At Stryker, we're not just dedicated to enhancing patient and caregiver outcomes; we're equally committed to positively impacting our planet and communities. Our commitment shines through the vibrant activity of our global teams, including Stryker Environmental Alliance (SEA). SEA embodies our collective ambition to educate, engage and empower the Stryker community towards a more sustainable and healthier world.  


Fast Facts about Stryker's Environmental Alliance (SEA):  

Mission: To educate, engage, and empower our Stryker community to positively impact people and our planet.

About SEA:  SEA emerged from a shared passion among Stryker employees to drive sustainable change and align with Stryker's Corporate Sustainability goals. SEA's formation symbolizes our commitment to building a better, healthier world through actionable environmental stewardship and community engagement.  SEA's chapters are span from the United States to the South Pacific, each tailoring its initiatives to local site needs and community impact projects.
