Biocon  /  Responsibility  /  Sustainability


Sustainable development is an integral part of Biocon’s business strategy. We are increasingly converging our activities to provide a rewarding workplace, be a responsible partner and create value in communities. Our aim is to achieve sustainable growth through positive social and environmental impacts.

Creating a safer workplace

How do we measure ROI? By the health and happiness of our biggest investment. Our people. At Biocon, everyone works towards a single purpose – to create a world that is safe and secure. Our world begins with our workplace. Which makes the health and safety of our people our responsibility and utmost priority.

Our workplace mandates equipment that meets the highest safety standards. We have established best in class EHS management systems conforming to ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 Standards at all our plants, to ensure our employees’ safety. Our Risk Assessment Programs include periodic audits of machinery, systems and processes to identify and assess possible risks on various parameters – both at an individual and organisational level. An integrated process safety management system includes best practices in industrial hygiene and exposure reduction.

The health and safety of our people is our responsibility and utmost priority and it helps everyone deliver better solutions.

Our environment stewardship moves beyond statutory compliances and best practices to create responsible business practices that guarantee environment sustainability.

An environment of change

People can only be as healthy as their planet. As a company committed to healthcare, it is our natural instinct to care for the planet as we care for our own. Our environment stewardship moves beyond
statutory compliances and best practices to create responsible business practices that guarantee environment sustainability. By continuously reducing our carbon footprint, recycling and reusing resources, switching to renewable energy, improving energy efficiency, minimising waste generation, and sustainable sourcing, we aim to create sustainable ecosystems for a better tomorrow.

Our environmental stewardship benchmarking through Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) has been positive over the years. This reflects that we are forging ahead in our sustainability journey and commitment to improve our ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) performance.

Breathing cleaner air





Biocon’s best practices in energy and environmental management have not only delivered significant efficiencies and savings, they are also helping people lead healthier lives. We replaced conventional fossil fuels with piped natural gas for steam generation. More than 50% of our Bangalore units are driven by wind power. We are also using solar power at a small scale which further reduces usage of fossil fuels. Regular reviews of energy distribution and utilisation optimise our energy consumption. All manufacturing units continue to reduce consumption of electricity for lighting from the savings achieved, by replacement of energy intensive conventional lighting with high efficiency LED fixtures. Energy efficient layout and facilities are incorporated at the design stage of projects to make them energy efficient with minimal resource usage.
