Ipsen in Motion
Ipsen in Motion is our internal program promoting the health of all employees while raising money for worthwhile causes. In 2022, more than 1,100 people took part in 4 challenges raising over €40,000.
Supporting International Health Partners
We recently outperformed our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria in the revolving credit facility, leading to a donation of €70,000 to International Health Partners, a charity supporting people in some of the world’s most challenging places to get the medicines they need.
Disaster and crisis relief
In response to the Ukraine situation, Ipsen convened a crisis committee with two key objectives: ensuring the safety of our employees and maintaining access to treatments for patients. We have also responded to requests for humanitarian aid by donating medicines as well as a humanitarian contribution of €1.5 million divided between the Tulipe association and the International Red Cross in France.
Gender balance & pay equity
Ipsen is targeting a balanced-gender ratio for our Global Leadership Team by 2025 and we are very proud to report that ratio has already reached 47.6% in 2022.
We support pay equity through our Gender Pay Program.
