AFT Pharmaceuticals

For AFT Pharmaceuticals (AFT), sustainability means aligning their goals with the interests of society. They believe that by acting sustainably they contribute positively towards the development of the world.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of global initiatives set up by the United Nations for everyone to contribute to. For AFT, the SDGs are a way to see which areas of sustainability they're directly contributing to and how their

community initiatives relate to a larger vision for positive change. AFT’s Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) framework remains under development and will continue to be progressed over time.
