Corporate Social Responsibility
NovaBiotics believes that our continued success is dependent on creating a sustainably innovative culture within the business. Our staff, the environment and the community are central to this and therefore components of the Company’s core operational values.
Safety, Regulation and the Environment
As a minimum, we will meet or exceed all relevant legislation as we carry out the research (and administrative) tasks required to deliver the Company’s drug design and development plans. Where no legislation exists, appropriate internal standards, benchmarked against and beyond best practices elsewhere, have been developed and implemented and are components of a fully auditable quality management and policy system.
NovaBiotics is fully committed to minimising any impact its operational activities might have on the environment and through ongoing internal review and external audits actively looks for opportunities to improve its activities wherever possible.
Education and the Local Community
NovaBiotics is actively engaged in a number of programmes promoting biomedical research and commercial-academic links with both of Aberdeen’s universities as well as some further afield.
Through our links with local Academies, we promote the science career opportunities available to local pupils; both through site visits to NovaBiotics and science clubs within schools.
We remain passionate about developing the next generation of local science talent in what is a key, emerging employment sector in the North East of Scotland. To further enhance this, many members of NovaBiotics staff are STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematical) Ambassadors actively inspiring young people in science. The team routeinely visits schools, colleges and both local universities to engage with pupils and students on careers in biomedical sciences.
