Seragon and our associated companies interact with biotechnology companies, academic institutions, state biotechnology centers, research laboratories, manufacturing facilities and related organizations throughout the United States and across the globe. Our employees apply biological knowledge and techniques to develop products and services for use in the health care industry. The benefits of these products and services include enriching the lives of our customers, all the while striving to employ the use of fewer hazardous chemicals internally and externally, and choosing better compounds that lessen the impact on the earth. Seragon adheres to water conservation standards, employs diversification of energy sources, and follows regulations in reducing and careful storage of hazardous wastes.
We recognize science can greatly improve quality of life, but above all else, we realize biotechnology should be approached with the appropriate mixture of innovation, accountability and modesty. Biotechnology is not a cure-all, although it has produced, and continues to produce, astonishing modernizations for the human race, we believe ethically responsible companies understand that no matter how life-changing the discovery, the consequences are vast to one’s work that fall outside the parameters of decency, a knowing misuse of technology, and misguided experimentation.
With these deliberations considered, Seragon adopts hereafter, the following declaration of our ethical values. Although an ethics statement does not establish any lawful standards of conduct, it is more intended to reach beyond legal requirements and provide an outline of principled practices for ourselves and the members of our greater industry to follow. It is understood that advances in biotechnology are fluid, and we therefore reserve the right to remove, update or add to the statement herein at any time into the future.
The Company will take all reasonable care to avoid misleading statements, concealment, and overstatement in all of its advertising and public declarations or announcements. It will seek to build long-term partnerships with its customers by being honest and straightforward in its dealings at all times. It will respect the confidentiality of any personal information it may obtain in relation to the public at large and will not pass on customer data to any third-party.
Seragon Pharmaceuticals (The Company) is dedicated to the ethical use of biotechnology in a responsible way, from research and the sourcing of ingredients, to design, manufacturing, and finally to the distribution of our products. Seragon is steadfast in the philosophy of improving lives through our work, and this is evident with our best practice approach in all our relationships with secondary and associated companies. We prioritize environmental impact, cultivation of renewable sources of energy, and reducing pollution in the manufacturing process.
Seragon encourages conversation of the ethical and social consequences of scientific developments in biotechnology, and our company works in earnest to establish new technologies that benefit the planet and all life that lives here. As bioethical issues arise, Seragon has a built-in structure, whereby senior management meet to seek sound solutions in line with reducing environmental impact.
The company and its employees will, at all times, demonstrate the highest levels of integrity, truthfulness, and honesty in order to uphold both personal and corporate standings and to inspire confidence and trust in our respective actions.
All employees are treated with dignity and respect and offered equal employment opportunities irrespective of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, maternity, marital status, family status, disability, age, or national origin. Employees are provided a safe workplace. The company does not tolerate any form of harassment.
The Seragon work culture is open and flexible and the Company sees these qualities essential to make a workable environment where the sharing of ideas and engagements are encouraged. The Company engages the policy of active listening on all levels, from employer to employee, as the key to facilitating an open-minded think-space critical to fostering kinetic and creative energies necessary for a healthy and growing workplace. We believe this freedom of flexibility is in the interest of the customer as it promotes a nimble mind, and gives employees the space to invent, develop and manufacture the very best in bio-available technology.
