In order to structurally embed the organisation’s sustainable character in its policy, Dafra Pharma aims to make adequate long-term efforts, within its possibilities and at all levels, to focus innovatively on a healthy and inspiring working environment for all its employees and service providers both at home and abroad. On the other hand, Dafra Pharma aspires to be a reliable partner for all its stakeholders.

Dafra Pharma wants to underpin its vision on sustainability by focusing on two key corporate goals that have been part of the Dafra DNA for many years:

Be a great place to work
Dafra Pharma recognises human capital as a key value for the company. In order to further build this capital, Dafra Pharma will always be fully committed to the wellbeing of its personnel.

This is achieved by:

– having adequate attention to safety, health, technology and infrastructure

– with a healthy work-life balance

– by stimulating entrepreneurship and responsibility

– by offering training and career development opportunities

– and always with equality in terms of gender, age, background etc.

Recognition as a reliable company
Dafra Pharma is committed to further developing as a pharmaceutical company, towards all legislative bodies, in relation to hospitals, doctors and pharmacists, and with the cooperation of its entire promotion team, including all wholesalers involved, without losing sight of the following pillars:

– making healthcare in Africa accessible to a large part of the population, using a wide and diverse range of products

– the charitable nature of Dafra Pharma

Based on these two corporate goals, Dafra Pharma will continue to develop innovative solutions to address health problems in Africa and to further develop its business activities in a sustainable way, both now and in the future.


In June 2021, Dafra Pharma obtained the digital version of the Voka Charter for Sustainable Enterprises. That manifest puts the emphasis on the successful completion of predefined targets like the reduction of the global CO2-emissions. Receiving the certificate in 2021 means that Dafra Pharma has been positively evaluated for the third time within five years where all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the United Nations were treated at least once. As a result, Dafra Pharma will be honoured as an SDG Pioneer. The award ceremony will be organised in October 2021 when the certificate will be officially handed over by Nikhil Seth, Executive Director of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).
