IVI discovers, develops, and delivers vaccines to protect communities in resource-limited settings from deadly and disruptive infectious diseases. In pursuit of our mission and our broader aims to help realize the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, IVI commits to working sustainably and fairly to limit our harm to the environment and champion values of equality, inclusion, and ethical governance.
An Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) framework measures the sustainability and societal impact of an organization.
- Environmental criteria include energy and resource consumption, waste management, and carbon emissions that contribute to climate change
- Social criteria address our relationships with each other and the work sites and communities where IVI conducts research. Examples of social factors include labor relations, diversity, and gender equality
- Governance addresses IVI’s internal system of practices, procedures and ethics to make decisions, comply with the local law, and meet the needs of our external stakeholders, which include governments, other international organizations, industry partners, and more
