Here at Recipharm, we conduct our business in the right way, by respecting all stakeholders at all times. Working in a sustainable manner makes good business sense and allows us to improve our relationship with everyone connected to our company. 

At every level of our business across every site location, acting with respect and integrity is an essential part of our decision making processes. We also take our responsibilities seriously and actively work with sustainability and legal compliance in the areas of environment, health & safety, business ethics and employment.

We are proud that Recipharm was one of the first pharmaceutical companies to achieve ISO14001 and OHSAS18001 certification. It is a requirement that all operating companies maintain their ISO accreditation, which we have done for many years.

Recipharm has assigned to United Nations’ Global compact and are committed to implementing the principles of Global Compact in our business processes. We also have our very own Code of Conduct, which defines the business ethics that we demand and is based on our core values. It is underpinned by and complies with the ten principles of the UN Global Compact. All employees are required to be trained in the Code of Conduct and no employee is authorised to deviate from this. Key employees are required to sign each year to verify that they have complied with the Code. This is something we take very seriously at Recipharm as part of our commitment to a sustainable business.

As an organisation, we only work with suppliers who act in a responsible and sustainable manner. Whilst we do not routinely go back further than one step in our supply chain, we do take steps to establish our suppliers’ approach to sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Our expectations towards our suppliers are presented in Recipharm’s Supplier Code of Conduct.

Recipharm reports sustainability work according to Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4. We also report our Green House Gas emissions within the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).
