Human Rights as Our Top Management Philosophy
Celltrion considers human rights as its top management philosophy and does its best to protect the human rights of executives, employees and stakeholders through various human rights policies and human rights protection measures.
Human Rights Policy
Celltrion prioritizes human rights as our top management philosophy and to respect the human rights of all stakeholders, it has established and disclosed to the public a human rights policy based on international human rights norms, such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights(UDHR) and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs).
Human Rights Management
To practice human rights management, Celltrion analyzes actual and potential human rights impacts and prepares protective measures. We conduct anonymous awareness surveys among employees to select and manage issues that require management. We also established a separate management process to conduct human rights impact assessments. In addition, we transparently disclose improvement results through continuous human rights risk monitoring and further expand the scope of management and evaluation to include partners to create a culture in which everyone's rights are respected.
Celltrion listens to employee opinions and endeavors to address grievances through online and offline grievance channels such as an internal anonymous communication channel (Tongnamu), Labor-management Council (Employee Council), Grievance Committee and counseling center.
Human Rights Training
In order to promote the culture of mutual respect and understanding of diversity among employees, Celltrion introduced training programs related to the prevention of sexual harassment, improving the perceptions regarding the disabled, and preventing workplace harassment. We will continue to expand training courses to improve employees' perceptions on human rights and reinforce implementation.

Open Innovation with Bio-Startups
Celltrion has always been at the frontier for building, supporting and vitalizing open innovation eco-system in the Korean bio industry. Starting with our collaboration with 'Incheon Startup Park' from 2020, we have partnered with various industry experts including 'Seoul Bio Hub', Korea national bio cluster, to run incubation and acceleration programs for young bio-startups.
Localizing Raw/Sub Materials
In preparation for disruptions in the procurement of raw materials due to global trends whereby countries are trying to protect their own industries, Celltrion, together with related organizations, has been pursuing localization of materials, parts, equipment and raw materials in the domestic biotech industry.
ISO22301 refers to Business Continuity Management System (BCMS), a part of the global ISO standards. Due to international circumstances, supply chain disruptions, or natural disasters, businesses may see their key business operations being paralyzed, which can lead to damaged business confidence, customer churn, and other management risks. Therefore, to guarantee stable biological drug supply, Celltrion established business continuity management system to protect its safety and confidence with its customers.
