Climate change is one of the greatest risks to our world. We have a collective responsibility to make our operations as sustainable as we can, and in doing so improve the quality of life for our people and the wider community, and deliver efficiencies for our business.
We seek to comply with current environmental legislation in all geographies in which we have operations. Beyond this, we will look for opportunities to both minimise our adverse impact on the environment and make positive contributions where we can.
We commit to adopting practices that promote sustainability, choosing sustainable sources for office resources, minimising the use of paper in our offices, and reducing and recycling waste. We endeavour to adopt digital resources wherever practical to help us to do this.
We commit to maintaining a travel policy that encourages relatively low levels of travel for business purposes and promotes cleaner, more environmentally friendly ways of travel where necessary. Travel will be reviewed annually to ensure that where we do have people travelling, there is a clear business rationale for doing so and we will try to offset the carbon impact of doing so in other ways.
We draw the attention of our staff, contractors and clients to our efforts to reduce the impact of operations on the environment, and encourage them to do so where possible.
tranScrip takes its responsibility to employees, suppliers and the wider community seriously. Supporting our clients in the delivery of medicines and medical device products means patients are always at the core of what we do and how we work.
We comply with legislation that underpins the ethical, moral and socially responsible treatment of people in all geographies in which we operate. We will adopt policies in alignment with the legislation, and beyond this where necessary to protect the interests of our stakeholders, and we will educate our people, clients and suppliers on our policies.
We support initiatives that give back to communities, and others that contribute to the health, wellbeing and personal development of our people, including adopting approaches that support diversity and inclusion, continuous professional development, and health and wellness. We commit to engaging our people in how we support them, both now and in the future.
It is essential that we promote strong oversight, transparency and risk management at all levels of the organization to ensure the long term sustainability and value preservation of the business to the benefit of all our stakeholders.
We commit to maintaining strong corporate governance processes, proactively managing risk through engaged management and Board oversight.
We commit to ensuring that we have clear, compliant and accessible policies and guidance on key governance matters, including but not limited to anti-bribery and corruption, modern slavery, and scientific integrity and will promote these to our clients and suppliers.
Health and safety and equal opportunities policies prevent our people from harm or detriment. In the event that something still falls below the expected standards, there is the safety net of a robust process to allow our people to speak up and be heard, without fear.
The purpose of this ESG Policy (the ‘Policy’) is to document tranScrip’s approach to ESG matters, providing all those who work for, or with, the business guidance to make decisions in line with tranScrip’s ESG aims.
The basis of tranScrip’s approach to ESG is to:
The Board has overall responsibility for setting the ESG agenda and ensuring that ESG matters are given proper oversight and resources. The Management Team has overall responsibility for ESG policy and the operation of the policy, including assigning responsibilities.
The ESG lead is responsible for promoting and progressing ESG initiatives and ensuring the ESG policy is updated; the policy will be reviewed at least every 2 years, and more frequently if necessary.
