Corporate social responsibility

NuVasive is committed to improving the lives of our employee Shareowners, customers and the communities in which we live and work. We prioritize environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters and have focused our corporate social responsibility efforts around three key pillars.

Company initiatives

Community and philanthropy

We believe in dedicating our time, talents and resources to organizations and programs that make positive differences in the lives of others.

We are proud of the incredible work of the NuVasive Spine Foundation (NSF), which supports life-changing spine surgery for individuals around the world with limited access to high quality medical treatment by working with surgeons to advance the quality of spine care in disadvantaged communities. NuVasive donates hardware, technology and services for NSF medical missions and to support NSF’s daily operations, and NuVasive Shareowners generously donate money and time to leverage our expertise in spine care to help communities in need.

In addition, through the NuVasive grants program, we support medical research and education, charitable and philanthropic endeavors.

Company initiatives

Diversity and inclusion

We believe our Shareowners are our greatest asset and that leveraging our different ideas, backgrounds, interests and beliefs will make us a strong company and an even better place to work.

We have expanded our efforts to highlight the value of diversity, inclusion and engagement, with a vision to establish a world-class culture of inclusion that accelerates innovation and advances patient care.

In addition, through our Women in Spine employee resource group, we are working to provide professional development opportunities for our Shareowners. This women-led organization coordinates events and initiatives to provide insight and advice on career development and leadership, while providing mentoring and other opportunities to further employee Shareowner engagement and advancement.

Company initiatives

Environmental sustainability

We believe in delivering solutions that protect our Shareowners and reduce our impact on the environment.

Our key areas of focus include corporate compliance with responsible hazardous waste management, recycling, emergency preparedness, and improving our environmental health and safety programs. Through initiatives to install electric vehicle charging stations at our facilities and focusing on energy efficiency and responsible use of resources, we are taking steps to support and advance environmental stewardship.
