Generation Ipsen – For Positive Change
At Ipsen, our commitment to responsibility is lived through an identity that unites our employees around a common vision. We call it Generation Ipsen – For Positive Change.
Through Generation Ipsen, we are fostering a culture of integrity and responsibility that touches every part of our business. A culture where we go beyond commitments, and where each of us understands the individual role we must play in shaping positive change. We define specific goals and proactively set out how we will deliver on these – inspiring and empowering action that will ensure we create a better, healthier world for future generations.
Generation Ipsen focuses on driving positive action across four pillars:
We are committed to transparency at every step, and continually challenge ourselves to go beyond what is expected – doing what is right, not what is easy. Across all our initiatives, care is taken to align with the United Nations’ internationally recognized Sustainable Development Goals, and we remain firmly supportive of these major priorities.
Ipsen is focused on always working in an ethical manner, with the highest possible standards of business integrity. This is outlined within our Code of Conduct and, in December 2021, we also received ISO 37001 certification for our anti-corruption management systems.
In 2022, Ipsen’s industry-leading efforts around CSR have received exceptional recognition from Le Point. Ipsen has been awarded #1 for the pharmaceuticals sector and #9 out of all 250 companies listed. To put this in context, just two years ago we were ranked #140 of the 250 and #10 in pharmaceuticals.

Patients at the heart of everything we do
Patients are the heart of everything we do. Our focus on the fields of oncology, rare disease and neuroscience enables us to develop an ever-greater understanding of patients’ needs and experiences. Our objective is to take patient-centricity to the next level by impacting medical care and patient outcomes in our therapeutic areas, notably by building a deep understanding of the patient journey. Patient insights are essential to challenge the status quo, while collaboration with healthcare systems can bring about advancements for patients around the world.Learn more about Ipsen’s approach to working with patients and advocacy organizations
