In 2017, we identified the key sustainability topics of the Galenica Group internally for the first time and evaluated them from the perspective of the Galenica Group and its key stakeholders. Following in-depth discussions by the SC and the Executive Committee, the material topics were further expanded and clarified in 2020.
Finally, in 2021, we carried out a materiality process in accordance with GRI Standards, with the involvement of external stakeholders for the first time. Internal and external stakeholders – investors, partners, suppliers, customers, associations, employees, public authorities, as well as members of the SC, the Executive Board and the BoD – evaluated the relevance of the topics and the impact of Galenica’s business activities on the social, ecological and economic environment.
Galenica's relevance matrix comprises thirteen topics.
Our sustainability goals
The SC has defined specific targets for all material sustainability topics, which were approved by the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors at the end of 2021.
In addition, in the financial year 2021 the topic of sustainability was integrated into the goals of the strategic programmes and therefore firmly anchored in the corporate strategy.
