Values

We believe in our values and our vision. It’s clear in our behaviour and in the way we do business.

We want to play a key role in leveraging our renewable specialty chemicals to bring value driven, sustainable solutions to our customers. Our core values are built on Collaboration, Accountability, Innovation, and Respect.


Collaboration: Creating strong partnerships. Celebrating success. Working together for a brighter future.
Accountability: Doing the right thing, in the right way, for the right reasons.
Innovation: Believe it, make it, share it
Respect: For others, for yourself, for the world we live in. Every day, all the time.

Responsible research and innovation

Our employees are aware of their obligation to use science and technology responsibly to design our customer solutions. We have an embedded health and safety culture, and our projects incorporate Responsible Research, and Innovation (RRI) elements within their framework. We also collaborate with social scientists to ensure we ask the right questions and consider viewpoints from a range of stakeholders. Ultimately, we need to be confident that we are doing the right thing for the right reasons.

Our staff regularly engage in education and outreach programmes and many of them are active STEM ambassadors (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Our activities range from visiting schools and universities as guest speakers to hosting school students on work experience and offering internship placements for university students. Our scientists also enjoy taking time out of the lab to share their passion for STEM subjects by participating in science festivals and similar events.


The Nagoya Protocol

The Nagoya Protocol is an international agreement developed to create fair and equitable benefit sharing when accessing genetic resources, to further one of the key objectives of the UN’s Convention on Biological Diversity. To implement the Nagoya Protocol, the European Commission adopted Regulation (EU) No. 511/2014 in October 2014, which was made part of English law through the Nagoya Protocol (Compliance) Regulations 2015. One of the key principles is that anyone wishing to access genetic resources from another country must demonstrate comprehensive due diligence.

Green Biologics is committed to a responsible approach to research and innovation, and we have taken steps to implement the Nagoya protocol in our organisation. When sourcing material within the scope of the Nagoya Protocol we take all reasonable steps to ensure that we and our suppliers have demonstrated appropriate due diligence and have complied with all national access legislation governing the access to and use of such materials.
