What is Responsible Health Initiative?

The Responsible Health Initiative (RHI) was founded in 2018 by leading companies within the industry, in an effort to accelerate RHI members’ efforts in boosting sustainability in their value chains, while creating benefits for their trading partners.

RHI has adopted a proven model of industry collaboration that leverages sharing of best practices and processes, drives a common understanding across the industry, and uses common tools to create efficiencies that improve sustainability performance across its members’ collective supply chains.

Mission and Vision

The mission of RHI is to use collaboration and technology to improve the visibility, efficiency and sustainability impact of the global health supply chain.

The shared vision for RHI includes:

  • Harmonizing industry standards for online CSR assessments, with reliable indicators and global benchmarks
  • Adopting a common platform to ease sharing of CSR performance  among suppliers/third parties and RHI members
  • Implementing shared tools to boost supplier engagement and improvement plans
  • Working together to reduce risk and increase visibility  in the supply chain

Organizations in the Responsible Health Initiative will be equipped to access untapped sustainability potential across the industry supply chain, identify high-performing suppliers and best practices, reduce operational disruptions, mitigate risk, and drive value with suppliers.
