Sustainability at Oncopeptides

Sustainability at Oncopeptides

Being a responsible, sustainable company is of paramount importance to us. In our relationships toward employees, in how the company operates, and in terms of the environment and wider society. Oncopeptides is on a journey. We know where we need to be in terms of sustainability and corporate responsibility, and we are taking substantive steps to get there. We are an open and transparent company and are currently preparing to measure key indicators that demonstrate how we actively reduce our environmental impact and conduct business responsibly.

ESG approach

We adopt an environmental, social, governance (ESG) approach to our sustainability and sustainability reporting efforts. We focus on each of these three areas separately. We minimize our environmental footprint; we work on Human Resources and social issues with employees and in a broader societal context; and address governance issues by ensuring that we operate fairly, transparently, and to high ethical standards.

To achieve this comprehensive ESG approach, we have drawn up a set of policies. A key component of this process was – and remains – engaging with stakeholders to ensure that we address relevant issues. We aim to align with key metrics of global sustainability frameworks, and support the United Nations Global Compact principles.

Oncopeptides also supports the UN’s 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and actively contribute to two of the SDGs in which we think we have the most impact and can help drive positive change. SDG 3: Good health and well-being - Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages, and SDG 13: Climate action - Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.

Continued focus

In 2021, we plan to conduct a materiality analysis to identify areas that are most material to the company. This will help focus our efforts on sustainability and lead to more formal treatment of sustainability. We are conducting ongoing dialogs with stakeholders that will help shape our sustainability work and ESG focus. By incorporating stakeholders’ views and expectations we can maintain our awareness and continuous development by addressing relevant issues and how to prioritize and integrate them into our ESG work as we look to further formalize our approach to sustainability.

Environmental Responsibilities

Environmental Responsibilities

At Oncopeptides we continually strive to minimize the environmental impact of our own operations and those of our suppliers. Our Environmental Policy, adopted in 2017 and which all employees are expected to follow, states that environmental impact should be part of the company’s decision-making processes and that our products should not consume more natural resources than necessary. We strive to prevent pollution, reduce carbon emissions, and work actively to minimize waste and energy and water use.
