ESTEVE's commitment to society is reflected in two main fields of action.
One, an intense R&D activity to develop new drug products that contribute to human well being; and two, a responsible action through comprehensive control of technical and production processes to guarantee safe, efficient and top-quality processes and products.
This leads to an offer of products and services that add value to our
stakeholders and provides suitable incomes to pursue investments in R&D and assets over time.
Research, process development and innovative drug products are part of ESTEVE's essence. The investment effort in R&D is usually proportional to the Company's turnover. The expenditure on innovation ranges around 11-12% of pharmaceutical turnover and around 8% of the Group's overall consolidated turnover. As a result, we now own more than 200 priority patents and in-house products can be found in more than 60 countries.> Innovation section
Our bet on ESTEVE's growth and future sustainability translates into important investment efforts in the different strategic fields, such as production and commercial structures in Spain and around the world, thus allowing a safe approach to the international growth process.> Global presence

We at ESTEVE understand that a continued process of risk analysis and the implementation of risk-reducing measures are vital to ensure our sustainability.
A risk map of the group was prepared for the purpose of knowing and agreeing the risks we are exposed to, applying measures to minimize the occurrence and/or effects of these risks and, in general, fostering a risk management culture. The risk map is updated periodically.
