Respecting the environment

Cosmo follows an environmentally sustainable policy by promoting sustainable use of natural resources, encouraging waste minimisation and recycling. Cosmo is committed to operating in an environmentally and socially responsible manner and to the responsible management of manufacturing and non-manufacturing processes to reduce impacts on the environment. Cosmo continuously monitors compliance with applicable environmental, health and safety laws and regulations, and the requirements of its permits and licences.

The Company:

  • monitors the quality of the ambient air and the protection of the water resources;
  • evaluates the site programmes for the protection of the environment and the health and safety of employees and neighbours;
  • manages waste disposal in compliance with the local regulations;
  • designs, constructs, maintains and manages its plant and systems in accordance with best practices;

The Company is committed to a programme of continual improvement in environmental, health and safety performance by making it an integral part of all its operations. As a pharmaceutical company, Cosmo is not directly obliged under REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical Substances), a European Community regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006), but constantly monitors its suppliers (i.e. labels and packaging materials) to assess their compliance to that regulation.
