Does Covonia have an Environmental Report?

STADA Arzneimittel, Covonia’s parent brand, has several sustainability pages on its website. However, these pages are quite vague and lack targets and statistics. As it is a large company and its sustainability information lacks detail, Covonia receives a bottom rating for our Environmental Report category.

What can Covonia do to improve its score? 


As it already has a good score in the Ethical Cold Remedies Sector, we recommend that Covonia contacts us to apply for Ethical Accreditation. After receiving its application, Covonia would receive some tips on how to improve its score even further.
