Lundbeck became a signatory to the UN Global Compact in 2009. We continue to promote initiatives that demonstrate our commitment to the 10 principles on human and labor rights, environment protection and anti-corruption.
We annually release our Communication on Progress report to the UN Global Compact, describing in detail our sustainability performance and targets. For over a decade, we have reported on our sustainability efforts, challenges and contributions to our business, stakeholders and the societies in which we operate.
In 2020, we based the key aspects of our sustainability strategy on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We found we have a significant impact on six of the 17 Goals:
Goal 3 is closely linked to our corporate purpose and dedication to restore brain health and Goal 13 drives our efforts to prepare for a zero emissions future.
We will use our influence and act to promote Goals 5, 8, 12 and 16. Across our sustainability actions, we are seeking partnerships with others to enable change and maximize impact (Goal 17).
We are dedicated to improving access to brain health in accordance with WHO.
Saving energy and reducing CO2 emissions are strategic priorities for Lundbeck.
We pursue our business purpose guided by several pillars and our Code of Conduct.
With our own manufacturing processes, we obtain several sustainable opportunities.
Diversity has always been part of our DNA. From the highest levels of Lundbeck to the shop floor, we work to ensure Diversity, Equity & Inclusion are integrated into practice and mindset.
