Building a sustainable organisation for the long term benefit of our people, clients, communities and environment. Brendan McAtamney Chief Executive Officer

At UDG Healthcare we want to build a sustainable business while remaining cognisant of our responsibilities to our people, our environment and our community.

Each year we strive to integrate sustainability into the Group’s fabric and this year with the help of our employees, we have clearly articulated our sustainability strategy.

In July 2019 we consulted with a representative group of employees from across the Group to help refine our approach and to focus on critical areas to prioritise within People and Culture, Environment and Community involvement.

The results of this materiality survey have reassured us that our activities are aligned with our employees own values and priorities. While we accept that there is still much to do in the future, we are confident that our direction is aligned to this key stakeholder group.


In 2019, UDG Healthcare received a rating of AA (on a scale of AAA-CCC) in the MSCI ESG Ratings assessment. This is an upgrade from the previous A rating.

MSCI ESG Research provides MSCI ESG Ratings on global, public and a few private companies on a scale of AAA (leader) to CCC (laggard), according to exposure to industry-specific ESG risks and the ability to manage those risks relative to peers.
