Modern slavery in all its forms, including servitude, forced or compulsive labour and human trafficking, is completely unacceptable. It is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. Camurus recognizes that modern slavery is a global issue that may affect the own organisation and supply chains alike.  As a company Camurus is committed to preventing and eliminating any occurrences of modern slavery, in any form in our own businesses and in the supply chains.

Camurus operates according to its Code of Conduct which is based on our core values – passion, innovation, collaboration, ownership, and quality including sustainability. All our employees are required to follow our Code of Conduct.


Camurus also requests from suppliers and business partners that they conduct their business in a lawful and ethical manner. This includes preventing or eliminating modern slavery in all its forms.

Camurus acknowledges that there always can be a risk of modern slavery and trafficking within all businesses. Camurus’ supply chains include vendors of goods and services, which are required for the company’s own operations and for the external manufacturing of Camurus’ products. Camurus does not produce any products itself. Vendors are in general contracted centrally, but each regional office also has local vendors for minor supplies of local goods and services.

All vendors directly related to R&D, production, transportation, and distribution of Camurus’ products are continually assessed through Camurus’ vendor sustainability due diligence and risk assessment. The risk of human rights breaches and modern slavery are parameters in this assessment. All vendors in scope for Camurus’ due diligence and risk assessment are also required to adhere to Camurus’ Vendor Code of Conduct which includes requirements related to amongst others, respect of human rights, prevention, and mitigation of all kinds of child labour and forced labour including modern slavery in all its forms.

Reporting concerns

Camurus has in place a whistleblowing procedure and a digital whistleblowing platform, which is available internally via the company’s intranet and externally via Camurus’ website. Camurus takes suspected misconduct very seriously and the whistleblowing platform provides an easily accessible, secure, and reliable mechanism for employees and third parties to report suspected misconduct involving the company. Any matters reported are thoroughly investigated and any necessary remedial action is taken. In 2023, no reports were made regarding human rights violations or labour rights violations.

Camurus has not identified any occurrences of modern slavery (including servitude, forced or compulsive labour or human trafficking) in the own businesses or in the supply chains during 2023.

In 2023 were 99.5 percent of the company’s employees trained in Camurus’ Code of Conduct.

According to Camurus’ risk analysis from 2023, the risk level for sustainability risks in Camurus’ supply chains (such as human rights abuses or labour rights abuses, corruption, or environmental degradation) was considered to be medium, see Camurus’ Sustainability Report 2023, section Sustainability risks and opportunities, which can be found on the Camurus global corporate website.

In 2023 Camurus increased its focus on sustainability risks in its supply chains. The company created a vendor sustainability risk management process and procured a digital vendor management platform to support the company’s sustainable supply chain management in order to prevent and minimize risks of any form of modern slavery or other sustainability risks. For more information about Camurus’ vendor sustainability risk management process see Camurus’ Sustainability Report 2023, section “Business Ethics in the Supply Chain” which can be found on the Camurus global corporate website.
