AUSTRALIA IN 2020/2021

Climate change is a major threat to Australians’ health and wellbeing. Over the past two years, the continent has been ravaged by a series of extreme weather events, from the massive “Black Summer” and bushfires to the storms, cyclones and floods rampaging across the nation in 2021.

These calamities not only have the potential to cause illness, but they also exacerbate health conditions and cause rippling socioeconomic effects such as food shortages.

OUR COVID-19 CONTRIBUTIONS

Australia played a leading role in the scaling of national COVID-19 testing capacity, launching Australia’s first automated commercial real time PCR test in March 2020 and utilising our large base of instruments to rapidly develop testing solutions for the country and providing laboratories instant capacity for testing.


OUR IMPACT

OneRoche Climate Change Taskforce

  • Following the grievous natural disasters that ravaged Australia in 2020, we set up the OneRoche Climate Change Taskforce to supercharge our commitment to environmental protection.
  • We worked with our customers to reduce waste across our supply chain.

Roche Children Walk 2021

  • Over A$12,000 in employee contributions went to Camp Quality, a non-profit Australian charity helping children cope with a cancer diagnosis, or the diagnosis of a sibling or parent. 

Supporting diabetes patients at risk of stroke, heart disease

  • Through partnerships with organisations, and with support of healthcare advocates, guideline writers, and key opinion leaders, we are working to improve disease management and prevent re-hospitalisation through early diagnosis.
