Sustainability

Sustainability Report 2015

Sustainability is a key focus of Grünenthal and has been anchored in our strategy and our daily work for many years.

By sustainably investing in research and development above the industrial average, we are committing to innovation in order to treat patients with unmet medical needs and bring value-adding products to markets. 15% of patients in Europe who suffer from chronic pain are treated with a product from our own research and development. Therewith, we sustainably contribute to society by improving the quality of life for patients around the globe.

Grünenthal commits its thinking and acting for the interest of future generations. In our Code of Conduct and our policy for environment, health & safety, we commit ourselves to limit the environmental impact of our business activities to a minimum and fulfill the requirements on occupational health and safety. With many of the initiatives we at Grünenthal implement, we go beyond legal and official requirements.

In collaboration with our customers and partners, we are confident that we can further improve our efforts creating shared value for our company and the society. We will continue to intensify our sustainability efforts and ensure future learning alongside our partners.
