At Grünenthal, we have a responsibility to act with integrity and to conduct all of our research and business activities in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Building trust by maintaining the highest ethical standards gives confidence to our stakeholders – including patients, customers, employees, partners, suppliers, investors and the communities we serve.
Our culture and our compliance system provide a clear framework for our actions and are built around our Code of Conduct.
Our Compliance Organisation is deeply anchored into our business, and Compliance Officers are members of various decision-making bodies across the organisation and in all of our major affiliates. Their independence is maintained via a direct reporting line into the Global Compliance Officer, who regularly reports to the Executive Board and the Advisory Board.
Our global Compliance framework is brought to life through ongoing dialogue. This includes face-to-face training and workshops, as well as online training sessions and day-to-day consulting for our colleagues. The compliant management of our business partners forms part of this framework. We also offer a 24-hour Ethics Helpline that is open to anyone who has questions, concerns or doubts.
