The Ferring Philosophy
Our philosophy, ‘People come first at Ferring’, is the cornerstone of our business and our approach to CSR. It sets out what we expect of ourselves (towards our patients, employees, physicians and partners), as well as the expectations we have of those who make up the Ferring community.
Building on our philosophy’s firm foundation, we define our CSR statement.
Our Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is about how we as a Company operate in an ethical and sustainable way and deal with our environmental and social impacts.
