Our sustainability journey

Prioritizing medical sustainability

Camurus' commitment to improve quality of life for patients with severe and chronic diseases has a clear sustainability perspective. Our ambition is to contribute to a healthier world in a sustainable way by developing innovative and potentially life-changing medicines for the benefit of patients, caregivers, and society at large. 

Camurus' sustainable medicine agenda

Camurus’ sustainability strategy and work are divided into four focus areas with established ambitions, goals, key figures and activities with the aim to contribute to achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
