Value Creation Examples

DFE Pharma

Contributing Source: 2023 Sustainability Report

Since acquiring a 50% stake in 2019, CVC has collaborated closely with DFE Pharma to establish a robust sustainability governance framework. This effort included setting up a dedicated sustainability committee, appointing the chief operating officer as the executive sponsor, and designating a director responsible for achieving non-financial targets. DFE Pharma’s sustainability strategy is guided by its purpose of ‘Your medicines, our solutions. Moving to a healthier world’, focusing on enhancing sustainability and future-proofing operations through energy efficiency, regulatory compliance, and readiness for the Corporate Sustainable Reporting Directive (CSRD). Ensuring employee safety and promoting workforce equity are also core priorities. CVC facilitated the development of DFE Pharma’s sustainability report, aligning with Global Reporting Initiative standards, and collaborated with co-investors to accelerate the company’s decarbonization efforts, with targets expected for validation by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) in 2024.

Since CVC's investment, we have partnered closely with our portfolio brands to advance sustainability initiatives. This includes collaborating on the development of products featuring reusable and recyclable packaging, as well as implementing emission reduction strategies through the redesign of manufacturing processes and increased adoption of clean energy. We facilitated the establishment of a dedicated internal division focused on sustainability. In July 2022, FineToday unveiled its ambitious FineToday and Tomorrow 2030 vision, setting key objectives to integrate sustainability across its operations. The company committed to Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), achieving validation of its emission reduction targets aligned with 1.5ºC scenarios by January 2024. FineToday also supports the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), releasing its inaugural TCFD report in March 2023 and its first voluntary sustainability report in May 2023 to enhance transparency and guide climate-related activities and disclosures. In September 2023, FineToday was awarded the EcoVadis Gold medal for sustainability, recognizing its placement in the top 5% of companies rated by EcoVadis and highlighting our commitment to advancing sustainable practices across our portfolio.
