As world leader in homeopathic medicines, Boiron is committed to lead by example.
Our Commitment to the Environment
The Boiron Group has a strong sense of obligation to respect the environment. The preparation of our medicines has a limited impact on the environment. The main effects derive from extracting raw materials (continuity of species gathered), water pollution (mainly organic and biodegradable) and waste. As a counterbalance, Boiron promotes re-supplying wild or organically-farmed plants when possible. This sequentially improves the quality of raw materials used.
Additionally, the Boiron Group works with botanist-harvesters well-versed in diagnosing the land and employing harvesting strategies to anticipate continuity of supplies for the future. They generally harvest plants from their natural surroundings, which are then made into medicines according to the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States.
Our Commitment to Our Employees
It is Boiron’s deep conviction that the key to the performance and the growth of the company depends on the creativity and motivation of all concerned. To promote personal and professional growth, the Boiron Group pioneered a new approach to employee relations 20 years ago—one that fosters dialogue, self-confidence, and flexibility in tasks, hours and individualized work situations. In turn, the employees have a vested interest in the company’s performance through the employee profit-sharing program. Additionally, employees enjoy stress-reducing on-site massages, company-sponsored events to bring together family and friends, and an employee 401K program.
