Environmental responsibility is endorsed at the highest level to ensure lasting impact of our medical research. Throughout Seragon, our partners, suppliers and internal facilities adhere to firm initiatives to reduce our footprint on the earth and raise awareness about how we can be more sustainable developers. Our strategy to navigating an evolving healthcare system is: be a catalyst for positive change, minimise environmental impacts in our suppliers and operations, and sett target goals to guide sustainable actions.
Our aims to reduce environmental impact are:
- To understand environmental demographics leading to public health challenges and how to creatively address these issues.
- To use global resources to scale Seragon’s initiatives to promote sustainability at every level within our facilities.
- To support a supply chain that encourages flexible, safe performance and demands compliance for environmental protection.
- To ensure the health and wellbeing of our colleagues and partners as a priority.
- To measure our sustainability performance related to environment, health, and safety (EHS) goals and targets.
Our operations aim to reduce energy consumption, and with it reduce carbon emission byproducts from our activities. We implement measures to track our carbon footprints from producing and purchasing Seragon’s offerings, striving to cut down emissions across our supply chain. By tracking our performance, we contribute to minimising emissions and waste that come from our consumers using and disposing of Seragon’s products.
Waste management is aimed to prevent, reduce, or recycle waste by either using it as an energy source or by safely disposing of it. We work to maximise how much waste we can recycle or reuse to ensure that any effects from our operations related to waste is controlled. The long-term goal is to organise sustainable design principles that allow Seragon to continuously reduce waste disposal and increase our options to use waste as energy.
Making efficient use of our resources to protect our world and our people
Managing a water footprint
Responsible water management is one of Seragon’s sustainability focuses, which means achieving water sustainability along our supply chain and areas of operations. Water recycling is a practice that can improve the responsible usage of resources in our operations, which is especially vital in global regions where water is scarce.
In pharmaceutical industries, the improper disposal of medicines and from R&D facilities can contribute to potential risks to water quality. Pharmaceutical products entering the environment is a pollution risk for the ecosystem that we aim to reduce in our own facilities. Seragon undergoes assessments to develop frameworks that identify better, long-term environmental insights as we strive to improve our operations.
Creating a chain of responsibility
By following sustainable business practices, we encourage our colleagues and business partners to follow suit and practice similar levels of responsibility. It is our goal to take increasingly bold steps in doing our part to aid environmental sustainability and management as a business partner and as individuals.
