Juno will endeavour to comply with all international regulations, rules, and ensure fair corporate practices are applied to all stakeholders in all business dealings (i.e. customers, shareholders, employees, business partners, and society). Juno will maintain constructive relationships with administrative bodies, remaining politically neutral and complying with laws, and will not engage in relationships with individuals or groups that threaten social order or
- Provision of valuable goods and services
In line with our mission, Juno will strive to bring innovative pharmaceuticals to hospitals and health care specialists and in doing so help improve the health of society.
- Respect for human beings
Juno will respect diversity and individual human rights and provide a healthy and safe working environment in which all persons receive fair treatment without discrimination. It will also oppose enforced labor and child labor and respect fundamental human rights as well as workers’ rights.
- Protection of the natural environment and human rights
In all its business dealings Juno will proactively engage to minimise any potential negative impact it has on the natural environment and society. In doing this, we will take into account not only the supply chain of the products we produce or purchase, but also the whole life cycle impact of these products.
- Responsibility of management
All employees must understand that they play an essential role in fulfilling the spirit of our corporate social responsibility commitment and thus, in addition to leading by example, management must ensure that this information and our philosophy is disseminated to everyone in the organisation and to all related parties.
