Drogas Vigo is committed to creating a culture that promotes and stimulates honesty, transparency, sustainability, experience and cultural diversity. We believe that our pursuit of success must always be based on creating and promoting an environment of trust and respect with their employees, suppliers, customers, authorities and any person or entity with whom we interact.
These principles have created a culture in which integrity is an essential element in the development of our business. This culture has been embodied in our Code of Conduct, in which we describe the core values and business ethics that are embraced and respected throughout our organization.
Our Code of Conduct is not intended to respond to each of the many individualised situations to which our employees could potentially be exposed on a day-to-day basis. The Code of Conduct has the function of being able to alert of those situations that our employees consider could have ethical or legal implications that should always be respected, for which they have received the necessary training in order to help them make the right decisions in any situation of this nature.
Drogas Vigo considers the respect and protection of the health and safety of its employees and external collaborators to be of the utmost importance.
Drogas Vigo is committed to respecting the Health and Safety of all its employees and external collaborators, as well as to respecting the environment, extending this commitment equally to those people who provide their services within our working environment.

Drogas Vigo considers that sustainability goes beyond compliance with the laws and regulations in force, for which it has incorporated the concepts of Sustainable Distribution and Circular Economy in the first place of its Strategic Business Principles. This is understood as the will to satisfy present needs without putting at risk those of future generations.
Drogas Vigo works permanently to improve areas such as product protection / technical support to customers to optimize their formulae, search for improvements in the supply chain aimed at reducing the CO2 footprint, energy optimization and waste management.
