drawing upon nearly eight years of experience in csr survey, southern weekly took full account of the features of pharmaceutical and food industries and set industry-specific indicators in addition to the standard csr indicators. these industry-specific indicators focus on whether the manufacture is strictly gmp-compliant, whether a monitoring system is set up for adverse reaction and whether a recall system is established and implemented. these indicators also require enterprises to pass the new haccp certification and focus on corporate responsibility towards consumers, investors, employees, communities, government and economy and corporate information disclosure responsibility. on such basis, this survey examined the fulfillment of corporate social responsibility of china’s listed companies in pharmaceutical and food industries.
fosun pharma has upheld the principle of sustainable development and has proactively undertaken its social responsibility. with progress made in terms of economic responsibility, environmental protection, occupational health and safety, staff development and community welfare, the company met the consolidated csr performance indicators with remarkable success.
