Code of conduct

In 2017 BioPorto established our Code of Conduct. The view our Code of Conduct - click here:

Corporate Social Responsibility

BioPorto is aware of its social responsibility and endeavors to improve its social and environmental conditions. In several areas, BioPorto fulfills its responsibility solely by complying with current law, but in other areas, the company’s responsibility has been expanded to include preventive activities for optimizing the various conditions. It is important to BioPorto to highlight these efforts vis-à-vis its customers, suppliers, stockholders, other stakeholders, etc., to ensure that the outside world trusts the company to live up to its social responsibility. For this reason, BioPorto continues its accession to the Global Compact, whose ten principles for social commitment as defined by the UN constitute a global frame of reference. At the same time, through our commitment, we will try to encourage the parties with whom we interact to also shoulder their share of these responsibilities.
