Company values that make us dynamic
Vetoquinol’s policies and values contribute to the Group’s successful operation. They are common standards, for work and professional behaviour. Everyone is expected to apply and live these values in order to maintain and strengthen the Group’s culture and presence.
Vetoquinol’s values are a reference framework guiding each person’s behaviour in their daily work. The values make it possible for employees from different fields and from around the world, to better collaborate, and also contribute to greater consistency in actions and decisions. These values are reflected by the expected professional behaviours that are integrated into our annual performance appraisal process for every employee.
Maintaining our ethical standards
Vetoquinol makes sure that its development is consistent with legislation, ethical standards and individual rights, and encourages healthy competition. To achieve this, a Good Business Practice Guide is incorporated into the Employee Handbook.
The rules contained within the Guide define what Vetoquinol expects from each employee around the world, irrespective of their reporting level. This ensures that everyone is acting in compliance with Vetoquinol’s ethical standards, with respect to competitors, customers and suppliers, as well as safeguarding Vetoquinol assets and preventing any risk of fraud or corruption.
Protecting the environment
Vetoquinol’s company values include caring for the planet. We’re committed to analysing our impact on the environment. We strive to protect natural resources and biodiversity. And we limit our pollution and consumption as we develop our animal health products.
We also choose our suppliers carefully. Their methods of transportation, manufacturing and packaging procedures, and distribution channels all need to respect the environment. The Industrial and Quality Department oversees these areas.
The Health, Safety and Environment Department uses standard indicators to measure progress in the fight against global warming and use of resources. It also analyses the risks of environmental harm continuously and in major projects to propose and implement suitable prevention and protection measures. It is informed of projects or decisions that affect or have a risk of affecting one of the three aspects of Sustainable Development (environment, social and economic).
