CSR

The many successful operations of AMARA allow it to systematically expand its corporate social responsibility activities. We believe that conducting a business involves a duty to work for the society.

We want the initiatives of the Pharmaceutical Company AMARA to contribute to the sustainable development of local communities in the locations where our offices operate.

A growing problem of healthcare professionals is hand skin irritation caused by continuous sanitisation; that is why our company has donated to doctors from John Paul II Hospital in Krakow 500 dermocosmetics with urea from the AMADERM line. The donated cosmetic products are intended for extremely dry and irritated skin. They improve the working comfort of the doctors, who put their health at risk every day to help others. In this way AMARA has expressed its gratitude for the efforts and dedication involved in combatting the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.

Our business would not be possible without the resources of the natural environment. Being aware of this, we actively seek new solutions and try to optimise the ways to utilise raw materials. We are in the process of developing strategies to use modern technologies in order to increase production without any negative impact on the environment.

We want to be the best neighbor and support for the residents of the areas where our offices operate.
We ensure an increase in employment in local communities – over 300 people currently work in the Cracow manufactory and this is just the beginning of our development!

Looking to the future

We are looking for new eco-friendly product formulas and their packaging.

We are increasing the share of green energy and improving energy consumption effectiveness.

We are looking for solutions that will reduce water consumption during the production process.

We build environmental awareness among customers and employees by organizing actions promoting environmental protection.

We are planning to introduce an environmental management system at the Krakow-based pharmaceutical plant, as well as to identify significant aspects of the company’s activities, measure them and set targets in terms of the impact off our operations on the climate. We will achieve these targets by 2030.

We are monitoring the decisions of the authorities associated with the fight against climate change, and every day we are trying to introduce solutions aimed at reducing the negative impact of our operations on the environment.

Recent initiatives

A helping hand for helping hands – Due to the growing problem of irritated hand skin of health care workers, caused by continuous disinfection, our company donated 500 dermocosmetics with urea of ​​the AMADERM line to the medics of the John Paul II Specialist Hospital in Krakow. Donated cosmetic products are intended for the care of extremely dry and irritated skin. Their action improves the comfort of work of medics who risk their health every day to help others.

Buffet for bees  – The action showed that together we are able to create a new asylum for insects – a place where bees will be able to freely obtain nectar from flowers. The involvement of 10,000 of our contractors – pharmacists meant that together we created a whole hectare of a flower meadow, and this led to the production of a huge amount – as much as 40 kilograms! – honey. Without bees and insects, which are the foundation of our ecosystem, flowers would not be able to thrive, and this would threaten agricultural and natural disaster.

Support of the Rak’n’Roll Foundation – We got involved in the project of the book “50 Business Personalities. We help”, created for the Rak’n’Roll Foundation. Win a life! Magdalena Bogucka, President of the Management Board of the AMARA Pharmaceutical Plant, was one of the book’s heroines. The entire amount from the sale was credited to the account of the Rak’n’Roll Foundation. Win Life!, which supports our compatriots and friends from a war-torn country, as well as oncology patients. We have proved that we are not indifferent to the most important issue, which is the life and health of every human being.

#PomagamUkrainie – In solidarity with all the victims of the act of aggression against our neighbors, our company decided to support Ukraine and Ukrainians by donating the necessary medical supplies (i.e. salicylic alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, disinfectant liquid), which we produce. In this way, we expressed our support and showed that we are not indifferent to the suffering of others.
