We at ESTEVE work to guarantee our development and economic growth in a sustainable, socially responsible way. Ever since its foundation, our Company has included these values in its business strategy through its marks of identity.
Beyond our chemical-pharmaceutical activities, ESTEVE's commitment to society is evidenced by a wide range of collaborations with persons and institutions on an entrepreneurial, public, non-profit basis.
In general, ESTEVE has established three main criteria to orient its collaborations: one, to prioritize the health sector -our natural scope of activity; two, to select entities according to their degree of affinity with ESTEVE's values and work practice; and three, to analyze the future potential of any possible collaboration, that is, trying to go beyond specific actions and betting on synergy development and long-term alliances.
Finally, in the international scope, ESTEVE tends to prioritize the projects of collaboration to development and environment protection in the countries where our company is mostly settled and active.
The Dr. Antonio Esteve Foundation was created in 1983 by Dr. Antoni Esteve i Subirana's sons and daughter to honor their father's memory. The Foundation is totally independent from ESTEVE's companies and endeavors to stimulate progress in pharmacotherapy by way of scientific communication and discussion. To this end, the Foundation organizes multidisciplinary international meetings where small groups of investigators discuss the results of their work. These discussions are further published in ESTEVE's Foundation Symposia collection.
A considerable proportion of ESTEVE's corporate responsibility is reflected in its collaboration with the Company's main stakeholders and by it explicitly supporting their activities.
