Our Corporate Social Responsibility
We are all working to a common cause; to being one of the world's leading suppliers of quality affordable medications. Our objective continues to make a significant impact on the lives of millions of people, many of whom would otherwise suffer from inadequate availability of essential medicines.
In Australia, Apotex is committed to the development of the pharmaceutical industry whilst improving the quality of life of our employees, their families and the community by being responsible for our actions - socially, ethically, and environmentally.
As a conscientious corporate citizen, Apotex acknowledges that it has a direct responsibility to society and to the communities in which our facilities are located, in which our stakeholders live, and where we do business. We recognise that commercial objectives cannot be obtained over the long term unless the legitimate aspirations of society at large are also addressed.
We are increasingly focused on partnering with the community through corporate and employee donations to charitable causes.
We are aware of the impact all businesses have on the environment and as such, Apotex is a signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant (APC). As part of the Covenant, we are committed to reducing the negative effect of packing waste on the environment, by reducing the use the packaging material, increasing recycling and the use of recycling material.
Apotex recognizes that for our company to prosper, we must accept and balance our responsibilities towards the varied interests and concerns of our customers, employees and health care professionals that we serve. These particular interest groups are our stakeholders - individuals who make up the society in which we live... members of the greater community.
Please refer to our Press Centre on this website for more details of our focus on giving back to the community.
