We are proud to announce that Polpharma is the winner of the XII edition of the Ranking of Responsible Companies (http://rankingodpowiedzialnychfirm.pl/2018/06/ranking-odpowiedzialnych-firm-2018-wyniki/) ! This is the first time in the history of the ranking, where the leading position has been gained by a Polish company. What's more, Polpharma obtained the maximum possible number of points.

The Ranking of Responsible Companies is the only list of companies operating in Poland, assessed in terms of quality of corporate social responsibility (CSR) management. Altogether, 211 companies took part. This year, the organizer of the ranking was the Koźmiński Business Hub, while the substantive partners - the Responsible Business Forum and Global Compact Network Poland. Deloitte was responsible for the verification, whilst the media partner was the Polish newspaper (Dziennik Gazeta Prawna).

For over 80 years, Polpharma has successfully balanced the need to achieve its economic targets with the obligation to serve the society and care for the environment. In 2014, we put our efforts in this field into a formal framework and created the Polpharma Group Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy, which was developed in close collaboration with our key stakeholders. The Strategy outlines our CSR priorities and the commitments with respect to these priorities. This has allowed us to better respond to the needs of those around us, whilst developing our business, based on a system of values. The pillars of the Group’s corporate social responsibility are: patient and community service, ethical business conduct, innovation and the advancement of knowledge. Within these three areas, we have undertaken 14 priority commitments. We defined the goals for the key risks and opportunities related to sustainable development which we will pursue.

Polpharma's victory in the ranking confirms the huge work we have done in recent years in the area of improving our standards. The principles of responsible business and sustainable development have become an integral part of the management in our organization.

It is a great distinction of our work to develop our CSR standards according to Polpharma's motto:

"People helping People"

We would like to thank all our employees and stakeholders who help us become an even more responsible company every day.
