas that have signed a service agreement with us. The HUS Logistics profit area is managed and developed by the director, assisted by the management group. As of July 1, 2021, HUS procurement services were transferred from HUS Logistics to the HUS Joint Authority Administration. This Responsibility Report describes activities by both HUS Logistics and HUS Procurement in 2021.
In 2021, HUS Logistics had a turnover of about EUR 329 million and employed 516 persons as at December 31, 2021.
Through procurement agreements, HUS Logistics manages global supply chains. Some of the products we procure are manufactured in countries classified as risk countries (BSCI classification), and one of the focus areas of our corporate social responsibility is to ensure that the conditions in which these products are manufactured do not violate human rights or the ILO fundamental principles and rights at work. Moreover, in all procurements and other operations we consider key environmental aspects in accordance with the HUS environmental policy.
This report provides a cross-section of the corporate social, economic and environmental responsibility in HUS Logistics and HUS Procurement operations. This is our fourth Responsibility Report. We have published responsibility reports on our activities in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
