Corporate Responsibility

As a growing healthcare technology company, focused on providing drug developers and healthcare providers with powerful enabling technologies, Avacta Group is inherently committed to improving the quality of people’s lives.

Our Responsibility

Avacta Group takes its responsibilities to our employees, customers and the communities and environment in which we operate very seriously. Our ethos is one of achieving the highest standards in everything we do.

Health and Safety

Avacta Group is committed to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of its staff. We also fully accept our responsibility for others who may be affected by our activities and we take these wider responsibilities very seriously.
The company regularly assesses the risks involved in its businesses and monitors its laboratory, production and office activities to minimise these risks at all times.

WEEE

Avacta meets all its obligations under the EU Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE).

Science and Academic Links

Avacta Group is an innovative healthcare technology developer with world-class scientific expertise and strong links to academia. We have ongoing research projects with the Universities of Manchester and Leeds, close ties to the world renowned University of Glasgow School of Veterinary Medicine and scientific advisors from the University of Edinburgh Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies and the University of Liverpool School of Veterinary Science.

Community Support

Avacta Group takes pride in contributing to our community through charitable activities. Avacta staff have walked the Yorkshire three peaks – a 27 mile trek including three of Yorkshire’s most well known hills. The walk was completed in under 10 hours and the group raised funds for the charity ‘Save the Children’. 

An even more ambitious challenge has recently been attempted in the form of the Great Knaresborough Bed Race. Six members of staff, dressed as ancient Britons, pushed the Avacta bed through Knaresborough and the river Nidd, achieving the third fastest time for a new team. Funds were raised for the charity ‘Action Aid’.
