Introduction and aim
Chiesi Limited (“Chiesi”) operates from two main sites in the UK, Manchester and Chippenham.
Chiesi is dedicated to the research, development and sales of innovative, therapeutic prescription medicines in the field of respiratory, neonatology, transplant medicine and rare diseases.
We recognise that our operations result in emissions to air and water, and the generation of waste. It is our aim to comply with legislation and other requirements, continue to reduce the environmental impacts of our business and operate in an environmentally responsible manner. This policy is part of our commitment to minimising the impact of our operations on the environment to as low a level as is practically possible and describes how we will go about achieving this aim.
A harmonious workplace is important as well as good and robust relationships with external society, with particular attention to local communities. The support of these communities is essential to promote and create shared growth, by proactively working toward enhancement of the local areas in which Chiesi conducts business operations and by promoting philanthropic activities, that can contribute socially and culturally to community development.
Community engagement is a process in which the needs, the priorities and the values of individuals and groups, not necessarily linked directly with the company activities, are incorporated into corporate decisions and management activities.
This Environmental and Social Policy applies to all of our operations. Matt Wiggetts, Legal & Compliance Director, is responsible for ensuring that the policy is implemented. However, all employees have a responsibility in their area to ensure that the aims and objectives of the policy are met.
We will ensure that resources are available to enable us to achieve our objectives and targets.
To achieve our aims we have set the following targets for 2019:
Monitoring and auditing
Progress against these targets will be monitored at quarterly intervals.
This Environmental and Social Policy is available to employees on the Chiesi C-Share platform and on Chiesi’s website at www.chiesi.uk.com.
