Ethical Trading and Labour Standards

B. Braun understands the challenge of ensuring high social, ethical and environmental standards within its business and throughout its supply chain and is committed to working collaboratively with its suppliers to ensure that these standards are continually improving.

In order to achieve this, B. Braun has developed the Ethical Trading Policy based on the internationally acknowledged ETI base code.

This Policy defines B. Braun’s minimum standards and the basic principles we expect from all our suppliers and contractors. We are committed to ensuring that the standards outlined in the policy are effectively implemented, measured and monitored throughout our global supply chain and we require the support of our suppliers to achieve this goal.

Educational Grants and Healthcare Professional Funding

B. Braun understands the importance of ongoing professional education and training to the Healthcare Professionals and Organisations with which it works. To this end, B. Braun has an educational development fund, and a process for considering applications for grants to be made from that fund.  

B. Braun also recognises the importance of dealing with all customers, suppliers and competitors, fairly and equally. As such, nothing which B. Braun does with regard to funding Healthcare Professional education, is intended to incentivise and/or cause any Healthcare Professional or Healthcare Organisation to improperly purchase, prescribe, recommend or use B. Braun’s products or services. B. Braun does not give or accept, any illegal or unjustified benefits or advantages to its customers, suppliers or competitors.

Gender Pay Gap 2017

New legislation came into force in April 2017 and all UK employers with more than 250 employees are required to publish their gender pay gap in April 2018.  The gender pay gap gives a snapshot of any differences between the average earnings of male employees and the average earnings of female employees.  We report that the difference in mean pay between male and female employees for B. Braun Medical Ltd was 14.15% compared to a UK average of 18.1%.   Although our gender pay gap is lower than the UK average, our data shows us that we still have more work to do. 

The brochure below explains the factors behind our pay gap and we appreciate that making meaningful changes take time and investment, both of which B. Braun is fully committed to providing and within the brochure are details of how B. Braun Medical Ltd intends to close the gap over the coming years*.
