Our most important duty in terms of social responsibility is to produce and market effective, scientifically tested, medicines that are free of side effects.
We are aware that the goal of a company is to make a profit and expand, and it would be disingenuous of us to claim that we are any different. However, we believe there is a business model that reconciles the interests of the business with those of the public. With GUNA, we can say that the interests of the public coincide with the interests of our business interests.
Our business strategies are socially responsible and are not an added cost for our customers.
Beginning in 2008 we have participated in Zero Impact®, the LifeGate project that calculates, reduces, and offsets CO2 emissions generated by activities, products, services and events. They also contribute to the creation, care and protection of forests growing both in Italy and across the world.
Zero Impact® has enabled us to understand the environmental impact of our business, to promote our sustainability path, and to offset our CO2 emissions. Our partnership with Zero Impact® helps create and protect forests in Costa Rica.
For some years we have prioritized the transparency and sharing our values as well as the tools we use to communicate them. We have therefore decided to publish the company’s social report online where the company’s business partners can both consult and interact with it.
The first published version of GUNA’s social report was in line with our vision for transparency. For this reason, we have prepared a structured “dashboard of dynamic indicators” which is continuously enriched with data, tables, information and above all stories over the course of a year and is shared in complete transparency and “constructed” together with all company departments and all individuals that form part of the company network.
The end result is the world’s first “real time” social report, which we invite our business partners to read. Not only are we ready to open our doors, we actively encourage our business partners to take a closer look at the company’s inner workings.
The company’s social responsibility strategies and projects are overseen by a dedicated, professional, team.
