Sustainability at Midas Pharma
For Midas as a family owned company, Health, Safety, Environment and Ethics are important factors to assure a sustainable business in the future. Each and every one of us is responsible to protect our environment, our people and our customers. We also encourage our suppliers to share our values and to support us in achieving our sustainability goals.
Midas Pharma has already achieved a lot, especially in the areas of safety, biodiversity and usage of renewable energy.
In order to make sure that HSE related activities have a secular effect we have summarized our commitments with respect to Health, Safety, Environment, Community, Quality and Ethics in “Our Credo” which is signed by K.H. Schleicher (President & CEO, founder and owner) and the Managing Directors.
Our HSE Management System is embedded in our Quality Manual following ISO 9001 and linked to our “Code of Conduct” and our “Third Party Supplier Code”.
We have to permanently rethink our approach with respect to HSE, because developments in this area are advancing rapidly. Our aim is to adapt our concept, or to include new approaches in a timely manner.
For us, the statement from Greta Thunberg – “we can`t save the world by playing by the rules, because the rules have to be changed. Everything needs to change, and it has to start today” - has encouraged us to do much more for HSE in our day to day work.
Karl-Heinz Schleicher, President & CEO Midas Pharma

Dirk Weidenbach, COO Midas Pharma
“We want to be the leading pharmaceutical company with regard to the business segments we are focusing on, which requires besides high quality standards a clear common understanding about our responsibility for HSE aspects. For all employees working in a modern, progressive and future oriented enterprise it is mandatory to live health, safety and environment rules day by day.”
Sustainability - a matter of concern @ Midas
Sustainability has been a matter close to the hearts of Midas as a company and our employees worldwide for many years. This is reflected in numerous initatives.
100% “green” electricity out of renewable energy
Midas Pharma has started already 10 years ago to use 100% “green” electricity out of renewable energy at the headquarters in Ingelheim.
LED lights - small step with big effect
As part of our activities for a sustainable management of our office buildings, in March 2021 we replaced the high-maintenance and high-consumption halogen bulbs in the corridor lighting of the headquarters with environmentally friendly LED bulbs.
Cycling @ Midas
Since 2020, Midas offers the leasing of a bicycle, this initiative is called "JobRad". It not only saves CO2, but also keeps you fit. All employees can use the bike for commuting to work and in their free time.
Sustainable print paper
Even if digitalization moves forward rapidly in the company, printouts are still necessary in various cases. For this reason, we at Midas have decided to switch to 100% recycled paper. This measure saves wood, water, energy and as well a lot of CO2.
