High ethical standards
As a biopharmaceutical company, we work with evolving new technologies. New medicines offer great potentials to contribute to sustainable development by improving the quality of life for people globally.
We have high ethical standards for our mode of operation and as a business we recognize our responsibility to act sensibly, taking our social and environmental responsibilities into consideration.
Acting responsibly towards our stakeholders has always been an essential part of our values – improving the lives for some may not happen to the detriment of others.
The primary focus for our CSR efforts are our employees
Symphogen is a biopharmaceutical company without large-scale manufacturing or any other major activities with a significant negative impact on people and environment around us. Our research and development activities are carried out from state-of-the-art laboratory facilities in Ballerup, Denmark, which are designed to minimize environmental impact. In addition, we have a small office in New Jersey, US.
We have no formal corporate CSR policy but specific guidelines for e.g. employee health and safety and conduct towards health care professionals. We have implemented policies for the handling of waste materials from our laboratory facilities in accordance with regulatory requirements. Thus, discharges into the air, soil and water are limited.
In 2018, we aim to formalize our approach to corporate social responsibility through the development of more transparent principles and policies.
Our people are the basis of our future success and we therefore strive to continuously create and maintain a healthy and inspiring working environment. The objective of our working environment activities is to improve the safety, health, and satisfaction of our employees, and we have established a Health & Safety organization with representatives from employees and managers. We meet all regulatory requirements regarding the way the workplace is designed. This also includes the psychological and physical work environment.
