Sustainability at Oriola

Oriola’s sustainability agenda has three themes: Environment, Social and Governance and society.

Fostering a healthier tomorrow

At Oriola, we believe that a sustainable future starts with health. We foster a healthier tomorrow through our services and products and minimise the impact of our operations on the environment. Our core business, the wholesale of pharmaceuticals and health products, has an essential and positive role in society and people’s lives.

Sustainability is a key part of our business strategy. High sustainability standards allow us to fulfil our purpose ‘Health for life’. This means that we actively incorporate environmentally and socially responsible practices into our day-to-day operations and decision-making processes. 

Our sustainability agenda drives our actions forward and supports us in reaching our ambitious long-term sustainability goals. We create value for various stakeholders throughout the entire value chain from employees to customers and shareholders as well as the communities in which we operate. 

Oriola’s sustainability agenda 

To continuously improve our understanding of what is material to us while remaining attentive to our stakeholders’ evolving sustainability expectations, we aim to conduct a materiality analysis every third year. Through this analysis, we can identify, evaluate, and prioritise the key topics in our value chain that are important to both our stakeholders and our business. This involves considering both the impact we have on society and the potential risks and opportunities that these identified themes may create for our business.

Our sustainability agenda was updated in 2023 based on the most recent materiality analysis and is divided into three key sustainability themes: Environment, Social and Governance and society. Within each of the three themes, we can play a key role in delivering services and products that enhance the health and wellbeing of both people and the planet. Sustainable growth and financial profitability form the fundamentals of everything we do. 

We monitor our sustainability impact through long-term strategic targets that have been defined for each sustainability theme. To measure achievements, we have set strategic and operative key performance indicators (KPI) for each sustainability theme. 

Oriola is committed to supporting the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
