Environmental, social and governance
Our approach to ESG
We focus on the ESG topics which matter most to our continued commercial success and ability to drive shareholder value, as well as key stakeholder relationships and how we fulfil our role in wider society.
We address these topics through the framework of Purpose, People, Planet and Products.

Every day, our people, tools, solutions and science make the world safer. From new ways to diagnose disease, to measurements which enable new treatment pathways, from helping farmers grow crops more sustainably, to ensuring the food on our plate is safe to eat.
Our purpose, Science for a Safer World, has never been more critical and is central to all we do.
We have almost 4,000 colleagues across the world. Our ability to attract, engage and develop talented people is essential to our continued success. Our goal is to create a sustainably great place to work for all our colleagues.
Our products and services are valued by our customers for their performance, quality and range. We recognise our products and services are also important in enabling our customers to meet their own sustainability goals and lower their environmental impacts.
Our products and services are helping to diagnose illnesses, develop new medicines and ensure food is safe to eat. However, we recognise that we need to reduce the environmental impact of our products and services across their lifecycle.
A commitment to high ethical standards has been at the heart of LGC since our inception in 1842. We expect our colleagues and business partners to do the right thing.
