EHS at Primopus

Primopus has established a HSE management system,  on the « Plan – Do – Check – Act» cycle (PDCA) principles, to ensure that it can meet its HSE aspirations.

Biodiversity at Primopus

Primopus is developing its CDMO capability in Basel on a site which is being reinvigorated and invested in. It is setting ambitious carbon reduction plans: net zero carbon utilities by 2028. Deccan Fine Chemicals have implemented a wealth of initiatives from tree planting to wildlife habitat preservation.

We have created this brief video presentation below that outlines these various initiatives to date and yet there is much more to do. We hope this example will inspire others to follow suit, just as we are inspired by those calling for more positive initiatives. ‘Embracing Exceptional Life’ means we have to value all life on our planet to preserve it for future generations.
