Robert Metzke

Global Head of Sustainability, Philips

As a leading health technology company, Philips is committed to improving people's health and healthcare outcomes, as well as making care more accessible, inclusive, connected, and sustainable. As Global Head of Sustainability at Philips, Robert and his team drive the company’s strategy towards innovative, connected, accessible and sustainable business models (with a focus on digital and circularity) and embedding sustainable ways of working across the value chain. In particular, Robert and his team are driving all activities with regards to Philips' environmental responsibility, with a focus on climate action and circular economy, and expanding access to healthcare, in line with universally agreed United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In 2022, Robert was named by Business Insider as one was named one of the top 10 sustainability leaders for driving commitments around environmental, social, and governance issues. Under his leadership, Philips became carbon neutral in its operations in 2020. And very recently Philips became the first health technology company to have its Scope 3 greenhouse gas reduction targets assessed and approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), which means all the company’s climate change targets are now SBTi approved.
