Hovione is committed to doing its part for a better world.


Hovione is a family business and its paramount goal is the construction of a robust and prosperous business for the long term that serves society by harnessing science and industry. To ensure our long‑term viability we will contribute positively to economic, environmental and social sustainability. These concerns are embedded in our core values and purpose. Sustainability is fully integrated into the business strategy and makes the best use of science, innovative technologies, systems and business practice to ensure we endeavor to protect the environment, giving back to society while conducting business in a responsible way.

Everywhere we operate, we commit to do so in a manner that keeps us well within compliance of legal requirements whether with regards to the environment, occupational health or safety. We use our business sense to take sound and long‑term decisions that allow us all to be proud of everything we do.

Our duty largely exceeds the strict legal compliance of our business conduct and we take our responsibility to the Community seriously: we believe we can contribute to a better society. Hovione wants to get involved with the local communities everywhere we operate, supporting those that help others through our Corporate Social Responsibility, in the following lines of intervention:

  • Education and Culture
  • Social, Health and Well‑being
  • Sports
  • Safety and Environment
