UN Global Compact
UN Sustainable Development Goals
As of December 2021, we are an official signatory of the UN Global Compact Sustainability Development Goals and the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact. BICO are committed to the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact, treating all workers with respect and dignity, ensuring safe working conditions, and conducting environmentally responsible, ethical operations.
For the sustainability development goals, BICO have focused on goal 3, 9 and 12 since these are the goals that BICO can influence the most and which in turn impact BICO the most. Goal three is routed in all that we do, with our bioconvergence agenda and our goal to reduce animal testing. In March 2021 BICO acquired MatTek which is the global leader in in-vitro technology and alternative drug testing. This acquisition is in line with the Group’s goals to reduce and eventually replace animal testing by developing technologies and methods that are more human relevant and provide a more accurate prediction of human clinical responses.
A healthier and sustainable society is a direct effect of BICO’s offering. Our business model and bioconvergence agenda contribute to the fundamental human right for healthier lives. Good health and well-being are at the core of our business and what we aim towards through Our offering. We also believe that health and well-being of our People is a fundament for the future.
Technology is paving the way and driving scientific research forward. By combining biology, technology, and engineering in new ways we can fundamentally shift and create the future of health. We strive to offer innovation by combining different disciplines based on our bioconvergence agenda. Goal 9 is therefore strongly connected to Our Offering – the future of health.
By producing high quality products and services and ensuring responsible sourcing throughout the value chain, BICO strive to minimize harmful effects on the planet. We strive for long-term customer relationships where ongoing dialogue is key to make our customers successful, by fulfilling their needs through our offering, which supports them reaching their targets.
