#EveryStoryCounts: Investing in the research of rare diseases to make life happen

Main Areas of Action

Chiesi Group seeks to establish an intimate dialogue with patients, their families, and caregivers to hear about real life experiences in the daily management of their pathology.
In this context, we streamlined our brand architecture based on the three areas Air, Rare, and Care. These names are inspired by the non-medical language patients use.

Products & Patients

Caring for people informs all of our decisions and shapes our ethical guidance. It is the very reason we exist.
We do everything we can to provide care that is empathic, appropriate and provides continuous treatment, even for the rarest of disease.

Processes - Environment

We feel a profound sense of urgency to safeguard the biosphere. We therefore plan to become carbon neutral by 2030 on direct greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (scope 1) and indirect GHG emissions from purchased electricity and heat (scope 2) and by 2035 on all the other indirect GHG emissions (scope 3).
We submitted our commitment to the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi), the most solid reference framework worldwide that drives ambitious climate action in the private sector by enabling companies to set science-based emissions reduction targets in line with the Paris Agreement goals.

#EveryStoryCounts: What if we make our ICT Sustainable?

We add maximum credibility and trust in our commitment by working with the internationally recognised PAS 2060 specification process to demonstrate the value and efficacy of Chiesi’s plans, including mitigation actions, the carbon offsetting of the residual GHG emissions and the verification by an independent third party.

Our plan to Carbon Neutrality includes the following reduction targets:


of the direct GHG emissions (Scope 1) and the indirect GHG emissions associated with the purchase of electricity and heat (Scope 2) by 2030.


of absolute scope 3 GHG emissions from the use of sold products by 2035, thanks to a new low global warming potential propellant used for inhaler devices.

We designed a strategy that adheres to the most authoritative international standards, in order to reduce our emission.

Processes - People

We strengthened our internal culture in order to be more inclusive, fair and positive.
We created a system of New Values that represents the Group including all its cultural perspectives and diversities. Following the creation of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee in 2019, we established a specific Gender Equality Committee.
Furthermore, we continued to invest in training and ensured that all our training and procedures were available remotely, to meet the pandemic emergency.

Our new values have been included in all People Management processes.

Processes - Covid Emergency

Guaranteeing a safe and healthy workplace for our employees has always been our priority. Since the Covid-19 emergency was declared, the Chiesi Emergency Management teams (CEM), a dedicated task force at corporate level and in every affiliate, has constantly monitored the evolution of the situation. We put in place several contingency measures to support the health and well-being of employees, patients and partners, following guidance provided by institutions and the World Health Organisation. These actions are focused on four main areas of activity: protecting, sharing, informing, and training.

Global Value Chain

To positively impact both people and planet, we need the support and engagement of all business partners. 2020 was the year in which we globally implemented our Code of Interdependence. The Code is Chiesi’s version of a code of conduct and has been drawn up as part of a joint initiative with our strategic suppliers. It changes the concept of a supply chain into an ecosystem, which recognises each of us as essential to the others within a process of mutual learning and co-evolution.

Commercial Distributors

We implemented our Code of Interdependence at a global level:


Countries that translated the Code into their local languages and made it available on Chiesi’s local websites.

We rolled out a unique Supplier Qualification approach to all our business partners globally:


suppliers were screened through social, governance and environmental lenses.

A qualification process that incorporates sustainability parameters was rolled out at affiliate level to create a coherent governance setup and the appropriate conditions to trigger suppliers’ engagement. In 2020, the new qualification process, active at Headquarters level since 2019, was also extended to four affiliates (Brazil, France, Germany, UK), representing more than 80% of the global expenditure.

We are placing an increased attention on sourcing local suppliers within our procurement process. This will support the economic development of our communities.
