Sustainability and ethics are vital for Orion and we demand a lot from ourselves and our partners in these areas. Our operations help to build the well-being of people, animals and society. At the same time, we strive to minimise the impact of our operations on the environment.

We ensure the availability of pharmaceuticals and the implementation of patient safety at every stage of the life cycle of our products. We also care about each and every Orionee – about their skills and well-being. We adhere to high ethical standards in our operations and respect human rights throughout our value chain. When it comes to environmental matters, we want to be at the top of our game and bear responsibility for our impact on the environment. 

Everyone’s efforts are needed to support sustainable development and combat climate change. That’s why we’re constantly raising the bar in our own operations and encouraging others to do the same. Together with our partners, we will continue to make pharmaceutical supply chains more sustainable. 

The themes of our Sustainability Agenda


We always put patient safety first, which is reflected in everything we do. Orion plays an important role in enabling the availability of many medicines in Finland and globally. We closely monitor our pharmaceutical production to ensure the quality, safety and efficacy of our products. We continuously monitor the potential adverse effects of our medicines and prevent counterfeit medicines, which are hazardous to health, from entering the market. We also seek to ensure that our products are always used correctly with the help of a summary of product characteristics, which is the result of long-term research.
