BraunAbility and Corporate Citizenship
Since 1972, BraunAbility has been dedicated to helping wheelchair users and their families stay connected to the people and places that matter most in life. Our mission, Devoted to Making Life a Moving Experience for All, captures our vision of building a world that is accessible to anyone with a physical disability. We are proud to serve a corporate mission that impacts society, but we recognize that BraunAbility also has a responsibility to improve the communities in which we live, work and do business.
United Nations Global Compact
That’s why BraunAbility is committed to operating under the United Nations Global Compact Corporate Sustainability Leadership policy, which requires businesses to align operations under 10 fundamental principles for socially responsible and sustainable long-term success.
Preserving a healthy planet for future generations is a responsibility BraunAbility takes very seriously as the leader of the mobility industry. That’s why we have committed to annually reducing our waste disposal and consumption of water, electricity and natural gas. BraunAbility is committed to educating our employees about our efforts to improve environmental sustainability as well as ways they can help advance our efforts.
BraunAbility Corporate Values
Our culture is centered around five core values. These core values and the associated expectations are reflected in our Code of Conduct, which highlights the principles behind how BraunAbility conducts business. Quite simply, we do what’s right. This is the legacy and compass instilled in us by our founder, Ralph Braun, and it still holds true today. Our employees share a commitment to these values and principles, and we expect the same of our partners and suppliers.
