Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS)
Mayne Pharma understands the value of operating its business sustainably and protecting the environment in which we operate. We aim to:
- Reduce scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (CGG) emissions
- Increase energy efficiency or using renewable sources where feasible
- Continue to reduce environmental impact of active pharmaceutical ingredients used in its manufacturing and laboratory operations
- Reduce the overall mass of packaging materials per unit dose and increase the proportion of recycled and responsibly sourced materials across the supply chain
- Reduce water usage annually and use wastewater recycling opportunities where feasible
- Continue to develop further sustainable initiatives to reduce Mayne Pharma’s environmental footprint
Mayne Pharma uses an Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) management system, supported by policies, management plans, standard work practices and guidelines.
Our Board and senior leaders accept their ethical and legal responsibilities to provide and maintain safe, healthy and environmentally sustainable workplaces for our workers and to the extent we have control, customers, visitors, suppliers, contractors and communities.
Our operations are subject to various EHS laws and regulations and where required we maintain EHS licenses and registrations in compliance with applicable regulatory requirements. The Company has processes in place to monitor for changes to regulatory requirements and ensure ongoing compliance with any new requirements.
Primarily, our EHS policies and procedures are designed to ensure or exceed compliance with all EHS regulatory requirements and to continuously improve the health and safety of our workplaces and the environmental sustainability of our operations.
Our EHS function continues to refine and improve our standards, processes and performance through the ongoing development and maintenance of an EHS management system. This system focuses on identifying and assessing hazards and effectively managing EHS risks by applying sound risk management principles.
We monitor EHS outcomes on a regular basis and report performance data such as injury rates, utilities consumption, waste discharges and emissions. Operating sites in Salisbury and Greenville are subject to periodic inspections by the relevant authorities.
In Australia, the Salisbury operating facility complies with all South Australian and Federal legislative requirements in regards to the environment and the Company has all required permits for operation and obtains permission from SAWater for all discharge. The Company reports annually to the National Pollutant Inventory (NPI) on its emissions, which are below thresholds.
In the US, the Greenville site complies with all statutory and or regulatory safety and health requirements of the North Carolina Occupational Safety and Health Administration (NCOSHA) and environmental regulations and statutes of the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). The Greenville site maintains all requisite operating permits and keeps its emissions below applicable permit threshold limits as required.
In Australia, The Company has demonstrated its commitment to packaging sustainability by becoming a member of the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO) and reports annually with an action plan in place to reduce its environmental footprint.
Both operating sites are regularly audited by the relevant authorities such as the EPA in Australia and NCOSHA in the US. Key customers also audit the sites for EHS and in the US customers follow the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Initiative (PSCI) protocols as the Greenville site is a CDMO (Contract Development and Manufacturing Organisation). Audits by 3rd party consultants have been conducted periodically to determine gaps in the site EHS management systems and/or in determining ongoing compliance with applicable EHS regulations and industry best practices to promote continuous improvement of site safety operations.
