Corporate Social Responsibility

As a growing business, Sibelius recognises the importance of developing its operations in accordance to the highest standards of sustainability and ethical business practice.

COMMITMENT TO THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

Sibelius has aligned its CSR practice around the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals – a set of goals described by the UN as the blueprint to achieving a better and more sustainable future for all.

Our goals are:

Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages

  • Access to medicines
    Our business operations are built around the development of affordable, scientifically validated, botanical health supplements to address specific health conditions; with a particular focus on conditions associated with ageing.
  • Occupational health and safety
    We allocate the highest priority to safety at work and associated staff training, and provide medical insurance for all staff.

Ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting life-long learning opportunities for all

  • Capacity building
    We invest in building staff skills and capability. All staff have an annual training plan, formulated and agreed in discussion with each individual staff member, where the company supports specific training inputs to improve and develop skills and capability.
  • Youth employment
    We offer internships to students with an interest in working in the sector, to help build their skills, experience and employability.

Ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns

  • Sustainable sourcing
    We have traceability back to the source of production for all our botanical ingredients; ensuring that these come from either managed production sources meeting UK production standards, or from wild-harvested sources meeting established Good Wild Harvesting Practice standards.
  • Responsible disposal
    We have a continual focus on minimising waste within company operations and improving the amount of waste generated at the company offices and laboratory. We are also committed to a process of continual improvement regarding the level of recycling for, and labelling of, packaging materials used across the supply chain for our products.

COMMITMENT TO OUR COMMUNITY

Sibelius is committed to supporting the community through charity partnerships and team activities. Every two years, the team votes for an organisation or initiative to support for this period – ensuring that their activities and objectives match our company’s mission and allegiance to the SDGs.
