Sustainability and ESG is a priority at CSI

It’s Sustainability Month at CSI and we will be focusing on all things ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance). 

Clinical Services International (CSI) achieved the Platinum EcoVadis award, scoring in the Top 1% of companies rated for categories ‘Environment’, 'Labour & Human Rights', 'Sustainable Procurement' and 'Ethics', showing our commitment to a greener future in clinical trial supply.

ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance and is a framework used to evaluate and measure the sustainability and societal impact of a company.

🌳Environmental: This aspect focuses on how a company performs in terms of its impact on the environment. It includes factors such as carbon emissions, energy efficiency, waste management and resource conservation.

CSI launched the robust Green Plan program in December 2022 to provide clear guidance that creating a greener environment is a key responsibility to minimize negative impacts on the environment on all 5 key aspects below: 

🚮Waste reduction

🛒Sustainable Procurement

✈️Carbon emissions

💡Energy efficiency

🌿Resource conservation

We work diligently with our partners at each stage of the clinical supply chain to share and implement best sustainable practices.

🧑‍🤝‍🧑 Social: This aspect assesses how a company manages its relationships with employees, clients, suppliers, and the communities in which it operates. Social factors include: 

✅Labour practices

✅Diversity and inclusion

✅Human rights and ethics

✅Community support 


CSI ensures that every step of our clinical trial supply chain is environmentally conscious, socially responsible and governed with integrity. This begins with supporting six local and global charities and focusing on the training and wellbeing of our staff.

Integrating social considerations alongside environmental and governance factors is essential for building trust, promoting sustainability and advancing responsible clinical trial supply chain practices.

💼 Governance: This aspect examines the quality of a company's corporate governance structure and practices. In the context of clinical trial supply chains, the 'Governance' aspect of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) refers to the policies, procedures, and structures in place to ensure that ethical principles, regulatory requirements, and industry standards are upheld throughout the clinical trial supply process. 

Our policies include, but are not limited to: 

💠 Supplier Diversity Programme

💠Environmental and Sustainability Policy

💠Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Policy

💠Modern slavery Policy

💠Equality and Diversity Policy

💠Anti-corruption Guidelines

💠Sustainable Procurement Policy

💠Human Rights Policy

By prioritizing governance principles alongside environmental and social considerations, organizations can promote responsible and sustainable clinical research practices.
