Sustainability Committee

The Board of Directors is ultimately responsible for the company’s sustainability performance. The CEO reports on the progress of the company’s sustainability work at every Board meeting.

In 2020, BioGaia established a Sustainability Committee comprising representatives from across the company, including a Board member and the CEO. This Committee’s work is headed by BioGaia’s Sustainability Manager and the Committee meets four times per year. During 2022, the Committee focused on the overall sustainability strategy, and its stated targets for managing environmental impact with a particular focus on the company’s packaging, products and transportation. Additionally, the Committee focused on the ambitions for this year’s Sustainability Report and how it will be integrated into the annual report. In addition to the meetings in the sustainability committee, management and key individuals in the company have also been involved in updating the company’s materiality assessment. For more information about how the company is governed, refer to the Corporate Governance Report.
