Materiality

We take an inclusive approach to
determining which sustainability
issues are most relevant to our
company, incorporating the
views of all of our stakeholders.

We use a combination of internal and external stakeholder considerations to help identify our most material sustainability issues. The Compliance, Responsibility and Ethics Committee (CREC) oversee the identification of sustainability issues which helps to shape our sustainability strategy and guide our reporting.

The assessments identify the issues that represent shared value for both Hikma and our external stakeholders. The following is a list of material issues that we have identified through this process.

Supporting our patients and communities →

  • Access to healthcare

  • Promoting health awareness

  • Supporting education

  • Assisting families in need

Engaging and enabling our employees →

  • Employees’ training & development

  • Occupational health & safety

  • Employee diversity

  • Driving innovation

Minimising our environmental impact →

  • Emissions

  • Waste management

  • Water consumption

Corporate governance and internal policies 

  • Ethics & anti-corruption

  • Human rights & non-discrimination

  • Animal testing policy

  • Responsible supply chain policies

Looking ahead, we aim to expand our engagement with key stakeholders, particularly our employees, communities, investors and the wider health sector. By including broad stakeholder representation in how we identify material issues we will ensure that our focus and the resources we dedicate to sustainability remain relevant to our stakeholders and their priorities.
