In 2015, the UN General Assembly outlined its SDGs – a shared set of global goals that aim to eradicate poverty and inequality, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all
Bioiberica, a life sciences company, has obtained certification of its CSR management system aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), following an audit by Bureau Veritas.
The company, which supplies products for human, animal and plant health in 80 countries, says the certification reaffirms its commitment to environmental, social and economic sustainability, alongside safety, innovation and excellence.
The certification was awarded to Bioiberica following a transparent audit process through which Bureau Veritas found the company to be strongly aligned with 6 of the 17 SDGs defined by the UN. These reportedly included: ensuring good health and wellbeing by creating an effective health and safety system for all employees; ensuring affordable and clean energy; promoting decent work and economic growth; building resilient infrastructure, sustainable industrialisation, and fostering innovation; advocating for reducing inequality and promoting social inclusion; and promoting responsible consumption and production through Bioiberica’s circular economy business model.
Bioiberica’s CEO, Luis Solera, said: "Bioiberica is firmly committed to sustainability and the circular economy model. With this comes the responsibility of constantly working to improve the health of people, animals and plants, and promoting a coherent ecological transition that contributes to creating a healthier planet. The recognition of the CSR management system reinforces our determination to continue working towards a better future”.
Bertrand Martin, Executive President of Bureau Veritas Spain and Portugal, said: "By achieving certification of its CSR Management System aligned with the SDGs, Bioiberica takes a further step in its crucial commitment to sustainability. We’re very proud to have certified a company whose commitment is to improve global health and wellbeing, and working with companies like Bioiberica reinforces our desire to contribute to a more responsible economy.”
