Sustainability at RoslinCT
At RoslinCT we build progressive partnerships that deliver life-saving cell & gene therapies to patients in need. We understand the need to do so in a sustainable way – minimizing our environmental footprint; delivering social impact for our employees, patients, and communities; acting as responsible citizens, and promoting good governance.
Living within our limits
Increasing climate change impacts global health in a number of ways. Exposure to extreme weather events, heat, poor air and water quality, biodiversity loss, and reduced food security can lead to failings in health systems, lack of leadership and governance, poor service delivery, and an increased lack of medical products and technologies in the global regions that need them most.
Climate-related health outcomes, as a result, include increased mortality, heat-related illnesses, respiratory illnesses, and non-communicable diseases such as cancers and diabetes.
As an advanced cell & gene therapy CDMO we are committed to doing all we can to minimise our scope 1, scope 2 and scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions, increase our use of renewable energy and reduce our climate impact.
People and patients
Through our services with our partners, we are providing world-class autologous and allogeneic therapies for patients worldwide. We offer our partners quality, agility, and flexibility as we advance their cell therapy products from development to commercialization. The RoslinCT purpose-built facilities in the UK and the US, our focus on innovation, and collective experience enable our partners to deliver cost-effective and compliant cell-based therapies to patients in need.
We strive to harness our enthusiasm for scientific discovery and excellence and influence the next generation of leaders. We will work with our partners to donate our time and equipment across our communities and in classrooms and provide all our employees with the opportunity to undertake community volunteering, charitable, and STEM-related activities. We will work with partner organisations to grow our network of STEM Ambassadors, promote careers in science and provide opportunities to young people to learn about the impact they can have in global health and wellbeing.
Governance & Ethics
At RoslinCT sustainability is everyone’s responsibility, regardless of their position in the organization. We will create a network of sustainability champions across the organization to lead by example and influence others to implement sustainable behaviours in the workplace and at home.
Our Senior Leadership Team has a responsibility to monitor performance and provide guidance to the Sustainability Management Team, which is led by our Head of Sustainability.
Our approach is one of complete transparency around our sustainability journey, providing regular disclosures and updates on our goals, KPIs and roadmaps for longer terms initiatives. This is reinforced through our codes of conduct for employees and suppliers, and our policies on sustainability, human rights, EHS, and Equality, Diversity & Inclusion.
