Alpro Pharmacy, Malaysia’s largest prescription pharmacy, has pledged to strengthen its Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) practices in day-to-day operations and organisational culture.
This comes after the pharmacy’s recent inclusion as part of the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). UNGC is a United-Nations-certified global movement that aims to mobilise sustainable companies and stakeholders to create a better world.
In line with the inclusion, Alpro is ready to increase its efforts and take concrete steps to support the Ten Principles of UNGC.
The Ten Principles of UNGC cover an array of issues that include human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption and take actions that advance societal goals and implement Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
ESG practices have been a part of the Alpro DNA. The pharmacy chain carried out various instrumental initiatives throughout its 20 years in Malaysia, including notable campaigns such as Safe Medication Disposal Campaign, the Growing Stars Project, ProjectBangku and Save2Safe, to name a few.
Branding, Promotion and Trade Marketing Director Lee Yin Chen said that the recognition by UNGC is a reward for the brand’s mantra of putting community first before commerce. — The Health
