Sustainable solutions for a healthier world
Camurus is committed to finding sustainable solutions to ensure the long-term successful development of its business – for the benefit of patients, healthcare systems, shareholders and employees.
Camurus sustainability agenda
Camurus has for many years had a focus on long-term sustainability. In 2021, together with external advisors, we conducted a review of the company's sustainability profile, including a stakeholder and materiality analysis to identify the most important sustainability issues for the company. The materiality analysis together with a subsequent current situation analysis became the starting point for Camurus’ revised sustainability strategy, which was implemented in 2022.
Camurus' strategy and sustainability work is divided into four areas: Patients, Planet, People, and Responsible Business.

Camurus works to develop innovative and potentially life-changing medicines for the benefit of patients, caregivers and society at large. The goal is to be able to offer medicines with improved treatment outcomes, that provide an increased quality of life and a more efficient use of resources.
Camurus strives to conduct a sustainable business where environmental and climate considerations are integrated into the company’s decisions. Together with suppliers and other stakeholders, we work to minimize our operational and product-related impact throughout the entire value chain.
At the end of 2022, Camurus had 176 employees in different countries. The business is in a strong growth phase and new employees are continously joining the company. Camurus strives to create a workplace that builds on the company’s values – innovation, quality, passion, collaboration and ownership, where the company’s entrepreneurship, creativity and leadership skills are key factors to ensure long-term success.
Camurus strives to ensure a high level of business ethics with suppliers, healthcare professionals,
patients and other stakeholders. This includes preventing corruption and anti-competitive
behavior, as well as ensuring transparency in collaborations and marketing, without compromising
data confidentiality and patient privacy.
