Act on Supply Chain (LkSG) – Declaration of Principle

At NextPharma, we understand corporate responsibility holistically. As a company, producing high-quality drugs benefitting the health of everyone, we commit to protecting the environment and the health and safety of our staff, customers and communities. As employer, we do this through implementation of operating standards with respect to labor, health and safety, environment and business ethics.

Comprehensively respecting and ensuring compliance with human rights is a central concern in a globalized world with complex supply and goods flows. We support and respect the core labor standards of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and are committed to complying with human rights due diligence obligations along our value chain through our Code of Conduct. To underpin this commitment, the Next Pharma Group has a Next Pharma Code of Conduct that covers all Group business units and global supply chains.

As a responsible company, we naturally conduct a risk analysis to determine human rights and environmental risks along our supply chain. The analysis of our industry and country-specific risks regarding the identification of high-risk suppliers has shown that there are no significant risks. We continuously document our activities to effectively implement our due diligence obligations.

We have implemented the requirements of the law on the Supply Chain Act to prevent human rights violations in supply chains ("LkSG"). We are committed to the international principles for the protection of human rights and the environment, which are reflected in Section 2 (2) and (3) of the LkSG.
