Almac Group today announces the release of the company’s 2023 Corporate Social Responsibility report, which highlights Almac’s progress and commitments to our people, our planet, and the communities in which we operate.

The report also provides insights into Almac’s client delivery across the drug development pipeline, and a look into the company’s ambitious growth strategy posed to sustain best-in-class service offerings to clients and bolster innovation.

Alan Armstrong, Chairman and CEO, commented: “Almac’s mission to advance human health is the driving force behind everything we do as an organisation. We are exceedingly proud of how we have delivered on our responsibilities this year—particularly, our progress towards our commitment to reach net zero by 2045, our further investment in health and wellbeing offerings for our people, and our contributions to our communities.

“We are also proud to recognise the essential role our colleagues have played in our success – by living out our mission each day, they are collectively impacting human health across the globe.”
