We are committed to promoting access to medicines by providing reliable supply of high quality and affordable products across the geographies of our operations.
We are committed to creating an inclusive, healthy and safe work environment, where everyone is treated fairly and with respect and is inspired to develop to their full potential.
We are committed to operating an ethical and responsible business underpinned by our shared values and governance structures. We uphold the dignity, fundamental freedoms and human rights of our employees, contractors and the communities in which we live and work, and others affected by our activities.
We are committed to practicing responsible environmental stewardship, seeking to minimise any negative impact our operations have on the environment in compliance with applicable laws, regulations and other environmental management requirements.
We believe that doing business in a sustainable and responsible manner is integral to our purpose, our values and our philosophy “Healthcare. We Care”.
Our sustainability commitments are integrated into the Group’s strategic objectives and underpin the way we do business.
Aspen’s vision, “To deliver value to our stakeholders as a responsible corporate citizen that provides high quality, affordable medicines globally”, encapsulates the Group’s inherent approach of conducting business ethically, with integrity and with a commercial wisdom which strives to enhance the economic and social well-being of our investors, employees, customers and business partners.
Our Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (“B-BBEE”) philosophy
Our heritage is firmly rooted in South Africa and the South African business remains a material contributor to the Group. As such, we are acutely aware of the need for transformation in South African society in order to overcome the consequences of previous discrimination and to create an equitable society in which all individuals have equal opportunities, free from prejudice. By so doing, South Africa will benefit from the social reparation of past injustices and the added economic contribution of inclusive and unrestricted participation by all citizens.
