Our CSR APPROACH
As an independent pharmaceutical company, the Servier Group is driven by a sense of responsibility to be involved in and recognised for its positive contributions to modern-day economic, social and environmental issues.
We fulfil this responsibility not only toward the 94 million patients who are treated daily with our medicinal products, but also toward our 21,700 employees, our partners and stakeholders, and the environment. Our CSR policy fully reflects this global responsibility.
Based on a materiality assessment conducted in 2016 and on ISO 26000, Servier’s CSR policy addresses topics as vast as product safety and quality, the conduct of clinical trials, access to therapeutic treatments, quality of life at work and the environmental impact of our production facilities.
Combined with the Group’s long-term vision and strong values, which include ‘Care’, our CSR policy pushes us to perform and creates value for all in-house and external stakeholders.
Servier’s CSR Directorate consistently supports all employees in the gradual implementation of CSR policy or programmes within each entity. It steers performance in terms of social responsibility and measures progress toward achieving goals that directly influence the fulfilment of our vision, which is to hand down to future generations a world that guarantees access to good quality health care for all.
Our CSR Directorate comprises two important bodies. A Strategic Committee defines the focus of our commitments and CSR strategy, in close alignment with overall Group strategy. Assisting this committee is an Operational Committee tasked with defining and tracking our main CSR projects and supporting all directorates with a view to strengthening CSR culture in every country in which we operate. A CSR Community oversees the implementation of this strategy Group-wide.
