As we conduct our business, we have sought to gain the full trust of our customers and to grow alongside them in support of their mission; to adhere to the highest standards of business ethics in all locations in which we operate; and to build a strong security infrastructure and robust corporate culture that protects and preserves the intellectual property and data of our customers. We are implementing green manufacturing and sustainable operations across our business units, helping to improve the environment and the communities in which we operate. We are committed to and maintain an inclusive and vibrant workplace that fosters collaboration among and professional development for all WuXi AppTec employees.
Compliance with Local Regulatory Requirements
We strictly adhere to local laws and regulations in the regions in which we operate, and regularly take into account economic, social and environmental factors in our decision-making and operations.
Data Security and Privacy
A core tenet of our business is to preserve the trust, confidence and privacy of our customers. Data privacy and security is our highest priority. Since our founding, WuXi AppTec has maintained a strong track record based on a rigorous and multi-layered internal process – everything we discover, develop and deliver to our customers is secure, separated and protected. WuXi AppTec ensures that all personal identifiable information (PII) is anonymized and protected. Further, we maintain a robust system of corporate governance to ensure customers’ information is protected and used in accordance with the guidelines laid out by our customers and global privacy and healthcare policies.
Intellectual Property Protection
Integral to the continued success and competitiveness of our customers – and therefore a lifeline of our business – is their unique intellectual property (IP). Our approach to IP protection is embedded in our founding principles of integrity, unwavering commitment to global quality standards and world-class security. Our standards include a comprehensive IP management and infringement accountability system. We are dedicated to adhering to industry best practices in all of our facilities worldwide.
