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 are working towards building a fully sustainable business, one that balances the needs of all our stakeholders.

The term sustainability (or ESG) is wide-ranging and can mean different things to different organisations. At UDG Healthcare, sustainability means doing the right thing, taking into account the interests of all of our stakeholders when making business decisions and, where we can, making changes to our business to address their needs.

At a more granular level, we intend to focus our sustainability priorities on areas that create the biggest impact for our business. We will continue to review these priorities to ensure that we deliver positive outcomes for all our stakeholders.

Our sustainability review

In 2019, UDG Healthcare received an AA rating from MSCI, an upgrade from our previous A rating. We also received a rating of 17.5 from Sustainalytics (ranked 27th out of 483 healthcare companies).

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.
