AMCo short-listed for International CSR Award
AMCo has been nominated for the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Initiative of the Year Award sponsored by the charity, International Health Partners (IHP), which donates medicines to people in need across the world.
AMCo is one of four firms - Accord, Alvogen and Walgreens Boot Alliance - to be shortlisted for the Global Generics and Biosimilars Awards 2015.
The winner will be announced during the Awards ceremony in Madrid, Spain, on Tuesday 13th October 2015.
AMCo has donated medicines and funds to IHP to help people in the Middle East, India and Nepal. This includes immunisation programmes for children to prevent diseases like diphtheria, tuberculosis, polio and tetanus. The company's donations have also helped survivors of the Nepal earthquake with survival kits and providing safe places for children to play away from the devastated areas.
The company also regularly supports the global charity SOS Children's villages which provides homes and help for homeless and disadvantaged children where they can grow up in a safe, supportive and loving environment.
CEO John Beighton said: "This is the first time we have entered these awards so to be shortlisted is great news. We believe in helping where we can with medicines and funds. We are always happy to support IHP and the incredible work it does in bringing medicines to people across the world who would otherwise not have access to a decent level of healthcare."
