בזמן שהמצב סביב COVID-19 ממשיך להתפתח, טבע שואפת לספק אספקה ​​ללא הפרעה של תרופות למיליוני המטופלים שהיא משרתת ברחבי העולם. אנו מבצעים הערכות רציפות של המצב, והודות לתכנון ומאמצים רבים, לצד פעילויות רבות לשימור רציפות עסקית, אנו כרגע לא צופים השפעה מהותית על פעילות טבע.

כוח האדם של טבע

  • הבריאות והבטיחות של כוח האדם ושל שותפינו העסקיים נותרה בעדיפות עליונה.
  • טבע הגבילה את הנסיעות העסקיות הלא חיוניות למדינות (ומהן) בהן עשוי להיות סיכון גבוה להדבקה.
  • כל המדינות המושפעות הקימו צוותי תגובה מקומיים העוקבים אחר הוראות רשויות הבריאות המקומיות והמייעצים לעובדים בהנחיות מקומיות רלוונטיות.
  • אנו תומכים בעובדינו, כולל אלו העובדים מהבית, וממנפים טכנולוגית פגישות וירטואליות על פי הצורך.

אספקת התרופות שלנו

  • אנו פועלים באופן יזום ונוקטים צעדים בכדי להבטיח את מהימנות שרשרת האספקה ​​העולמית שלנו, וכן מזהים הזדמנויות לעסקי הפארמה וה- API שלנו בכדי להתמודד עם מחסור אפשרי בשווקים המושפעים.

השפעה על הפעילות שלנו

  • מתוך רשת ה- API הענפה של טבע, רק אתר API אחד קטן בסין נסגר וההכנות להפעלתו מחדש מתקדמות.
  • טבע שואפת להמשיך ולהבטיח אספקת תרופות ללא הפרעה למיליוני המטופלים שהיא משרתת ברחבי העולם.
