Code of Ethics (2 Mb PDF)
"Our Brave culture helps define how we act and what we believe in. It distinguishes us from others, binds us together and keeps us focused on our purpose of enabling people with life-altering conditions to lead better lives. Our Brave culture is built on being responsible and applying high ethical standards and integrity to the choices and decisions we make. An important question we ask ourselves is “What’s the right thing to do and what’s the right way to do it?”
"What we do affects patients’ lives. This immense responsibility should always be top of mind as we challenge ourselves to be courageous as we pursue our goals. By following the spirit of this Code and behaving in a manner consistent with our values and Brave culture, we will continue to earn the trust and respect of those with whom we work, and those who we serve." - Flemming Ornskov, CEO
