Social Responsibility

Pharmaron has the responsibility to help patients improve their quality of life and save lives by providing therapeutics in a timely, cost-effective and business-sustainable manner. We work closely with non-profit organizations to help discover and develop urgently needed and effective medicine at a low cost. Our social responsibility includes providing a safe environment for our employees in each of our facilities and operating our business in an environmental responsible manner. Sustainability goals are created to track our progress of achievement on a regular basis. In addition, Pharmaron is committed to running scientific animal studies that are high-quality and meet ethical standards.

Support Disaster Relief Recovery

  • Disaster relief assistance in China and around the world – donating goods, money and volunteer time

Animal Welfare

Pharmaron is committed to running high-quality scientific studies that meet all ethical standards. Our TSP site is AAALAC accredited.

Some of the undertaken scientific studies are performed in animals. As well as being a legal requirement, Pharmaron believes animal studies are an ethical and moral necessity before human exposure. Pharmaron insists on the highest standards of health and welfare for all animals in our care and is committed to following these principles:

Group 3 3

Strict Standards

Animal research in accordance with national regulations, legislation and guidelines that apply in China and the countries of our customers (e.g. USDA 9 CFR parts 1, 2, 3 and 2010/63/EU). Pharmaron regards these standards as a minimum, and they underpin our own strict global standards of animal welfare

Animal Treatment Regulations

All animals bred by qualified laboratory animal breeders who are subject to inspection and qualification by Pharmaron’s animal care professionals. Animal providers must adhere to Pharmaron’s standards and regulations for animal treatment

Culture of Care

A sustained culture of care, concern and respect for animal welfare where animal mistreatment is a dismissible offense

Knowledge Sharing

Knowledge sharing within the company and scientific community for the replacement, reduction and refinement of animal studies, known as “The 3Rs”

Qualified Staff

Qualified veterinary surgeons and staff involved in managing and implementing our animal care programs

Staff Training

Training for all staff working with animals to ensure proper care

Ethical Consideration

Animal research conducted only after appropriate ethical consideration and review by Pharmaron’s IACUC (Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee). This review, identical to the procedures used in the US and Europe, ensures that we provide a high level of care to all animals used, and that a scientifically appropriate and validated alternative to the use of animals is not available

Employee Safety

Our team has developed a comprehensive system focused on Safety, Health and Environment (SHE). SHE is integrated with all R&D processes and activities to ensure our facilities and local communities are safe. Regular communication with local authorities regarding SHE policies, regulations and practices ensures the best practices for the SHE system are implemented. We strive for excellence regarding the health and safety of our team and communities and we aim for our efforts to be a benchmark for the CRO industry.

Environment, Health and Safety Policy

  • Commit to complying with all applicable environment, health and safety legal requirements and other voluntary requirements to which we subscribe
  • Believe all incidents and occupational diseases are preventable
  • Foster a culture of safety within our organization
  • Commit to preventing pollution and operating our business in an environmentally responsible manner
  • Commit to continuously improving our environment, health and safety performance by implementing management systems and engaging with all our employees, customers and key stakeholders
