One of the major concerns of Vetoquinol is to reduce pollution, preserve natural resources, save energy, optimise management of waste and to be a pharmaceutical company with a human face.
Vetoquinol, a responsible behaviour worlwide
Vetoquinol commits to implementing a coherent policy on safety, health and the environment. The Group fosters a responsible attitude on the part of the company and its employees in environmental protection and social fairness.
In 2008, Vetoquinol formally drew up a sustainable development policy, transparent to both our co-workers and external partners, through a Business Good Practice Guide.
In October 2014, within the framework of the 6th Gaïa Index campaign, Vetoquinol was ranked 1st amongst companies generating turnover of between €150m and €500m and 4th in the industry sector. This ratings agency assessed the Group on its level of transparency and maturity in 5 areas: financial, governance, social, environment and external stakeholders, and over 110 quantitative criteria.
For Vetoquinol, environment is everyone's business
Risk management is at the heart of Vetoquinol's activity. We have therefore decided to put in place dedicated processes and teams on all our industrial sites. The Group's HSE (Health, Safety and Environment) team carries out regular safety and environment audits at each of its production facilities.
Vetoquinol's major concern is to reduce pollution, protect natural resources, save energy and optimise waste management.
Several actions are carried out to achieve this, in particular the ISO 50001 certification of the Lure site. The internal water purification plant on the Lure site was a significant investment and has been equipped with a new treatment plant, which is innovative, simple, effective and reliable, to protect the river receiving our waste water. This is a new tool which enables Vetoquinol go beyond current regulatory requirements.
Vetoquinol, an international commitment
For several years now, Vetoquinol has been investing to encourage dialogue with all of our partners and improve animal health, respecting animal, man and the environment. The Group is thus a part of IFAH Europe (International Federation for Animal Health Europe), Health For Animals and a member of the local unions for veterinary industry, all over the world.
