Dear CSL Colleagues,
I am pleased to introduce our third edition of CSL's Code of Responsible Business Practice (The Code). Like our first two editions, this important publication has been approved by the board and carries our full support and commitment.
With each edition of our Code we account for a growing organisation, both in employees and geographic reach. The Code critically sets out the rights and obligations we have individually as employees and affirms our commitment to our stakeholders for the highest standard of conduct in all that we do.
When it was founded more than a century ago, CSL made a promise to save lives and protect the health of Australians. Today, that very same promise is stronger and more vibrant than ever around the world, with more than 17,000 employees across the globe and our life-saving products in over 60 countries. Our Values are the foundation and our Code the guideline for how we conduct business and deliver on our promise to patients, partners and other stakeholders.
I encourage you to review the Code and understand how it impacts you, your role and the way in which you represent CSL in business and the wider community.
Our success and the promise we make to patients is built on your commitment to strengthen and protect our company and its reputation.
CEO & MANAGING DIRECTOR
