As a manufacturer of medicines we take our business very seriously. We also see the responsibility we have, as a chance to set a positive example in our industry. We have bundled our activities in our Sustainable Antibiotics program.
We are driven by our promise of Quality. Responsibility. Sustainability. to ensure we take responsibility in all these areas beyond our products and our own operations. Today we seek to map our entire supply chain via our membership in the Together for Sustainability initiative and supplier sustainability assessments.
As a manufacturer of antimicrobials (antibiotics and anti-fungals), we today face one of the biggest health threats to mankind: antimicrobial resistance. Therefore we strive to do everything in our power to ensure this important topic is part of our work. To do this, we have started the Sustainable Antibiotics program. In this program we combine all initiatives related to sustainable and responsible antibiotics manufacturing. We also seek to raise the awareness about the importance of responsible and sustainable antibiotics production.
We can only be successful if we all work together. Therefore we closely work with suppliers, customers and marketing partners to ensure responsible manufacturing from start to the final drug product. We also liaise with authorities, NGOs and industry groups to increase transparency in the value chain.
