As Global Head Ethics, Risk and Compliance, Martin Bischof strives to foster an environment across all levels of the organization that empowers the inherent desire of Sandoz leaders, managers, and associates to do what’s right and to deliver for patients and society with uncompromising integrity. He ensures that ethics, risk and compliance standards are embedded into the core of the Sandoz business and within the company’s way of working.

Compliance with laws and regulations is a non-negotiable must. It makes me proud when society and business partners recognize Sandoz for our ethical business conduct, and for aiming to do what’s right all the time.
