corporate ethics

Good corporate governance helps build an atmosphere of trust, transparency, and accountability necessary for fostering long-term investment, financial stability, and business integrity. It thereby supports stronger growth and more inclusive societies. Corporate governance also provides the structure and systems through which companies function and set objectives.

At pharma&, corporate governance involves a set of relationships between our company’s management, the board, our shareholders, and stakeholders. We work with external service providers to get pragmatic guidance on our efforts. We want to interlink all relevant business areas to an overall strategy that allows us to operate as a fully integrated pharmaceutical company that is likewise sustainable and committed to doing what’s right.

Combining our expertise and passion with a persistent focus on expanding our portfolio of proven medicines, we strive to leave no eligible patient behind worldwide.
