On October 22, 2020, Sanofi was the first pharmaceutical company to receive a responsible supplier relations award. It was successfully renewed on 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017,2018,2019 and 2020.
To go beyond our commitment to this charter, we, at Procurement, have developed since 2015 a unique in-house SME plan sponsored by Olivier Bogillot, President Sanofi France. In 2021, a reduced selection of 15 French SMEs and start-ups based on innovation, agility and performance criteria will be made by buyers themselves. Through this proximity, we want to support these companies as best as possible and provide them with the support of the entire Sanofi eco-system. Our membership with PACTE PME also allows us to promote small innovative structures.
