Communication on Progress report 2022

We are proud to announce the release of Missionpharma’s UN Global Compact Communication on Progress (COP) report 2022.

Missionpharma has been active member of the UN Global Compact since 2018. Through our membership we commit to the principles of responsible business conduct promoted by the UN Global Compact.

This sustainability report presents the results of our efforts to generate measurable and beneficial development impacts in line with the UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles for human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption – aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Especially in times of crisis, there is a need to secure medical supplies in many countries around the world, and Missionpharma faces unique challenges but also opportunities to make a positive impact in these situations.

Discover how we incorporate the Ten Principles into our strategies and activities in our 2022 Communication on Progress (COP) report. The report is also publicly available at the UN Global Compact website here.

ABOUT  THE UN GLOBAL COMPACT
The UN Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative that calls on companies to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption and take actions that advance the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Donation of sutures to Ukraine

Soldiers and civilians are suffering from the devastating consequences of the war in Ukraine, and humanitarian needs are multiplying and spreading by the hour.

Through our partnership with the Danish voluntary humanitarian organisation, Global Medical Aid (GMA), Missionpharma is supporting the people in Ukraine with a donation of 145,000 surgical sutures. Sutures constitute a critical function in any surgical procedure, and this donation enables the local health personnel to perform up to 30,000 operations.

Orthopedic surgeon, Finn Warburg, has more than 40 years’ experience with war surgery and has been working as staff surgeon with the Danish Emergency Management Agency for decades. He states:

“Effective surgery is impossible without sutures. The present situation in Ukraine has raised the need for life- and limb-saving surgery for victims of war and other critically ill patients. Lack of sutures in the hospitals would create life-threatening situations. The dispatchment of the great amount of sutures is a key function in support of the Ukrainians’ fight for their freedom.”
