Spotlight on CLINUVEL’s Approach to ESG Issues

As the Group grows and diversifies, CLINUVEL is conscious of its responsibilities towards Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), plus measures of sustainability.

Our approach is informed by the United Nations (UN) Global Compact and tenets on ESG issues and sustainability. The UN’s ten universal principles span the key areas of human rights, labour standards, environmental responsibility, and anti-corruption. CLINUVEL’s approach to ESG was discussed in the 2019 and 2020 Annual Reports (and thereafter on the Company’s website). It is timely to affirm our approach to ESG and identify some of the key ESG issues that are relevant and of particular focus to CLINUVEL. We also provide insight on how our approach is working in practice and plans to further enhance our effectiveness in ESG management as part of our focus on ongoing continuous improvement.
