A dedicated UCB team is setting annual CSR priorities which are reviewed and approved by UCB’s Executive Committee and Board of Directors. The team reports to the Executive Head Talent and Company Reputation, who is accountable for matters relating to social responsibility and sustainability at the Executive Committee level.

CSR Board brings together a multidisciplinary team and oversees the activities of the CSR team.

The CSR team focuses on managing and continuously enhancing the CSR reporting procedures and instruments, while leaning on the valuable input of a company-wide CSR network. The UCB CSR Report network is composed of more than 250 UCB colleagues worldwide. Furthermore, benchmarks are being set against which patients, their caregivers, shareholders and other stakeholders can measure our progress in the coming years and against which we can be held accountable.

Performance indicators and reporting

image description

To measure progress, key performance indicators are assessed according to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines, which provide an internationally recognised and accepted framework for CSR reporting.

This approach was voluntarily adopted by UCB and has been adapted to conform with UCB’s own requirements. The indicators in the 2015 CSR Report are “in accordance” with the Core Option of the GRI G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. The 2015 CSR Report received an assurance report based upon a thorough review by an external auditor.

UCB is committed to continue reporting according to the GRI G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines.
