Welcome to our Integrated Annual Report 2020!
Our Integrated Annual Report 2020 – Adapting for Better Care – aims to provide all interested stakeholders with the best possible information on how UCB is creating value for patients with severe diseases and about how we care for our employees, for communities, and for our planet, now and into the future.
Caring for Patients
We put patients and their individual experiences at the heart of everything we do – from developing differentiated solutions for specific patient populations, to providing access for those who need them.
Caring for our People
Creating the culture for UCB colleagues to thrive, and caring for each other, is essential for delivering on our patient value ambition and for generating wider societal value.
Caring for the Planet
Human health and the health of our planet are deeply intertwined. We’re reducing our environmental footprint across our business activities and operations, keeping in mind both current and future generations.
