It is key that our business operates responsibly and ethically, in line with our values and with clear accountability. It is fundamental to our long-term success. We aim to have a robust set of policies, internal controls and management processes covering all of the areas for our business to operate responsibly and ethically. We also believe it is important to seek to minimise our environmental impact, in line with best practices.

The Board of Syncona is responsible for promoting the long-term sustainable success of the Company, generating value for shareholders and contributing to wider society. It has adopted and promotes corporate values and Group standards which set out the behaviour expected of all employees in their dealings with shareholders, other investors, portfolio companies, potential academic partners, colleagues, suppliers and others who engage with Syncona. The Board has ultimate oversight and accountability for sustainability at Syncona.

The Syncona team implements the strategy on a day-to-day basis and engages with the portfolio companies on sustainability. All members of the team receive training. It is their responsibility to support the portfolio companies to achieve the goals set out in Syncona’s Sustainability Policy, and to monitor, report and manage sustainability risks and opportunities. Sustainability responsibility and accountability is taken into account in the team’s performance reviews, which informs decisions on remuneration.
