WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Repligen Corporation (NASDAQ: RGEN) today released its inaugural sustainability report, available on the Company’s website. Repligen’s 2020 Sustainability Report provides an overview of the Company’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance in 2020 and into 2021, and provides disclosures aligned to three key reporting frameworks; the Value Reporting Foundation’s SASB Medical Equipment and Supplies Standard, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards Core option, and the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as informed by the Company’s materiality assessment. As a participant of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) since July 2020, this report also serves to fulfill Repligen’s first Communication on Progress (COP) commitment.

It underscores our multi-stakeholder approach to ESG, and it is our hope that its contents demonstrate our strong commitment to corporate responsibility and transparency, and our ambition as we increasingly embed sustainability into our daily business decisions and operations.”
