Our CSR focus areas

Other essential areas of our CSR commitment

CSR at LEO Pharma encompasses much more than these five focus areas. Animal welfare, climate change, environment and energy, people safety and people development are all essential areas of LEO Pharma’s CSR commitment. Efforts within these areas are key to upholding LEO Pharma’s high standard within CSR. 

Transparency, compliance with regulations, disclosure, innovation and partnerships focused on creating shared value are all inherent elements when working with CSR at LEO Pharma.

Human rights and UN Sustainable Development Goals

In addition, our commitment to respect human rights and support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be part of the overall framework for our CSR work and will be integrated into relevant CSR areas.

We have assessed our impact on all 17 SDGs and have chosen to work with SDGs 3 ‘Good health and well-being’, 8 ‘Decent work and economic growth’, 12 ‘Responsible consumption and production’ and 16 ‘Peace, justice and strong institutions’ which are reflected in three of the five focus areas.

With respect to human rights, we are implementing the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs), including conducting human rights impact assessments.
