We recently issued our 2021 Corporate Sustainability Report (PDF), outlining our efforts and impact in key areas throughout 2021. PTC’s commitment to corporate responsibility focuses on five areas: our patients, our people, our community, our values, and our environment.
As a growing, global company with a footprint in more than 50 countries, our mission remains focused on bringing more moments to our patients living with rare disease and their loved ones. Our approach to corporate social responsibility is rooted in our commitment to patient advocacy, access to medicines, and advancing science.
Caring about environmental, social, and governance issues has been a part of PTC’s fabric since its founding in 1998. We always strive to improve these efforts that we believe are vitally important to our continued success.
As a science-based company, we understand the impact people and companies have on the environment. We care about the world we live in and have a steadfast commitment to maintaining a healthy environment. We continuously ensure our actions are compliant with environmental requirements and regulations and encourage employee actions which are environmentally friendly. You can read more about some of the ways we’ve committed to environmental sustainability over the years in our report and in our Earth Day newsroom article here.
Since our founding in 1998, PTC has concentrated on discovering, developing, and commercializing treatments for patients living with rare disorders leveraging our expertise in RNA biology. As we have grown, our technology platforms have expanded from this foundational scientific expertise to include multiple approaches including gene therapy. We have a robust pipeline and multiple registration-directed clinical trials that hold hope for many rare diseases.
Our commitment to patient advocacy is a foundational hallmark of our company and have multiple programs in place that support patient communities and access to care.
Our work at PTC isn’t just a job. It’s a calling. And that philosophy is reflected in our #OnePTC culture.
Our Culture & Community
We are dedicated and committed to enriching the PTC culture. We aspire to enhance the employee experience and empower our employees to make a difference within internal and external communities. Our new, dedicated Culture & Community team is responsible for PTC’s ED&I program, Global Onboarding, Global Employee Outreach, and PTC’s response to COVID-19.
By the end of 2021, more than 10% of PTC’s global workforce served in at least one or more Culture & Community leadership roles delivering these global programs.
