Walking together on the road to recovery
For over a year now, we have seen first-hand how a global pandemic can be a disruptive force that is very hard to prepare for. Despite years of warnings that novel coronaviruses were among the pathogens most likely to cause a global health emergency, the pharmaceutical industry, as well as society at large, was ill-prepared for the COVID-19 pandemic. Billions of lives have been directly impacted, and we are all collectively – across sectors, regions and communities – working to recover from COVID-19 and its many impacts. Every person or organisation can play a role in the recovery. We believe that it is part of our duty as an integrated wealth manager to engage pharmaceutical companies or call on governments to take coordinated and equitable action, among others. At Van Lanschot Kempen, good health and well-being is a core sustainability theme.
