Orion’s Code of Conduct lays the foundation for our responsible operations. They guide our day-to-day work and concern all Orionees in all our countries of operation. We build sustainable and transparent business operations with our partners.
Ethics at the core of our business
Respecting human rights throughout the value chain is an important part of Orion’s corporate responsibility. Important rights holders in the value chain include Orion’s own employees, the people employed in Orion’s extensive supply chain and patients who use pharmaceuticals. Orion also recognises its responsibility for the impacts to people that come indirectly from the environmental impact of production and use of pharmaceuticals.
Sustainability in the supply chain is an integral part of Orion’s sustainability and in its global operations. Sustainability is an integral part of our procurement processes, and we continuously and systematically improve our operations. We also want to understand the operations of our entire supply chain and support our suppliers and partners on their journey towards a more sustainable future.
Orion is committed to high ethical standards throughout the life cycle of a medicine, from research and development to clinical trials and during and after the market life of the medicine. We also conduct animal research in a responsible way, respecting ethical principles and animal welfare.
Orion’s whistleblowing channel offers all the company’s employees, suppliers, customers and other stakeholders a way to report behaviour that violates its Code of Conduct and may cause harm to individuals, the company or the environment.
