Caring for the world around us
Social Responsibility at Grünenthal
In Latin America, Grünenthal is committed to improving palliative care, among other things. Last October, the Grünenthal Foundation for Palliative Medicine joined together with other organisations to arrange an international Congress on Palliative Care in Lima. It aimed to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and skills related to treating people in the final phase of life, while also raising awareness about the importance of providing high-quality palliative medicine among the scientific and political communities, as well as across society.
Our team in Spain has been engaging in a unique project that combines recycling with support for people in need. In just one week, they collected 1,788 kilograms of paper for recycling through a “clean workspace” activity at our office in Madrid – and they then donated the same weight of food to the Food Bank Foundation of Madrid. This partnership has been in place since 2013. So far, Grünenthal employees have donated around 21,500 kilograms of food in total.
