Sanofi’s Korea-based subsidiaries lauded for CSR efforts

Paris-based health care group Sanofi said two of its subsidiaries operating in Korea won the gold and silver trophies for CSR Program of the Year in Asia at the 2012 International Business Awards (IBA). Sanofi is the first pharmaceutical company to receive the CSR award, it said. Sanofi Pasteur won the gold trophy for its Helping Hands campaign, a program to help improve the medical welfare of vulnerable social groups. As part of the campaign, Sanofi Pasteur signed an agreement with the Seoul city government to provide free flu vaccines in May and will have 5,000 citizens from vulnerable classes vaccinated in October. Sanofi-Aventis, the silver laureate, is recognized for its Green Santa program that supports psychotherapy for poor children suffering from incurable diseases. The company has been raising funds for the program for nine years in partnership with Beautiful Store, a non-profit organization. An awards ceremony will be held on Oct. 15 in Seoul.
